Retirement

The 31-year-old scored 18 goals in 87 appearances for Belgium and represented them at two FIFA World Cups, helping them finish third in Russia last year.

“After 12 years of representing Belgium at the highest level, I have decided to retire from senior international football,” Fellaini said in a statement on Twitter.

“I feel the time is right for me to step down and allow the next generation of players to continue this very successful period in Belgian football history.

“I have many amazing memories… and I am very proud Belgium is currently number one in the FIFA rankings.”

Fellaini joined Chinese Super League (CSL) side Shandong Luneng in February, ending a five-and-a-half year spell at English Premier League (EPL) side Manchester United.
