The Vancouver Whitecaps striker stepped down from international football last week after 69 caps and 18 goals, bowing out with a wonderful strike against the English in London this month, although the Scots ultimately fell to a 3-2 defeat.
And, ahead of playing for his club in the MLS yesterday against LA Galaxy, he said he decided before the Wembley game it would be his last match for his country.
Miller said: "I pretty much came to the decision before playing against England but it's not a bad way to finish off. That last goal's got to be right up there in terms of career highlights. When you're a kid growing up you watch these Scotland-England games and you always dream about playing your part in them. And for me to play in front of 80,000 at Wembley and to score was the stuff that dreams are made of. Unfortunately, it wasn't the winner.
"As much as it was a wrench to make the decision [to quit], we didn't think it was ideal to be going away and missing one or two MLS games. With the World Cup campaign all but over, it was maybe the right time to call it a day."
And the ex-Old Firm striker, 33, insists he had no regrets about his international career despite never having played at a major inter- national tournament for his country.
He said: "It's not a regret because we gave everything we had. I know that nobody can take that away from me in my career - I've given everything I've got for whichever team I've played for and, for me, that's good enough."
His Scottish manager at Vancouver, Martin Rennie, admitted he was pleased at the decision.
Rennie said: "I think it's a wise move that can help his career with us, prolong it and it's definitely a boost for us going into the last 10 games of the season. It means that going into international games - and there's quite a few over the next couple of months - Kenny's going to be here. Not only that, but he's not going to be travelling back from international games. I've always felt that it's a dilemma whether to play him or not when he comes back from international duty."
However, Miller had little sympathy for Falkirk fan Ryan Pearson, who insisted he would get a tattoo with the words "Kenny Miller goal machine" on his backside if the striker found the net against England. Miller duly obliged and the 20-year-old had to keep his word. Asked if he had heard of Pearson's misfortune, Miller laughed: "Who hasn't? He made a stupid statement and it came back to bite him on the bum."
Meanwhile, Scotland could play the USA at Hampden in November. The Americans defeated the Scots 5-1 last year in a Florida friendly that was one of Craig Levein's worst days as Scotland manager. But Scotland have promised a return match and could face the USA on November 11 or 15.
The Americans were last at Hampden in November 2005 when Andy Webster cancelled out a Josh Wolff goal in a 1-1 draw for Walter Smith's side. Their only other visit to Glasgow was in 1952 when they were beaten 6-0, including a hat-trick from Lawrie Reilly and a double from Ian McMillan.
