Frank Lampard has retired from international football after winning 106 caps with England.
The 36-year-old was released by Chelsea in May after 13 years at the London club and he signed for New York City before agreeing to move to Manchester City on a six-month loan deal.
Lampard scored 29 goals for England and captained the team in their last group match against Costa Rica at this year's World Cup in Brazil.
"I have taken the decision to retire from international football," he said in a statement on Tuesday.
"It has been a very tough decision for me to make which is why I have given it so much thought since the World Cup. I have always been exceptionally proud and honoured to represent my country and have to say looking back I have enjoyed every minute of wearing the England shirt."
Lampard said it was time put his family first given that he was soon to be playing in the United States.
"Also, to concentrate on how I can perform consistently to the best of my abilities over my next few years in club football," he added.
England captain Steven Gerrard ended his long international career last month.
Lampard made his international debut against Belgium in 1999, going on to play at three World Cups and two European Championships.
