World Cup winner Luca Toni announces retirement

VERONA, Italy (AP) World Cup winner Luca Toni says he will retire after Sunday's match against Serie A champion Juventus.

The 38-year-old Hellas Verona striker says "this has been the worst year of my career. ... Maybe I wouldn't stop if we had had a good season."

Verona is in last place and has been mathematically relegated to Serie B. Slowed by injuries, Toni has scored five goals in 22 appearances this season.
