Schweinsteiger claims Germany is reaching Spainís class
Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger claims Germany are slowly beginning to show signs of an all-round team, an attribute Spain is well known for. The midfield maestro claims the German squad is in the process nearing perfection to become one of the best sides in the world.
Spain has turned into an unstoppable force in international football over the last decade. La Furia Roja has managed to capture the last three major Championships. Meanwhile, Germany has managed to reach the last four on each of these three occasions, but they have never been able to add silverware to their trophy in recent history.
Bastian Schweinsteiger believes the time if finally ripe for Germany to take Spain head-on. The 28-year-old central midfielder suggests Spain have proved themselves to be a complete team, a team other teams aspire to be.
The Bayern Munich born and bred player claims Germany is finally nearing the peak Spain has reached, something Die Mannschaft will have to prove in the upcoming World Cup.
“Spain have a certain perfection in their game. They have been training on this for the past ten years or so. We are working hard on achieving the same perfection and are well on our way,” Bastian Schweinsteiger said in a news conference.
“It's absolutely no problem for us to be compared to Spain. They have been the best team out there since 2008. It's an honor to be compared to them.”
Bastian Schweinsteiger, who has 97 caps for Germany under his belt, admitted he is excited about making his 100th cap for his country.
“Of course, this is something that's on my mind. It's something very special for me to play for the national team. I am proud to be playing for Germany and I cannot wait for my 100th cap,” Bastian Schweinsteiger added.
Germany are scheduled to play against Kazakhstan in Astana on Friday, 22 March. Four days later it will be Germany who plays host to Kazakhstan.
