Germany exited the “Group of Death” as the winners and play Algeria in the “Round of 16.” Many have the Germans as heavy favorites in this game, but the Germans don’t necessarily see it that way.
“We’re very focused,” German defender Jerome Boateng said, via FIFA. “It’ll be a difficult match against tough opponents. They have nothing to lose, and we’ve got to be looking only at ourselves. But I’m convinced we’ll hit peak form and go through.”
Germany captain Philipp Lahm had a similar message.
“We’re in the knockout phase – either you deliver or you go home,” said Lahm, via FIFA. “Germany have been world champions three times and there aren’t that many teams who can say that.
“We have had great teams in the past and this squad has great potential, but we have to take it a round at a time and play aggressively. I think we are the better team, but we have to prove that on the pitch.”
