Germany striker Celia Sasic is to retire from all football.
The 27-year-old announced today on her Facebook page that she was calling time on her career. "Football has been a part of my entire life and will continue to be," she wrote. "For eleven years I was in the Women's Bundesliga and ten and a half years with the national team, unforgettable moments and part of an unbelievable development. That makes me proud. Nevertheless, I have now decided to go a different way and my career is to end in professional football."
Celia Sasic, under her maiden name of Okoyino da Mbabi, was a part of the German side which won the FIFA Women's Under-19 World Cup in 2004. She went on to win 111 senior caps in total, scoring 63 times, whilst winning the European Championships in 2009 and 2013 and a bronze medal in the 2008 Olympic Games.
This year, she helped Frankfurt to win the UEFA Women's Champions League and won the Golden Boot at the World Cup with six goals. Her last international appearance came in the third/fourth place play-off match against England.
"I would, with all my heart, thank you to all those that made sure I had such a career, and supported me all the time," she continued. "Above all, my parents, my husband and even my whole family and friends who, for a long time, had to get along without me. But, of course, also for all the trainers and coaches, doctors, physiotherapists, team mates, supervisors, and all the others who accompanied me on my way."
