Lukas Podolski hit a wonder strike to seal a 1-0 win over England
England had had the better of the game with Dele Alli and Adam Lallana going close in the first half, before Podolski’s moment of magic.

And he smashed in his 49th goal on his 131st cap.
Lukas Podolski's strike killed England's hopes after a strong start to the game
