“Italy is a very good team, but we can beat them. We came here to win a European title. I am confident we will succeed,” said Ozil as reported by Football Italia.
The last time Germany met with Italy is the semi-finals of the 2006 World Cup. When the Germans who acted as the host humiliated Italy 2-0 and have to settle for a third title.
“The past is not our concern. Difference from 2006 is now much more consistent and we can beat any team stronger. Since 2010 we also continued to grow and become much better,” said Ozil.
