Miroslav Klose announces retirement from German national team

Miroslav Klose has announced his retirement from Germany's national squad a month after the team won the World Cup.

The 36-year-old scored two goals in Brazil, making him the highest-scoring player in World Cup history with 16, one ahead of Brazil's Ronaldo. With a career total of 71 goals, Klose is also the highest-scoring player for Germany.

Klose says in a statement posted on the German national team's website Monday that winning the World Cup "fulfilled a childhood dream on mine" and he had concluded that now was the best time to retire.
