Move over Cilla Black, there is a new matchmaker in town.

A couple met through commenting on the Facebook page of Lukas Podolski, the Arsenal forward on loan at Inter Milan, and are now getting married.

On Valentine's Day, the German striker received a message from a Brazilian woman saying that she had met a German man through his Facebook page back in November, and now they are getting hitched. The message read:"Thank you Lukas Podolski because maybe if you didn't post that message I would never have met the man of my life!"

Read the full  message, which Podolski posted on his Instagram page, below:

Podolski added the caption to the picture: "I'm glad for being the Cupid of this beautiful relationship, I wish you two lots happiness, joy and longevity. Enjoy your love for the rest of your lives. All the best #Cupid #LoveStory."

The German international has not had the same success for Inter Milan on the pitch since joining the Italians on loan in January, however, failing to score in his seven appearances for them.
