Germany striker Miroslav Klose is looking to play in his fourth World Cup finals competition to bring an end to his international career.
"If I keep my health and continue to be effective, the 2014 World Cup will be the end of the career in the national team," he told the weekly Sport Bild.
"My health and my physical strength will determine whether I'll continue to play at club level," the 34-year-old said.
Klose is Germany's second leading goal-scorer with 64 - four short of Gerd Mueller's record - and he can count on the support of coach Joachim Loew to fulfil his predictions.
"I am still counting on Miroslav Klose in the next two years. When he is in his stride, he still ranks among the best attackers in the world," Loew told a news conference in Frankfurt.
"I don't see age being a bar with him," he said, pointing out his strong performances during Euro 2012.
