The all-time record cap holder for the Netherlands announced his international retirement on Sunday after a conversation with new Oranje boss Ronald Koeman.

Speaking to De Telegraaf, Sneijder said he wants to pull on the Oranje shirt one last time, “It is my wish – and that is also known by the KNVB – to say goodbye to my fellow internationals and the Oranje-fans.”

Sneijder wants the same farewell that Lukas Podolski got with Germany,

“In a friendly international match against England, he said goodbye as a 130-fold international with Germany, and he also scored the winning 1-0, which made the party complete, it was a beautiful and well-deserved farewell.

“I hope that the KNVB will grant me that after the silver World Cup of 2010 and the 2014 bronze World Cup.”
