On an emotional night for the entire German footballing sphere, Schweini did his damnedest to stave off the waterworks, but it didn’t take long for the dam to burst…

Here’s a bevvy of photos of the night’s festivities (Germany won 2-0, for the record) for you to be going on with…

    at the beginning, the home world cup 2006 i was not a fan of him. maybe coz of that blonde dyed hair plus as a bayern player, he seemed all but sympathic. he kept steadily growing as a player and as a person, became a true skipper. his appearence in the wc 2014 final – gladiator like. and finally he married a classy sports lady with ana ivanovic. big ups for that! best wishes to the man
