Lukas Podolski has defended Germany coach Joachim Low’s “scratch and sniff” antics on Sunday.
Low, 56, was caught sniffing his hand after appearing to scratch his genitals during the 2-0 win over Ukraine, but according to the former Arsenal striker his behaviour was nothing out of the ordinary.
Television replays and the whole of Twitter captured the Germany boss putting his hand down the front of his trousers, before he sat down on the bench and sniffed his fingers.

“It’s nothing special,” said Podolski at Germany’s press conference.
“I think 80% of you scratch your nuts sometimes!”
