Following Germany’s disappointing exit from Euro 2024 after a 2-1 quarter-final loss to Spain, the 34-year-old hinted that the match could be his final appearance for Die Mannschaft.

“Realistically speaking, it is possible that this was my last international match,” he stated.

“I will sit down with the national coach afterwards.

“We have a very trusting relationship.

“But as I said, realistically it is quite possible.”

According to Bild Sport, Muller has indeed played his last match for Germany and will announce his retirement from international duty.

He will follow in the footsteps of Toni Kroos, who not only also exited the international scene after the Euros but retired from football entirely.

However, Muller will continue to feature for Bayern Munich and honour his contract, which runs until 2025.
