World of my own


"In watching Klose over the last four tournaments, every goal he has scored has been less about himself and more of a means to an end - a result that wouldn’t arrive until what was likely his final match in a Germany shirt. But when it did, Klose sat stoically, alone on the German bench. At full-time, cameras panned to the German goal machine as he sat motionless next to the pitch. With his medal around his neck, he put his hands to his face while staring blankly at an empty field where his international career likely ended. Like his ability to fly under the radar at this World Cup edition, Klose seemed to act as though what had just happened was inexplicable. At his age, following four World Cup tournaments, the game’s greatest scorer had finally scored the final prize - a fitting end to a legendary career that was easy to miss if you didn’t take pause to realize World Cup greatness was in our midst."

Thank you for inspiring me to love football. I will never forget your very first score at WC2002. It was a header :D
You’re the hero of Die Mannschaft and the legend in my heart!

Philipp Lahm’s official statement in full
Dear friends of football,  During the last season I have made the decision to quit my international career after the World Cup. I told Jogi Löw about this during the breakfast on Monday. I am happy and thankful that the end of my international career coincided with the win of the World Cup in Brazil.
This morning I said goodbye to DFB’s president Wolfgang Niersbach and thanked him in place of the whole coaching team around Joachim Löw, Hansi Flick, Andy Köpke and team manager Oliver Bierhoff for the great teamwork during the last ten years.
I have been on vacation for three days and thus have time to end my international career mentally.
Thank you so much for a wonderful time, 
Best wishes Philipp Lahm
