Lahm to present 100,000 euros to Red Cross

11 March 2014, 16:54

Munich - Bayern Munich's German international Philipp Lahm will on Tuesday present a cheque for EUR100,000 ($138,000) on behalf of UEFA to the International Committee of the Red Cross.

"The donation traditionally supports the Red Cross's physical rehabilitation programme for landmine victims and other persons with disabilities in Afghanistan," European football's governing body said in a statement.

Lahm, who received the most votes of any player in a UEFA.com users' Team of the Year poll in 2013, will present the cheque in Munich before the Champions League last 16 second leg tie against Arsenal on Tuesday.

The Gunners need to overcome Bayern's 2-0 first-leg victory at the Emirates Stadium three weeks ago.
