Riether played against Fulham in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Europa League in 2010, before joining Cologne that summer.
Has made two international appearances, making his debut as a second-half substitute in a 2-2 draw against Denmark in August 2010. A month later he made his first start in a Euro 2012 qualifier against Azerbaijan which Germany won 6-1.
