Four years ago, Bastian Schweinsteiger returned home after the World Cup with a souvenir: the shirt given to him by Frank Lampard after Germany’s 4-1 victory over England.

`I really admire him both as an individual and as a player,` Schweinsteiger told The Guardian last year.

Blood was pouring down his face, but Schweinsteiger still fought to the end.

After completing the historic treble, Schweini Рas everyone affectionately calls him Р from a previous pillar who was unable to help the team claim the title of champion in Europe twice (in 2010 and 2012) officially stepped up to the plate.

Someone asked if he would be the one to keep this shirt?

Schweinsteiger always looks like a warrior, dominating the midfield.

Schweinsteiger encouraged his colleagues after Germany’s victories in this year’s tournament.

`I’m exhausted, I can’t feel my legs anymore,` Schweinsteiger had to say those words after running 15km on the field, more than anyone in this match.

`That day in Berlin the fans gave us so much support, and today is the time for us to repay that love. This championship is the best thing the team can win to win.`

Why are they winning now, after losing in 2006 (World Cup semi-finals), 2008 (Euro finals), 2010 (World Cup semi-finals) and 2012 (Euro semi-finals)?

Schweinsteiger himself also encountered criticism several times, when the German team’s performance was not really excellent.

And Schweinsteiger had to receive bad news again before the 2014 World Cup.

`I want to thank Coach for taking care of my fitness and giving me the opportunity to play in this year’s tournament,` Schweinsteiger said.

So, they finally fulfilled their promise from the 2006 World Cup.
