Thomas Muller struck twice as top German club Bayern Munich easily beat India 4-0 in a friendly at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium on Tuesday.

The 22-time Bundesliga champion scored all four in the first half.

Striker Mario Gomez opened in the 14th minute, followed by consecutive goals from forward Thomas Muller in the 29th and 37th. Bastian Schweinsteiger completed the tally two minutes before halftime.

The tie was touted as a farewell game for former India captain Bhaichung Bhutia, who announced his retirement from international football in August.


Bayern last week beat Qatari second-division side Al Sailiya 13-0 in Doha.
