Lukas Podolski ready to face European champions - and Santi Cazorla
Lukas Podolski and Santi Cazorla may be club team-mates but the German striker is ready to face his Spanish friend in Vigo.
Joachim Low’s reigning World Cup holders face defending European champions Spain in a blockbuster clash on Tuesday night.
And Arsenal have representatives on both sides as Podolski looks to continue his goal-scoring form for Germany from the bench.
Cazorla, meanwhile, doesn’t start for la Roja as Spain look to make amends for a miserable World Cup campaign in Brazil.
And Podolski, whose Arsenal future has been a source of debate in recent weeks, is relishing the ‘friendly’ clash.
Podolski wrote on Instagram: “Matchday, Former World Champions vs New World Champions. Santi vs Poldi ! #worldchampions #heavyweights #laroja #DFB #ESPDEU #LP10”
Spain have won the last three meetings between the sides, including their European championship final triumph in 2008.
