Udinese star Antonio Di Natale has confirmed he will retire from football following this summer’s European Championships.

The 34-year-old has played over 300 matches for Udinese, whom he joined in 2004 from Empoli, in which time he has bagged 158 goals. But he feels it is time to hang up his boots following the summer tournament.

“We’ll go to the Euros, and then I’ll stop. Everything will end,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

As well as being Italian Footballer of the Year in 2010, he has also won the Capocannoniere – Top Scorer – title for the last two years running.
