Germany's Lukas Podolski let his 8-year old take penalty kicks after winning the World Cup

Monday July 14th, 2014

After winning the World Cup, German forward Lukas Podolski gave his eight-year old son an experience he will likely never forget, letting him try a few penalty kicks on the field at the famed Maracanã Stadium.

As adorable as the video is, Germany fans should be happy Podolski was never in goal, because he misses an easy save on his son. It is almost like he is trying to let him score.
