Bayern Munich legend Thomas Müller has indeed played his final game for Germany, and has made the decision to retire from international football.

It is the end of an era in Germany, as Thomas Müller has made the decision to call time on his international career. The attacking midfielder made his national team debut 14 years ago, and went on to represent the DFB on a whopping 131 occasions.

Only two players have made more appearances for Germany than Müller, who is also his country's joint-sixth leading goalscorer of all time.

The Raumdeuter played his final game for Germany last week as Julian Nagelsmann's side fell to a heartbreaking 2-1 defeat to Spain in the quarterfinals of Euro 2024. He said after the game that it was very likely his final appearance for the Germany national team.

Müller was part of the Germany squad that won the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. The Bayern Munich star was also the top scorer at the 2010 World Cup. He matched his five goal tally four years later, playing a crucial role in Germany's historic triumph.

Thomas Müller will without a doubt be remembered as one of the greatest players to ever play for Germany, and his time with the national team will be fondly remembered for years to come.

With his Bayern Munich contract expiring in 12 months' time, the coming season could also be Müller's final campaign in club football. The hope at FC Bayern will be if that is to be the case, he can retire by helping them win yet another Bundesliga title.
