After a crazy night of the World Cup in Qatar, Group E's table took shape and saw Japan come in the knockout stage as group winners alongside Spain following up with second place. Although Germany claimed an eventual 4-2 win over Costa Rica, it's not enough for the spot for the next round. After the match, Muller said goodbye to the supporters because it might have been his last international match. The last game against Costa Rica has probably been the last of Thomas Muller in a Germany shirt.

"If that was my last game for Germany, a few words to the German fans: It was a tremendous pleasure," he said to reporters after the win. "Thank you very much. I always tried to show my heart on the pitch. Sometimes there were tears of joy, sometimes pain.
"I did it with love. I need to think about everything else now."

Thomas Muller is one of the greatest of this generation. He made his debut with his national team in 2010 and participated in a total of 122 official games, in which he scored 44 goals. He is also known for winning the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and is considered the youngest player to score in the history of a World Cup at age 20.
Germany is now eliminated from the World Cup in the group stages in back-to-back tournaments after winning the tournament in 2014. Muller was not called up from the national team from 2019 to 2021 under Joachim Lowe, but now could be set to call time on his own terms after yet more disappointment.


Muller still has plenty to offer at the club level, and will now turn his attention back toward Bayern Munich.
