German football legend, Miroslav Klose, has announced his retirement from international football today, at age 36. According to the AFP in Berlin… “German striker Miroslav Klose, the all-time World Cup top scorer, announced his retirement from international football on Monday.
The 36-year-old leaves the German national team as a World Cup winner after last month helping Joachim Loew’s side to their first global crown since 1990 when they defeated Argentina 1-0 in the Rio-hosted final.
The Lazio frontman picked up his 16th goal, in what was his fourth World Cup, to surpass Brazilian Ronaldo as the tournament’s leading scorer.
He is one of just three players, alongside Pele and Uwe Seeler, to score in four World Cups, and finishes his Germany career as the country’s all-time leading scorer with 71 goals in 137 appearances.”
