Berlin: Captain Philipp Lahm has said he is relishing making his 100th appearance for Germany "in his own backyard" for Friday's World Cup qualifier against Austria.

The Bayern Munich right-back will become only the eighth international to bring up the key milestone for the German Football Federation (DFB) and will be doing so on home turf at the Allianz Arena, home of the Bavarian giants.

"It really has come together incredibly well," said Lahm, with Germany five points clear in Group C and the top teams from the nine European groups going through to the World Cup next June in Brazil.
