Mats Hummels (32), Toni Kroos (31), Thomas Müller (31) and Ilkay Gündogan (30) could all retire from international football after Germany crashed out of the Euros following a 2-0 defeat to England on Tuesday, according to Bild.


Speaking after the defeat, Hummels admitted that he will consider whether to keep playing for Germany "sometime in a few weeks".

Kroos, meanwhile, is expected to retire from Germany duty after previously admitting that he would make a decision on his international future after the Euros.

As for Müller and Gündogan, it's currently uncertain if they want to remain a part of the German national team set-up under new coach Hansi Flick.

Müller played a key role under Flick at Bayern, which could make him more inclined to keep playing for 'Die Mannschaft'.
