LONDON (AP) -- England captain Steven Gerrard has announced his retirement from international football.

The 34-year-old Liverpool midfielder made 114 appearances for England over 14 years.

Gerrard says Monday he "agonized'" over his future after the World Cup in Brazil, where England went out after the first round.

He tells the Football Association that "this has been a very difficult decision, one of the toughest I've had to make in my career."

Gerrard says his international retirement helps "ensure I can keep playing to a high level and giving everything to Liverpool Football Club."
