Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s international career has come to an end in Gabon.

It is a turning page. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will retire from the Gabonese national team at the age of 32. His federation’s social media accounts were used to spread the word. “I am announcing the end of my international career after 13 proud years representing my country,” the athlete begins, recounting some of his fondest experiences, including “the day I returned from Nigeria with the African Golden Ball.”

After being called up for the first time by the Panthers in 2009, Aubameyang will have amassed 73 caps and 30 goals, becoming the Gabonese national team’s all-time leading scorer. He never won the CAN, but he did make it to the quarterfinals in 2012, finishing as joint top scorer.

The African Cup of Nations earlier this year did not proceed as planned. He had to withdraw from the competition early because to the covid-19.
