Thomas Müller has retired following Germany’s exit from the World Cup
Germany is out of the Qatar World Cup, and one of the team’s most valuable players has hung his hat up.
Thomas Müller has retired from international football
The German footballer who also plays for Bundesliga club Bayern Munich announced his retirement from the German national team following Germany’s elimination from the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
One of the greatest of his generation, Müller made his debut with the German national team in 2010 and played a total of 122 official matches where he scored 44 goals. He also won the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and is considered the youngest player to score in the history of a World Cup at the age of 20.
Qatar 2022 was the fourth World Cup that Müller has played with Germany, after South Africa in 2010, Brazil in 2014, and Russia in 2018.
Germany’s result in the last two World Cups should not take away from Müller and his team’s impressive performances over the years.
Now the 33-year-old is set to return back to Germany and prepare for the rest of the season with Bayern Munich. His contract still extends for another year, and there’s no indication that this is it for Müller at the club level.
