Germany forward, Thomas Muller has hinted that he might call it time on his international career after Germany’s exit from the 2022 World Cup.
Recall that Germany defeated Costa Rica 4-2 on Thursday, but Spain’s shocking 2-1 loss to Japan sent the Die Mannschaft out of the tournament.
Speaking after the game, Muller, who played in all three of Germany’s group-stage fixtures, including a 2-1 defeat to Japan and a 1-1 draw with Spain, told reporters after the win over Costa Rica (via Fabrizio Romano):
“If this was my last game, it would be a huge pleasure. I have done it with love.
“We experienced incredible moments together. In every game, I tried to leave my heart on the pitch.”
Müller was born in Weilheim in Oberbayern, Bavaria. He grew up in the nearby village of Pähl, which became the centre of media attention during his World Cup exploits. His parents are Klaudia and Gerhard, and he has a brother, Simon, who is two and a half years younger.
Müller married his long-time girlfriend Lisa Trede, a semi-professional equestrian who works on a farm, in December 2009 after being engaged for two years. In June 2011, he became an ambassador for YoungWings, a charity that helps children who have suffered bereavement or trauma. He is Catholic.
