Iran's Sardar Azmoun announces international retirement after World Cup abuse

Iran striker Sardar Azmoun announced his retirement from international football on Thursday, claiming the insults he received had ruined his mother's health.

Iran were knocked out of the World Cup after a win, a defeat and a draw in their three Group B matches, and Azmoun, their top scorer in qualifying, did not replicate his best form in Russia, where he failed to score a single goal.
