Fairytale farewell...but not for England

Southgate calls for positive England support after deplorable chants in Germany

What's next? "We have a qualifier at Wembley [against Lithuania on Sunday] so we are always excited by that, we are looking forward to putting on a good performance for our fans at home".

Podolski's victor against England was the 49th of his global career.

And while football fans tend to have short memories, his goal on Wednesday will ensure he is remembered for some time to come.

Speaking after the game, the Galatasaray striker revealed the England number one had complimented him on his finish, saying: "It was a f**king brilliant shot - wonderful!"

Liverpool's Lallana struck the post while Spurs' in-form midfielder Alli saw his one-on-one effort well saved by Marc-Andre ter Stegen as Southgate's side dominated the opening period, only for Podolski to strike an unstoppable effort past Joe Hart in his final game for Germany to secure the win.

"I don't know if it's traditional in England to give someone a farewell game, but when I am England boss or the president I will say: 'Wayne, next week you've got a game, '" said Podolski.

It was the 31-year-old's 49th worldwide goal, leaving him behind only Miroslav Klose and Gerd Muller in Germany's all-time list, and the captain for the evening saved one of the best for last to leave Hart no chance.

"From the atmosphere in the stadium you could see the connection I have with people from Cologne". I didn't ask the guys with Germany because Arsenal and Arsene Wenger have to make the decision.

The visitors enjoyed an encouraging start to the encounter with Adam Lallana and Dele Alli seeing a lot of the ball, although chances were hard to come by.

Southgate also got the chance to give Michael Keane his chance on the worldwide stage, and the young defender did not disappoint. 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", said Southgate.

Germany head coach Joachim Loew said: "I am very happy for Lukas". He has played for the under-21s at full-back and centre-back so the system was going to suit him, no problem.

"When they go to a tournament they are always nervous, they always play too much under pressure".

"We've also got some intelligent footballers in there, and it's pleasing for me, because I think we needed that ability, and we showed it". The match was an worldwide friendly that took place in Dortmund.

If it was slightly peculiar to see Germany looking so susceptible on their own ground, it was worth noting that Joachim Löw's team quickly gave the impression they meant to address the match at three-quarter pace and would be grateful if their opponents did likewise.

"That wasn't a goal they gifted to us".
