Thomas Müller and Robert Lewandowski both wrote their names into their nation’s history books this autumn when they made their 100th international appearances. The Pole already reached this landmark in October’s UEFA Nations League match against Portugal, while Müller quickly followed on Monday in the 2-2 draw with the Netherlands.
“I’d like to warmly congratulate Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Müller on behalf of Bayern Munich. Winning 100 caps for your country is something special and a fantastic milestone. FC Bayern is very proud to have these two extraordinary footballers among its ranks,” declared club chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.
Lewandowski made his debut for Poland in September 2008, captaining his nation since December 2014. He is the country’s all-time top scorer with 55 goals in his 102 appearances. Müller first pulled on the Germany shirt in November 2009 at the Allianz Arena, and with 38 goals is the country’s top scorer among currently active players. His five goals at the 2014 FIFA World Cup saw him play a major part in Germany’s triumph in Brazil. He also won the Golden Boot at the 2010 edition in South Africa.
Both players will be honoured ahead of Saturday’s Bundesliga match against Fortuna Düsseldorf at the Allianz Arena.
