Birgit Prinz retires

Former Germany captain Birgit Prinz retires

BERLIN - Germany's football federation says former women's national team captain Birgit Prinz is retiring from the sport for good, ending a storied career that included two World Cup and five European titles.

The DFB says the 33-year-old Prinz announced her full retirement to media on Friday. Prinz had already quit the national team after Germany's loss to Japan in this year's Women's World Cup.

Prinz became the symbol of German women's football by making 214 international appearances, driving the team to World Cup wins in 2003 and '07.

She failed to perform during this year's tournament in Germany and was benched early on, leading to early speculation she would quit the sport.

She can look back to an outstanding career: 3 times World Player of the Year, 3 times World Champion, 5 times European Champion, 3 olympic Bronze Medals. In adition to that she won 9 german Championships and 10 times the german Cup. Best female player Germany ever had imo but for her the situation in NT was a bit like the Ballack situation : she´s not really needed in that team any more. Like german football doesnt need Ballack now.

It's sad she didn't get a big chance to do anything at the latest World Cup, but still a great player.
