Spain goalie Iker Casillas equalled the European appearances record, with his 166th cap for Spain and has admitted he could retire soon.

Casillas, who kept a clean sheet in the goalless draw against Romania was happy to reach the landmark, but conceded his time could be up in the international scene soon.

“I am happy to reach 166 games and be the player with the most games for the national team,” he said via Periscope.

“In these years I have lived good times and bad times, but I will stick with the good ones.”

Casillas added: “The time of my retirement is getting closer and closer. It’s clear that time passes everyone and I am no exception of that.

“But I have hope and I would like to be with this team full of youngsters. I don’t know if it’s my last year with Spain, I only think about enjoying each day.”
