Thomas Muller answers critics with two goals vs. Norway to end drought

Thomas Muller netted two goals as Germany began their World Cup title defence with a win over Norway.

"It's good for me, people will leave me alone now," a beaming Thomas Muller said in Oslo as Germany began their 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign on Sunday night.

The Bayern Munich forward's two goals against Norway, his 33rd and 34th for the Nationalmannschaft, helped the world champions to an easy 3-0 win and put an end to a scoring drought that only stretched three months but felt like an eternity.

It was Muller's failure to find the net at Euro 2016 in France, his failure to find goals where...

Schweinsteiger return and Muller the swan on skates for Germany

Thomas Muller scored twice and gave an assist in Germany's 3-0 victory over Norway.
Thomas Muller received a rather strange appraisal of his performance against Norway.

While the result itself was nothing short of routine, there was a slightly confusing air that hung over Germany's 3-0 World Cup qualifying win over Norway.

The match was ticking over nicely until things took a turn for the weird in the 72nd minute, when it was announced that Bastian Schweinsteiger was coming on as a German substitute.

Of course, this is coming just days after the veteran midfielder made his final ever appearance for Die Mannschaft before retiring from international football amid...

Germany and Norway's rare rivalry rekindled in World Cup qualifying

When Germany meet Norway Sunday to start their World Cup qualifying campaign, the crowd in Oslo will be treated to one of the rarer international fixtures. In the past 50 years, the two sides have played only five games against each other. And these were all friendlies. Germany and Norway haven't met competitively since November 1953.

That is, if you consult record books in Germany. If you delve into Norwegian archives, however, you'll come across two interesting, even historic qualifiers staged...

Germany bid farewell to Bastian Schweinsteiger, a national team icon

One hundred and twenty-one, and out. Bastian Schweinsteiger's farewell game for the Nationalmannschaft was an unexpectedly moving affair, replete with tears from the 32-year-old, love from his teammates and a gentle dig from Thomas Muller, who had carried the World Cup winner on his shoulders together with Manuel Neuer at the final whistle. "I think he was lighter in the past," Muller joked.

A half-empty Borussia Park, with Finland on the opposing side, provided a strange backdrop to Schweinsteiger's...

Brazil vs. Germany not just World Cup revenge in Horst Hrubesch farewell

Germany coach Horst Hrubesch is built like an oak tree. He has played in European Cup, European Championship and World Cup finals. He has managed clubs in the second division and the Bundesliga, briefly served as assistant national coach and guided teams to the European Under-19 and U21 Championships. After 45 years in the game, he will retire next month because he has seen and done everything there is to see and do in football.

Hrubesch has one final hurdle -- the men's Olympic football final against...

2016 Olympics men's football preview

The Olympic football tournament is almost set to kick off in Rio de Janeiro. Here is a preview of all 16 teams.


BRAZIL: The Brazilians are red-hot favourites to at last win the only title they are lacking, both because of the depleted competition and because they are taking it so seriously. For many Brazilians, the men's football tournament will be the most important part of the Games. Moreover, after years of disappointment, Brazil need something special to bring the fans back onside.
