Keylor Navas Bows Out Of International Football At 37

The announcement means Navas will not be playing at this summer's Copa America in the USA.

The last of Navas' 114 caps for his country came in an international friendly against Argentina in March.

Navas also recently announced he will be leaving Paris Saint Germain at the end of this season.

The former Real Madrid goalkeeper played at three FIFA World Cups.

"This chapter of my life is coming to an end, I leave with my heart full of gratitude and my eyes looking forward, always carrying the name of our beloved Costa Rica," the goalkeeper said in a video posted on social media.

"It's a bittersweet feeling, difficult to accept, this stage has come to an end. It's not goodbye, it's see you later because I know our paths will continue to cross. Thank you Costa Rica, see you later, pura vida," he added.

Navas won the UEFA Champions League three times during his spell at Real Madrid.
