Lukas Podolski ended his international career on a high note


Lukas Podolski decided to hang up his international playing boots on March 22 of 2017 during Germany´s friendly match against England which concluded with the team of Joachim Low claiming a 1-0 triumph.

The only goal of this friendly match was netted by Lukas Podolski himself as the 32 year old forward scored in his last competitive match at the global stage.

Joachim Low is the head coach of the German national side and he has been in that position since 2006. Even prior to Low´s appointment as the manager of Germany in 2006, he had already been selected as the assistant manager in 2004. This means that Joachim Low has seen and worked alongside Lukas Podolski throughout his entire career in Germany.

“He is a unique specimen; no one can really replace him. For me it will be a beautiful moment but a sad one because he was one of the greatest players ever to come out of Germany´´ (more…)

Lukas Podolski’s international career is over


After making over 100 appearances for Germany and scoring over 40 goals for his national side, it has been officially confirmed that Lukas Podolski has decided to retire as he wants to spend more time with his family and at the age of 31, Podolski is not as energetic as he used to be a few years ago.

The amount of appearances that Lukas Podolski has made for Germany has been decreasing as there are other younger players that have been given the chance to step it up and prove their worth at the international stage.

Podolski is a regular starter for Galatasaray as he made 30 appearances for the Turkish club during the season 2015-16 and it seems like the German forward just wants to spend the rest of his playing career focusing on his club and not having many distractions as well as get more time with his family.

Lukas Podolski confirmed his retirement from Germany as he wrote on his twitter account: Thank you fans! 12 years, 129 matches. It was amazing! It was great! It was an honour to be part of the German national team. (more…)

Lukas Podoloski To Retire


Lukas Podoloski of Germany is probably looking to retire which was announced before the Euros.

Before the Euros 2016 started he stated that he was considering retiring from international football after the tournament which would be an easy decision if Germany won the tournament. Podoloski has definitely contributed much too several games in the international arena. Being a forward player of Galatasaray and 31 years of age, he has made about 129 appearances at senior level for the country as well as being part of the 2014 squad that brought the World Cup back to Germany.

He stayed back from active games for some time. For instance the last match that he played for Die Nationalmannschaft resulted in a win of 4-0 score over Gilbraltar. It was, however, in November 2014. He also scored several goals for Australia last year. For Euro 2016 he made about a single appearance where he was a substitute in the game that resulted in a win over Slovakia with a score of 3-0. Podoloski has been taking a slacked form in the games more and more. Hence, even though Mario Gomez was injured, he was not required to start the semifinal game against France.

Lukas Podolski is not satisfied with his role in Arsenal


Arsenal’s Lukas Podolski made 7 appearances in this season which reached it’s end a few weeks ago and in all of the matches where he played in, the German forward made a total of 0 goals.

One of the reasons of why Podolski’s numbers with Arsenal was so low in this season is because he was loaned out to Inter Milan.

Podolski was loaned out to the Italian side Inter Milan in a transfer that had hopes of reviving the career of Podolski who had and still continues to struggle to score goals on a consistent basis not only for Arsenal but for any club that he joins.

The German forward is 30 year old and his future is uncertain as the player is not a regular starter in Arsenal and Podolski is eager to turn into a performer who could make an impact with his team and have a starting role but in order to do this, he might have to make a move away from the Emirates Stadium.

Bayern Munich reached the semifinals of the DFB-Pokal


Bayern Munich reached the semifinals of the DFB-Pokal after beating Bayer Leverkusen on Wednesday night.

It was a very narrow victory and it was achieved only on penalties. After the match, Bayern superstar Thomas Müller said that there was no danger of fatigue for his team. He did admit that Bayern were lucky to go through this tie. The club, who remain on course to winning yet another league and cup double, have managed to lift this title in the last two seasons. A major challenge was seen in the form of Leverkusen, who have shown signs of brilliance this season.

For long periods of the night, it looked like Leverkusen would make use of the home advantage and get an unlikely victory. The path towards the stage of the competition has so far been relatively easy for Bayern, but they were given a major scare by Leverkusen. It has often been mentioned that luck plays a major role when it comes to victories over penalties, but Müller stated that penalties also requires a lot of practice. Bayern remain in hunt for yet another trophy in the form of the Champions League. The German club will be up against Porto in the quarter finals of the competition. (more…)

Lukas Podolski looking to get back to Inter Milan


Lukas Podolski was looking to start his new chapter at Inter Milan in the best possible way. However, the former Arsenal forward, who is on loan at the club, has struggled for form in the few matches that he has played.

This has led to manager Roberto Mancini publicly criticising him and requesting him to provide more to the team in order to be selected on a regular basis. Podolski has played a little football in the last few years. He was a major £ 10 million signing for Arsenal. Even though his early spell at Arsenal was rich with goals, he has played less than 60 matches in the last two seasons.

The 29-year-old has now failed to score in eight league appearances for the Italian outfit and it will be very difficult for Podolski to hold his first-team spot with such a poor form. Mancini has several other alternatives like Xherdan Shaqiri, who has been a revelation since his permanent move from Bayern Munich in the January transfer window. After recently being voted as the worst signing of last January, Podolski also has a tough road ahead of him in order to win over the fans. Inter suffered their first defeat, after three consecutive victories, in the home match against Fiorentina last weekend. (more…)
