WORLD CUP USA '94 / QUARTERFINALS : Spotlight : WHAT'S THE SECRET?

July 11, 1994|BILL PLASCHKE

As expected, German forward Rudi Voeller announced after the game that he was retiring from the team.

A bit more surprising was the announcement from goalkeeper Bodo Illgner that he was also retiring.

An angry German Coach Vogts expected Illgner to keep the news a secret for now.

"He told me in the cabin (locker room) that he was retiring, but he was only going to tell me and not announce it," Vogts said. "Then I come out of the cabin and he has told the media. That tells me something about somebody's character."
