Socceroos attacking midfielder Brett Holman announced his retirement from international soccer on Wednesday, giving up any chance of representing Australia at a second successive World Cup.A hard-running midfielder with a rasping shot, Holman vindicated his selection for the 2010 World Cup finals with a superb winner in the game against Serbia and was considered a likely pick for this year's tournament in Brazil.Holman made his debut for Australia against Bahrain in 2006 and featured in his country's 2007 and 2011 Asian Cup campaigns as well as in qualifying for the 2010 and 2014 World Cups.In South Africa four years ago, Holman played in all three games and scored two of his country's three goals -- including the 25-yard thunderbolt that gave the Socceroos a 2-1 win over Serbia as Australia bowed out in the group stage.
