It's been epic - Walters calls it a day


Republic of Ireland international Jonathan Walters has announced his retirement from football at the age of 35.

Having not played since suffering an Achilles injury in September, Walters has conceded defeat in his battle to recover.

“Isn’t it ironic…my Achilles heel has literally been my Achilles heel and finished me off! I am now retired from playing football It’s been epic. Veni vidi vici," Walters tweeted on Friday.

Walters won 54 caps for the Republic of Ireland, scoring 14 goals, and was instrumental in the run to Euro 2016. His final appearance for the Boys in Green came in the 4-1 defeat to Wales in the UEFA Nations League.

At club level Walters enjoyed spells at Ipswich and Hull but he made over 200 appearances for Stoke City during a seven-year spell at the club.
