Robinson looking to the future

Midfielder hopes to benefit from international retirement

Carl Robinson believes his retirement from international football will help prolong his career with Toronto FC. Following Wales' defeat to Germany in World Cup Qualifying last week, the Reds midfielder announced he will stop playing internationally and he hopes the decision will benefit him in the future.

"It is one of the hardest decisions I have had to make in my life," said Robinson. "It's every kids dream to play professional football and once you achieve that to get the opportunity to represent your country is a massive honour. To decide not to carry on with that is a massive decision. It is something I have been thinking about for the last five or six months. I felt the decision was right because of where I am in my career at the moment, playing my football over here in North America."
