Written by on May 19, 2022

Gabon captain and Barcelona striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has retired from international football, with only two weeks before the start of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

32-year-old Aubameyang made a total of sixty-eight appearances for the Panthers of Gabon and scored twenty-nine goals, which makes him the nation’s all-time leading scorer.

In a message, the Gabon Football Federation (Fegafoot) said it had received a letter from the striker announcing his retirement.

Aubameyang was born in France and played briefly for the French under-21 side before switching to play for Gabon to follow in the footsteps of his father, who captained the side at their first Nations Cup finals appearance in 1994.
