Even footballers get starstruck sometimes.

That appears to be the case for Lukas Podolski at least, as the currently injured Arsenal forward could barely hide his delight as he had his picture taken with the artist formerly known as Hannah Montana, Miley Cyrus, on Saturday.

The pair were in the same place at the same time for a German television show, although Cyrus looks considerably less excited about the whole thing than the man beside her.

Who knows, perhaps she was hoping to meet Mesut Ozil instead. 

Still, Podolski got the picture he was hoping for.

HT to 101 Great Goals for the find.
