Larsson ends international career
Henrik Larsson
Larsson missed a penalty in his last game for Sweden
Former Celtic striker Henrik Larsson has announced his retirement from international football with Sweden.

"It is time to quit now. It feels right. I'm done with the national team," the 34-year-old Larsson told TV station Canal Plus.

Larsson's decision ends a 13-year international career, during which he scored 36 goals in 93 matches.

After helping Barcelona win the Champions League in May, Larsson left the Spanish club to join Helsingborg.

Larsson's last international match was Sweden's 2-0 defeat to Germany in the second round of the World Cup, in a game in which the former Celtic striker missed a second-half penalty.
