The FIFA Qatar World Cup 2022 is delivering surprise after surprise. Argentina lost to Saudi Arabia in the group stage, Spain and Germany to Japan, France to Tunisia, and Belgium to Morocco—the surprises didn’t end there. In the end, big teams like Belgium and Germany also left the group stage. A question also arose with Germany’s departure last night.

Germany has been eliminated from the group stage in two consecutive World Cups. With a loss to Japan and a draw with Spain, the fate of the last sixteen was not only in their own hands but also had to look to the results of other matches. The Germans fell behind there, with the four-time champions knocked out by Spain after a 4-2 win over Costa Rica.

Brazil’s World Cup-winning forward Thomas Muller called failure to reach the knockouts in another World Cup an ‘extreme disaster’. With the bitter experience of being knocked out of the group stage twice in a row, he said, “It is an extreme disaster. It was an incredibly bittersweet experience for us because our result would have been enough (if Spain had not lost to Japan). There is a feeling of powerlessness.

In response to the question whether this is the end of his 12-year career in Germany’s jersey, Muller said, ‘I want to say something to the German fans about whether this is my last match for Germany or not; It (playing in the national team) was a great joyous experience. thank you I always played my heart out on the field. Sometimes happy tears and sometimes sad. I did everything with love. Now it is necessary to think about all the issues.

Muller, 33, hints at retirement. However, Müller, who won the award for the highest goal scorer in the 2010 World Cup, has not officially announced anything yet. He also had a great contribution as Germany became the champion in the 2014 World Cup. He won the ‘Silver Ball’ and ‘Silver Boot’ as the second-highest goal scorer and second-best player.
