New Delhi: India defender Mahesh Gawli, who represented the country in 82 matches, on Monday brought the curtain down on his 12-year-old international career.
Gawli, who plays for Dempo on the domestic circuit, will now focus only on club football.
"Football is a demanding sport. I have played at the highest level for 14-15 years and once you play for your country, you need to achieve continuously. I feel I've had enough of international football," said Gawli, who made his debut against Thailand during the pre-Olympic qualifiers in July, 1999.
