Diego Godin Announces his Retirement From Professional Football

Former Uruguay defender Diego Godin retired from professional soccer, ending a 20-year career at age 37. Godin played in four World Cups and spent much of his club career in Spain, notably at Atlético Madrid from 2010 to 2019. This season, he played in Argentina for Velez Sarsfield. Godin announced his retirement a day after his final appearance for Velez in a 1-0 loss to Huracan.

Professional Career:

Godin played more than 600 professional matches and scored 38 goals in his career. He lifted 10 titles, including two at the Europa League. He played for Uruguay at the past four World Cups.

Godín won the UEFA Europa League twice with Atlético and claimed the UEFA Super Cup three times — lifting it as club captain the final time, in 2018. He won the Copa del Rey in 2013 against eternal rival Real Madrid and scored Atleti’s lone goal against Los Blancos in the 2014 UEFA Champions League final, although European Cup success ultimately eluded Godín during his Atleti career.
