History-making Germany striker Miroslav Klose has retired from international football. The thirty-six-year-old's announcement comes a month after his national side won the World Cup for a fourth time. Klose scored two goals in Brazil, making him the highest-scoring player in the tournament's history. With a career total of 71 goals, Klose is also the highest-scoring player for Germany. The Lazio striker is the second member of the World Cup winning side to step down after captain Philipp Lahm. Germany coach Joachim Loew has labelled Klose a "world star," and "one of the greatest strikers in football."
