  • What They're Saying

    "I think Germany has shown that they were one of the top teams in the first stage. They won all three games and scored a lot of goals (11). In this case, we know that they’re going to be very offensive, very good. We respect them, but the best way to respect them is attacking when we have the ball and when we don’t have the ball, defending well. We know how to do it, now it’s up to the players to have that concentration during the 90 minutes."
