Thomas Muller Replies Perfectly To Questions About His Lack Of Goals

The sight of Thomas Muller missing a series of chances at a major tournament isn't one football fans are accustomed to. The Bayern Munich man usually directs the ball into the back of the net with unerring ease but is yet to get his name on the scoresheet at Euro 2016.

Muller, who was the leading goalscorer at the 2010 World Cup and second top scorer four years later as Germany were crowned champions, has struggled for form in France and even missed a penalty in Saturday's quarter-final shoot out victory over Italy. However, the 26-year-old isn't bothered in the slightest about how many goals he scores as long as 'Die Mannschaft' finish the tournament as European champions.

Speaking at a news conference in Marseille ahead of Thursday's semi-final with France, Muller said:


"Goals are not what fuels me. They are maybe the paint job to my car, to look good to the outside. But I am fuelled by my desire for success.

"Sure, I would have liked to score. But In South Africa, I finished the World Cup as the top scorer. I missed out in the semi-final with a suspension and we went home. I enjoyed Brazil a lot more.

"But a goal would help as I would not to have to answer questions about me not scoring anymore."


It'd take a brave (or foolish) person to bet against the Bavarian hitting form at the business end of the tournament. Will the Champions League and World Cup winner be able to fire Joachim Low's men to Euros victory, though? Have your say in the comments section, below.
