A lot of Newcastle United fans are not surprised to hear that Matt Ritchie has retired from international football, and they support his decision.
Do you support Ritchie's decision?
Yes, better for him and his family
No, should have continued his international career
Ritchie is loved on Tyneside, but he never got that affection north of the border, and I am glad he has decided to focus fully on the Toon.
Hopefully, we see him back in black & white soon.

When he fit, he’s good EPL player quality no doubt but always overlook from Scottland.
