Unlike Philipp Lahm, Per Mertesacker and Miroslav Klose, who all called it a day after Joachim Low's side lifted the World Cup in Rio de Janeiro, 29-year-old Podolski has not pondered hanging up his international boots.
"I'm still as hungry as ever," said the Arsenal player, who came on as a late substitute as Germany toppled the Scots 2-1 in Dortmund on Sunday night.
He added in Kicker magazine: "My next big goal is the European Championship.
"I still enjoy playing for Germany and it's a pleasure to be part of it all."
