Germany 1-0 England: Retiring Podolski signs off with screamer!


Lukas Podolski brought the curtain down on a glittering international career with a left-foot rocket into the top corner to win the game for Germany against old foes England in an international friendly on Wednesday night.The 31-year-old retired from international football at the end of the match, and he added a memorable final chapter to his 130 caps with a brilliant strike from around 25-yards out.The result was perhaps harsh on the visitors who had troubled the reigning world champions with Adam Lallana hitting the post and Dele Alli forcing a good stop from Marc-Andre Ter Stergen.But the night was always going to be about Podolski and he delivered with the spectacular match-winner.
