I think its a shame that Dennis has given up his international career but its also good for us as he now only has to concentrate on playing club football. Hes got the experience and now all he has to worry about is the league rather than internationals aswell.

Yes there are certainly pros and cons but thesedays they sometime come out of international retirement so it may not be final.

Sorry to hear about the national side's problems. Hopefully they can be sorted and Dennis can add to his excellent haul of caps.
