Former England No 1 Paul Robinson has retired from football at the age of 37.

Robinson, who began his career at Leeds United in 1998, announced his decision on Monday after battling an ongoing back injury during his most recent spell at Premier League side Burnley.

The ex-Tottenham Hotspur stopper received 41 caps for the national team and kept four out of five clean sheets when starting in goal during England’s 2006 World Cup campaign.

Robinson moved to Burnley in 2016, where he has been back-up to first-choice goalkeeper Tom Heaton, but has now decided to call time on his playing career.
