Leanne Crichton has announced that she has retired from international football.
Capped 72 times by her country, the midfielder made her debut in 2006 before going on to represent Scotland at EURO 2017 and the FIFA Women's World Cup in 2019. Ahead of the upcoming qualifiers against Cyprus and Portugal she has decided to call time on her international career.
Aged 33, Crichton will now focus on her club football as she aims to retain the SWPL title with Glasgow City. The midfielder, who played for Notts County for a spell in the FA WSL, also has a promising media career north of the border as a presenter and pundit with BBC Scotland.
Leanne explained to www.scottishfa.co.uk: "It's been something I've thought about for quite a while now, and processed it over a number of months.
"During this time when the women's game has stopped in Scotland it's given me an opportunity to think about what my future holds as well as prioritise the next steps. As much as it's a tough decision and one I haven't taken easily, I know in my heart I'm content with it. It's exciting to think how far the team can go but for me personally, I've probably given as much as I possibly can. I now want to focus on my club football."
