Fairytale farewell...but not for England

Germany's head coach will be hoping to have some of his stars back for Sunday's 2018 World Cup qualifier against Azerbaijan in Baku with his side five points clear in their group.

Fairy tale finish for Podolski "There were a couple of chances in both halves".

Podolski said after the match that it was the flawless end to his illustrious worldwide career.

Pod, who scored his 49th goal on his 130th appearance, said: "England have a good team, a good manager and they now play a different style - before it was a like a rugby style".

Cahill, who was England captain on the night, said the terror attack on Westminster had been on the team's mind before the match. "We win and I score the winning goal", a beaming Podolski told reporters.

Podolski, who won the 2014 World Cup with Germany, will join Japanese side Vissel Kobe after the Turkish season ends in May.

"I decided six weeks ago that I would do it having watched videos of Germany and seeing them live last summer", Southgate said.

"We are going to move on but we have to make sure we learn from last night".

Chicago teen apparently gang-raped on Facebook Live, police say

"Our thoughts are with all of those who have been affected by this awful incident", FA chairman Clarke said just prior to the match against Germany.

"I don't know all the detail because the story was breaking as we were travelling and then preparing for the game", Southgate said. The German goalkeeper needed his post to keep out Adam Lallana's strike but other than those chances England rarely threatened Ter Stegen's goal.

"We asked Glenn [Hoddle] to present Michael Keane with his shirt before the game because we want that connection with the past, and for the player to feel that and also recognise that the past is important for us as well".

Manager Gareth Southgate hands an England debut to Burnley defender Michael Keane in the friendly global with Germany in Dortmund.

"We have a lot of fixtures coming up and he is out for the games against Darmstadt, Mainz and Leverkusen".

The results: Germany 1 (Podolski 69) bt England 0; Czech Republic 3 (Horava 48-pen, Jankto 64, Krmencik 79) bt Lithuania 0; Cyprus 3 (Mytidis 56, Katedaris 62, Christofi 66) bt Kazakhstan 1 (Nuserbajev 29); Scotland 1 (Naismith 35) drew with Canada 1 (Aird 11).

" It took us a while to get used to this and slowly but surely I think our players got used to rhythm".
