Germany is favorite, Wembley suits us – what the Germans say about England


Team captain Manuel Neuer was in an equally provocative mood when asked about the prospect of Germany raising their game to match Gareth Southgate’s side in London in five days.

“It’s a completely different game. You’ve seen it when we play against stronger teams,” said the Bayern Munich goalkeeper. “We have great guys and we still have confidence, even though we played 2-2 against Hungary. It’s a knockout game, we want to go further. Wembley looks good on us.”

Despite narrowly avoiding an embarrassing defeat and elimination from the competition, Kimmich and Neuer’s optimism for the England clash was echoed across the country at many full-time TV studios.

“I think we are favorites against England,” suggested Michael Ballack on Magenta TV. “They haven’t convinced me yet and they suit us better. In the future, we don’t have to be afraid of them. But of course we need a performance improvement.”

When asked how Germany could improve quickly in the later stages of the tournament, Ballack said: “We should find a formation in which the players feel comfortable and at home. We play. a system that many players in their clubs do not know and are therefore still discovering. “
