[Mario Gomez talks about the potential and importance of 21-year-old striker Timo Werner] He will dominate the attack for Germany for the next ten years. It is likely he will do the same in Europe, if he continues like that. He is level-headed and does a fantastic job. We need someone like Timo in such a form if we want to be world champions

[Mario Gomez retires from international duty] … now is the time to make way and give the many young and highly talented lads the opportunity to fulfill their dream
[In a Facebook post, Gomez said] For me, a huge dream has come true with the World Cup in Russia. Even if the cut-off and the pathetic departure in the round-round, we all failed. My entire career, I was allowed to play for the German National Team.
With the 2016 Euros and the 2018 World Cup, I was allowed to participate in two other big tournaments I feel the greatest gratitude for this, even if the expectations of the last tournament could not be met. You can’t always go out as a winner
My time in the national team was sporty not always easy, not always successful and yet beautiful! I’ve met a lot of people with whom I will be very connected.
Now it’s time to make room and give the many young and highly talented boys the opportunity to fulfill their dream, prove themselves, collect experiences and reach the best for Germany. The quality has each of these players who will come now!
I will always stay connected to the team and am like all Germans, now big fan of this team. For that I wish the team, the coaches and the whole team about team only the best!! I will enjoy the time during the matches with my family and fingers crossed. Even if it feels different for a lot of fans at the moment, this team will soon get us all a pleasure
