Extra Time: Germany striker Podolski appears in music video

Arsenal new boy collaborates with Cologne based band Brings for specially made track for Euro 2012, joining England teams from down the years to branch out into the music world

Germany striker Lukas Podolskihas proven footballers embarrassing themselves in music videos is not just an English trait by appearing in a specially made song for Euro 2012.

The Arsenal new boy collaborated with Cologne based band Brings, and provided vocals to re-release their 2009 track 'Hallelujah'.

Gunners fans will be hoping his performances on the pitch at the Emirates are a lot better than his singing and dancing moves in the four-minute video.

Podolski approached Brings, who performed a specially made track for the striker's former team FC Koln last season, a month before Euro 2012 began in the hope of reviving the tune.

Busting a move in a move in a white t-shirt and tartan tie, his new band-mates were impressed by his antics on the microphone and in front of the camera and stated that he must have had previous experience.

Brings said: "He must have practised in front of the mirror! We were all a bit worried but he was like a professional.

"He came out and moved well, danced well and seemed like he never did anything else."

The 27-year-old joins England teams from down the years and Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan who've ventured into the musical world, with mixed success.
