Munich - Bastian Schweinsteiger has no intention of quitting
the German national team in the wake of last month's World Cup title and is
rather setting his sights on winning Euro 2016 as well.
Schweinsteiger, 30, told the Bild paper in an interview
published on Thursday that he would be ready to captain the German team and
that his current knee injury is not endangering his career.
The Bayern Munich midfielder said he considered his
international future after the July 13 World Cup final in which Germany beat
Argentina 1-0 in Rio, but decided not to follow captain Philipp Lahm, striker
Miroslav Klose and defender Per Mertesacker into retirement.
"My clear aim is the Euro 2016 title. I
definitely want to play for Germany until then. The World Cup title has made me
even more greedy," Schweinsteiger said.
