"Impressive, impervious, imperious”. “The brain”. “A fiercely committed winner, tactically astute and with the physical capacity to dictate games all day long”. “A manager’s dream”. “A heartbeat to the midfield, a rock, a warrior and a deserved champion”. “Germany’s ultimate field warrior”. “A gladiator of the Allianz Arena and a conductor of the German machine”. “Indestructible, indefatigable”. “The heart and the pulse”. “A full-blown national hero”. “The majestic and the great”. “The Chosen One”."F u ß b a l l g o t t".
“Bastian Schweinsteiger has already won more than a century of caps for one of the strongest nations around and has now secured the World Cup itself. Add that to his seven league titles, numerous domestic cup trophies and a Champions League winners’ medal and his haul stacks up impressively against many of the best players to have played the sport. A fiercely committed winner, tactically astute and with the physical capacity to dictate games all day long, he is a manager’s dream and provides a perfect balance for a whole host of team-mates. The World Cup, and especially the final, is often said to separate the majestic and the great from the true echelons of world class. After a performance to rank alongside any which came before him in such a spectacular setting, Schweinsteiger can now be comfortably held in the same esteem as midfield legends from his own nation—such as Lothar Matthaus or Franz Beckenbauer—or even beyond, on the global stage.
Bastian Schweinsteiger, a true legend of the game. ”
Die Förderer von einst: Werner Kern, ehemaliger Nachwuchschef, und Hermann Hummels, ehemaliger Jugendtrainer der Bayern, haben den Weg von Philipp Lahm vom Talent zum Nationalmannschaftskapitän gefördert und begleitet.
Hermann Hummels, der Vater von Mats und Jonas, über Philipp Lahm (und achtet mal darauf, welche Trikots da bei ihm herumhängen ;))
Is it in Karimun Jawa? I heard that Sami is there. I hope he is. Just FYI Karimun Jawa is one of many amazing places to visit in Indonesia which is my country and it’s interesting to try new experiences 😃😉🐠🐚🌊☀🏊🏄🔝
I’m kind of shocked that Philipp Lahm has decided to retire from the German National team, but he goes out on top — he goes out a legend. For those not too familiar with world footy, Lahm is the best fullback in the world, and has been for some time (some have suggested he’s the best fullback of all-time). He’s operated with such poise, grace, positional brilliance, and flawless decision-making for as long as I can remember. What a brilliant leader. I’ll never forget what he’s done for German soccer. Cheers forever to The Captain.
