Brazil’s former international forward Edmundo revealed Friday that he has decided to retire a year earlier than expected after missing a vital penalty for club side Vasco de Gama.

“I can no longer handle these kinds of emotions… I’m going to take early retirement,” he told the press after the match.

The 37-year-old, known to supporters as ‘The Animal’, enjoyed a career that saw him play in Italy for Fiorentina and Napoli, Japan and his native Brazil.

He also picked up 42 caps for his country, winning the Copa America in 1997, and a runners-up medal at the World Cup finals in France a year later.
