Germany forward, Thomas Müller has announced that he will most likely retire from the German national team after being knocked out of the World Cup on Thursday.

The 2014 World Champions were knocked out in the FIFA World Cup group stage for the second successive tournament despite beating Costa Rica 4-2 as Group E came to a captivating close.

“For me personally, this is an absolute catastrophe,” Thomas Müller told German broadcaster ARD after the match, before suggesting he will now retire from international football. “If this was my last game, I want to say a few words to our fans who have supported me for years. I have always tried to leave my heart on the field.”

Japan’s 2-1 win over Spain condemned the Germans to an early exit from Group E, a defeat branded a “catastrophe” by veteran striker Thomas Muller. Yet the failure to rule out the Japanese winner, when television replays appeared to show the ball going out of play before Kaoru Mitoma crossed for Ao Tanakato score, is likely to raise fresh questions about the review system.
