Schweinsteiger sets European major-finals appearance record
In Germany's Euro 2016 semi with France, 'Schweini' went clear at the top of the list of World Cup and European Championship games played.
Germany's Euro 2016 semi-final defeat to France saw captain Bastian Schweinsteiger overtake countryman Miroslav Klose as Europe's leading all-time major-tournament appearance maker.
Named as a starter in Die Nationalmannschaft's last-four match-up with the hosts on Thursday, midfielder Schweinsteiger chalked up his 38th game at the finals of a World Cup or European Championship.
