Auf Wiedersehen, Philipp...

JOE would like to consider ourselves as fairly laidback and relaxed people but when it comes to football there is one thing that irritates us. We think the words ; legend, hero and top-class are used all too frequently to describe some players.

In the case of Philipp Lahm though these words are 100% justified.

The World Cup winning captain of Germany has just announced his retirement from the international game and to mark this occasion we have decided to take a look at ten images that best capture his time playing for Die Mannschaft. Enjoy.
