Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    Germany win at the UEFA European Championship final tournament for the first time since 1996 thanks to a goal in either half from Lukas Podolski. Although Poland did create chances, the result was a just one with Joachim Löw's side the better for the majority of the match. Germany meet Croatia here on Thursday while the other side defeated in Group B today, Austria, are Poland's opponents in Vienna on the same day.
