Mario Gomez wants to win the Euro 2012 with Germany, hopes to beat Spain on their road to victory
Having qualified for the Euro 2012 by staying unbeaten during the qualifiers and maintaining one-hundred percent record, Mario Gomez has revealed desire of winning the Euro 2012 with Germany. He also wished to beat Spain on their road to victory in the upcoming
The Bayern Munich striker expressed confidence in his team’s abilities and rated them as hot favourites for the upcoming event. He opined that it would not be easy to beat the DFB-Eleven as they have been in sublime form throughout the year and have stayed
He also sent warning signals to the teams like Spain, Netherlands and Uruguay ahead of the competition, following Germany’s outstanding show this year.
Germany defeated the Netherlands this year in their last international fixture after a long wait of 15 years.
The Dutch manager, Robert van Marwijk, also showered praise on Jurgen Klopp’s men after that game and tipped them as one of the strongest contenders for the upcoming Euro competition.
Gomez, on the other hand, ensured that Germany would stick to the same game plan as they did during the whole of 2011 apart from Ukraine’s game, where Low went in with three men at the back. The DFB-Eleven, as a result, conceded three goals during the first
half, prompting Low to return to basics.
While talking to reporters on his team’s chances, the 26-year-old attacker further mentioned:
“No, it also depends on the football you play, and whether it’s attractive or not. That is very important to our coach. He doesn’t want us sneaking into the final. We have enough quality to be contenders for the trophy, but there’s such a lot more to it
than that: form on the day, luck, and all the usual factors.”
“Germany are traditionally a good tournament team, so I’d say the omens are good and we have a chance of competing for the trophy in 2012.” Gomez added.
The former Stuttgart man also wished to beat Spain during the upcoming competition in order to drain the country’s dominance.
The tournament is scheduled to take place in Poland and Ukraine and will officially get underway next year in June.
