Arsenal star Lukas Podolski hopes Germany can emulate their 6-1 victory over the Republic of Ireland in their FIFA World Cup 2014 qualification game at RheinEnergieStadion.
Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski may be out of action due to a hamstring injury, but took time during the international break to visit his nation of Germany and wish his country luck in their FIFA World Cup 2014 qualification match against the Republic of Ireland.
The Gunners star perhaps needn’t have bothered.
In the reverse fixture at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin, Ireland were humbled 1-6 by a dominant German side, and ought to be confident with home advantage.
The two teams meet tonight at the RheinEnergieStadion in Podolski’s hometown of Cologne.
