The 33-year-old, who is currently in his second spell with Feyenoord, won his 112th and final cap in the group-stage defeat to Japan at the World Cup.

He scored a late penalty in that 3-1 loss in South Africa to become Denmark's joint record goalscorer with 52.

"The national team has always had the biggest impact on me in my career. It has been a great honour for me to represent my country," said Tomasson on the Danish Football Federation's official website.

"The national team has been a big part of my career for the last 13 years and it is an important chapter in my life that I am now ending.

"This was a decision that I had to give myself time to take."

Team-mates Jesper Gronkjaer and Martin Jorgensen have also announced their retirement from the national team after the World Cup.
