Philipp Lahm is a German professional footballer who plays for and captains both Bayern Munich and the Germany national team. Starting his career at the age of 11, Lahm is now recognized as one of the best full backs in the world. The right-footed player is able to play on both sides of the pitch, and is now mostly playing as a left-wing-back. With superb pace, dribbling and precise tackling abilities, the great assister often helps create goal opportunities for his teammates. He scored the opening goal of the 2006 FIFA World Cup, a beautiful and incredible curling one, clearly remembered by his fans until now.
