What's Next For Wanyama After An Early International Football Retirement

"All good things must come to an end eventually, and after long consideration I have made the really difficult decision to retire from international football" this are some of the words of Wanyama's letter which was shared across his social media platforms on Monday evening.

Victor Wanyama debuted for Harambee Stars in 2007 as a 15 years old midfielder in Kenyas friendly against Nigeria.At that level at such an age was a clear indication that Wanyama was going to achieve great things in his football career.Upto date he remains the only Kenyan footballer to have played in the English Premier League when he did so with Southampton and Tottenham Hotspurs between 2013 and 2020.

In 2013 he took over as Harambee Stars captain from Dennis Oliech and had achieved a great milestone with stars the most memorable one being guiding Kenya to the 2019 AFCON finals in Egypt.

His current move of retirement from the national team at only 30 years has been received by many as an early move as some footballers like Ibrahimovic and Ronaldo are still dependable players in their national team squads in their late thirties and fourty for Ibrahimovic.

With the services of first rising midfielder Richard Odada, to you think the space left in the midfield due to Wanyama's retirement will be filled fully? Feel free to share your views on the comment section and remember to share and follow for more news.
