Gareth Southgate took charge for the first time following his
official oppointment as Three Lions boss, but his side were
unable to break down a stringent Germany backline. 

Lukas Podolski, marking his final game in international
football, struck a second-half winner to secure a narrow 1-0
lead in the Friendly at Signal Iduna Park.

It also marked the eighth consecutive fixture in which
England failed to keep a clean sheet against Germany, and their
third defeat in four meetings between the two sides.

Former Arsenal man Podolski won his 130th cap for his country
and bowed out with a spectactular strike from distance – his
49th of his international career – before leaving the
pitch on 83 minutes to a standing ovation.

Before the game, Podolski told fans: “I want to personally say
thank you for 13 awesome years on & off the pitch. You fans
have played a big part in that.”
