Podolski captains Germany on farewell against England


"Their ability to adapt quickly to that I thought was excellent".

Let me remind you that at the last big tournament, which took place last summer in France, the German national team as a whole was predictably strong, however, reaching the semifinals, lost to the hosts of the tournament with a score of 0: 2.

"Hopefully that's part of the identity moving forward and we continue to play with that energy".

Right performance, wrong result "I was pleased with the performance". The one bit we missed was the finish.

"It is never nice to lose and I am not someone who is overly pleased in defeat but I have to be really pleased with the way my players have played individually and in terms of the tactical system", Southgate said.

Burnley defender Michael Keane and Southampton duo Nathan Redmond and James Ward-Prowse made their England debuts on the night.

"We played well today, especially first half".

Lukas Podolski believes Wayne Rooney deserves a warm Wembley send off when his England days come to an end.

"We showed as a team in the second half that we still have the quality, even when a few of us are missing".

"We controlled the game and looked composed in possession. I was clear with what we wanted to do".

Southgate did not select him for the Germany game, or Sunday's qualifier in Lithuania, revealing his lack of playing time at Manchester United, and competition from younger legs, were the reasons rather than injury.

"I don't know all the detail because the story was breaking as we were travelling and then preparing for the game", Southgate said. It's something to build on from tonight's game. "It puts football into perspective at a moment like that", he told ITV.

Murray added that he hopes a federal judge will declare the Trump's executive order unconstitutional outright. Numerous non-compliant jails are located in Texas, to the dismay of its Republican Governor Greg Abbott.

"I have seen Germany pin teams back with the system we have played in the past, I didn't want us to be on the back foot and we created the good chances we had".

Lukas Podolski reserved arguably the best goal of his global career for his 130th and final appearance.

Now, goal music might be debated until the cows come home by some fans, but substitution music is certainly a new one for us.

"It was an incredible strike, but from (goalkeeper) Joe Hart's point of view it was pretty unstoppable", admitted Southgate.

"You can't always predict when the end is coming for people but we are trying to acknowledge and recognise our past more".
