Thomas Muller has opened up on his miss against England on Tuesday, that would have been the equaliser for Germany, saying it "hurts like hell."
England were worthy winners in their Euro 2020 last 16 clash with Germany, as Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane scored late in the game to secure a historic win at Wembley.
Sterling's opener sent the crowd into raptures but there was still plenty of time for Joachim Low's side to get back into the game.
It was actually the Manchester City forward who gave them a great chance. His misplaced pass went to Kai Havertz who split the England defence open and allowed Muller to run onto the ball.
The Bayern Munich forward was one-on-one with Jordan Pickford as he shot from the edge of the area but somehow managed to put his shot wide.
It was a huge moment as it would have made it 1-1 and Muller posted on his Instagram account to explain how much the miss hurt him.
"That was it, that one moment that sticks in your mind and keeps you awake at night," he said on social media, "The kind of moment you work for, train for, live for. The moment where it falls on you to get your team back on level terms in a tight knockout game and send an entire football nation into ecstasy.
"To have this opportunity and then waste it hurts like hell. It hurts to think about the whole team, my teammates and our coach, who all put their trust in me to be there and deliver at exactly that moment.
"But most of all, it hurts because of all the Germany fans out there who stood by us and supported us throughout this tournament, despite the difficult circumstances."
Muller was kicked out of the national team by Low in March 2019, following the disaster of the 2018 World Cup campaign that the manager somehow survived.
The 31-year-old was brought back into the hold, along with Mats Hummels, ahead of the Euros to try and help Low in his last tournament as manager.
The World Cup winning manager did end his spell in charge of the national team in the way he lived his entire tenure, when he was spotted picking his nose during the game.
Former Bayern boss Hansi Flick will now take charge and he will no doubt hope Muller can shake off the miss against England to be part of his plans.
