Last year, Bastian Schweinsteiger was selected as the German Football Ambassador. Who will win this year? Toni Kroos, Per Mertesacker or maybe Dzsenifer Marozsan?
Already a world champion and cult hero, Bastian Schweinsteiger is now also German football ambassador. The Chicago Fire midfielder wins the audience prize, while Miroslav Klose and coach Horst Kriete are also winners.
World Cup winner Miroslav Klose is now at the German FA working on his coaching badges. He spoke to DW about his years abroad and the role football can play in integrating newcomers.
