Please stop making unexplained changes to the line-ups for various international football competitions. As far as I can tell, you've not provided any sources for your changes, and in most cases, you're wrong anyway, which I have confirmed from sources I have in my possession. If you have sources, please indicate what they are. If not, please stop making changes without at least explaining yourself in edit summaries. – PeeJay 10:00, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

I can tell you there are many sources in the internet, and many of the sources are more realize than the wordings-sources (like videos), but most of the video sources are illegal, just like the videos posted on YouTube, I think I cannot note the YouTube videos or other videos as the legal sources.
As long as you put the link in the edit summary, that's fine. The problems come when you make unexplained changes to articles that have remained in a certain state for several years, as we have no reason to assume that the articles were wrong in the first place. Just please make sure you tell us where you're getting your info from in future. – PeeJay 10:13, 2 August 2014 (UTC)
Oh, and by the way, I went through my copy of the July 2006 issue of World Soccer magazine yesterday to correct all the line-ups from the 2006 World Cup. World Soccer is an extremely reliable source, so there's no need for you to make any further changes to those pages. – PeeJay 10:15, 2 August 2014 (UTC)
I am not assuming you and the World Soccer mag, but now I post a link in youtube: , you can see Podolski are playing as a forward-libero most of the time of the match, and also, he usually place on the right-side, it is to make Podolski cut into the box and make the high ball assist to Klose.
if we have the official sources approached by FIFA and UEFA, we should use those sources 1st.
If you have official FIFA/UEFA sources, I'd be glad to see them. But that video is certainly not an official source, and I would trust World Soccer over ESPN any day of the week. I appreciate your analysis of Germany's line-up has some merit, but I've not seen any real evidence to support it. – PeeJay 10:40, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

Reply PeeJay2K3: , is this line-ups pictures posted on TV(not the video) are posted by UEFA?
