It is a very sad day in German Football today. Wow, those words should never be used together in a sentence, but today, it will be. Die Mannschaft captain, Philip Lahm, confirms his retirement from international play, at still an early age of 30. But, what did you expect? He did achieve the ultimate prize, so there’s no use to more agonizing games than he had already had with Bayern München.
Lahm claims that he had already told Jaöchim Löw about this the night after claiming the ‘Holy Grail’. But, what will happen to Klöse, 36, and B. Schweinsteiger, 30?
Thank you, captain.
