New Zealand international Shane Smeltz confirms his retirement

Shane Smeltz sits second on the A-League's all-time record goal-scoring list with 92 goals.

Two-time A-League golden boot winner Shane Smeltz says his 18-year professional football career is over.

The 36-year-old -- who last played for Borneo FC in Indonesia -- earned 58 caps for the New Zealand between 2003 and 2017 and nabbed 24 goals.

He scored the goal in the All White's famous 1-1 draw with Italy at the 2010 World Cup.

An old-fashioned, predatory No. 9, German-born Gold Coast-raised Smeltz also played for clubs in Australia, England, Turkey and Malaysia.

He scored 24 goals in 51 Nix appearances and is second on the A-League's record goal scorers list with 92 goals.

He was the competition's top scorer in 2008-09 for Wellington and 2009-10 for Gold Coast United.

He also played for Perth Glory (28 goals in 58 appearances) and Sydney FC (12 goals in 43) in the A-League.

"It's difficult to put a career into words. The time comes to us all & I guess I know the right time is now for me to announce my retirement from professional football," Smeltz posted on Instagram.

"Now that I've closed the door on my playing days I'm looking forward to taking every bit of experience & knowledge I've gained into my next chapter and I'm pleased to say I will be staying in the game that I love until I stop breathing."

Smeltz said he'd now look to get into coaching.
