Player with longest appearances in team

After he was being picked 137 times and giving 11 goals for his country Ildefons Lima unfortunately have said goodbye to the national team. Starting in 1997 with only 17 years of age he began to play at the 1:4 defeat against Estonia where at the same time it was the second official international game for the state. His career had lasted for 26 years and ended on Tuesday versus Switzerland when the 43-year-old defender was in the starting line-up who was substituted in the twenty third minute, and like that became the footballer that had the longest status in this sport on senior level.
Playing in the same match the captain of Andorra also became the oldest ever footballer to participate at qualifiers for the European championship.
