This image of Lukas Podolski was used in a recent Breitbart story.

Conservative website Breitbart has apologised for mistaking retired Germany international Lukas Podolski for a travelling migrant in a recent story.

Podolski, who now plays for J-League side Vissel Kobe, was pictured riding a Jet-Ski in an article entitled "Spanish Police Crack Gang Moving Migrants on Jet-Skis."

However, the photo of the former Arsenal forward was taken during the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, near Germany's Campo Bahia training base.

Bayern's Mats Hummels joins Juan Mata in pledging wage to charity

Brian McBride questions whether or not Mourinho is making the right move to hold off on any additional Man United signings.

Bayern Munich defender Mats Hummels has joined Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata in giving part of his salary to charity.

Earlier this month, Mata became the first footballer to join Common Goal, a collective fund that supports football charities around the world. 

Mata also urged his fellow professionals to do the same, and it prompted Hummels to make the pledge after seeing...

Brazil pass Germany in FIFA rankings; Switzerland, Poland in top five

Michael Ballack calls on Germany's young players to step up and replace the team's retired stars ahead of the World Cup.

Brazil are back on top of the FIFA rankings, replacing World Cup holders Germany.

Brazil haven't played a game since June, while Germany were last in action a month ago when they beat Chile to collect the Confederations Cup in Russia.

The FIFA rankings are based on results over a four-year period.

Argentina retained third place, Switzerland rose to fourth -- their highest position since the first rankings 24 years go -- and Poland moved into an all-time best fifth.

The United States climbed nine...

ESPN FC's Jason Dasey and Dez Corkhill discuss their early impressions of Lukas Podolski at Japanese side, Vissel Kobe.
Lukas Podolski struck twice on his J-League debut as Vissel Kobe eased to victory over Omiya Ardija.

Lukas Podolski has started his Japanese career with a bang. If the German forward continues in the same vein, the J.League is going to have its biggest star since its heady heyday of the 1990s.

With the Chinese Super League hogging the global headlines with its world-famous recruits, Podoski hit back for Japan on his debut last weekend.

Fans had been waiting for months for the ex-FC Koln junior to arrive, and it was worth it. As he finally turned out for Vissel Kobe, he scored twice, with both goals...

Miroslav Klose in Singapore 2017
Miroslav says Asian preseason tours should be viewed as a blessing and not a burden.

Bayern Munich legend Miroslav Klose insists that preseason tours to distant destinations are more than a promotional exercise, and should be no barrier to success in the modern game.

The top scorer of all time in World Cup finals believes there is much to be gained through team bonding, and suggests that past experience proves that matches on the other side of the world should not harm performance levels.

His comments come as Bayern hit back at Bundesliga rivals RB Leipzig who said they preferred...
