A friendly against old rivals England will give forward Lukas Podolski a perfect farewell from the German football team. After three World Cups and four European Championship participations, the 31-year-old will appear in a German shirt for the 130th and last time in Dortmund on Wednesday evening.

Poland-born Podolski might not have been one of Germany's top stars but was basically ever-present since first being called up for international duty in June 2004. In his 13-year career, Podolski has won the third most caps for his country and his 48 goals put him third in the goal-scoring list behind Miroslav Klose (71) and Gerd Mueller (68).

The introduction of Mesut Ozil for a hamstrung Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain just before the half hour mark sparked a sluggish Arsenal into action, who got the go ahead goal just before half-time through Theo Walcott, before running away with the game in the second period, handing out a 5-0 thrashing to Lincoln City to motor into the semi-finals of the FA Cup for the 29th time in their history.

After a poor run of games in the last few weeks, Arsenal and their fans both needed lifting, and the visit of National League side Lincoln City, some 87 places behind the Gunners in the English football hierarchy meant an opportunity was there for a beleaguered Arsene Wenger to get the fans back on his side.
