Overmars announces retirement
Flying Dutchman Marc Overmars has announced his retirement from international football. He will step down at the end of Holland's Euro 2004 campaign. As the third-highest capped player in the current Dutch side with 83 matches and 17 goals, the winger told Het Parool newspaper: "It is good for football and good for the people. The faces of the De Boers, (Edwin) Van der Sar and Overmars are too well known." The future of the 31-year-old former Ajax, Arsenal and Barcelona star is at present still uncertain following his release from the Spanish club, although he has been linked with two Premiership clubs in Liverpool and Newcastle United. But for now, all Overmars wants to do is finish his international career on a high. He said: "I still have value for this team. "I'm relieved the tournament is only three weeks long as otherwise I might struggle with injuries. It would be a different story if the tournament was held for four months."
