Speaking to the local press the former Sunderland winger said: "I won't be playing for my country again for the rest of the season. I eliminated myself from selection after the last World Cup qualifier.

"I made this decision because I want to concentrate on my club football and help to get Ipswich up the table.

"It can be difficult to choose between club and country, and for the last couple of games for Ipswich I haven't been at my best.

"The travelling has really got to me recently. I've been really exhausted, so it's good to have a break and recharge my batteries.

"The last few days have given me this chance, to spend some time with my family. The travelling of the last few months had taken it out of me, though I'm not using that as an excuse,"
