Beckenbauer: Germany do not have to fear anyone

Der Kaiser has nothing but praise for Die Mannschaft, following their good performances so far at the tournament, and feels they should not be afraid of any opponent
Franz Beckenbauer has voiced his opinion that Germany have the quality to beat any team at the European Championship.

The Nationalelf impressed with a 4-2 victory over Greece in the quarter-finals, and have now won 15 competitive games in a row as they have set their sights on lifting the Euro 2012 trophy.

"I can hardly see any weak links in the German team. When you've won all your competitive games since the semi-final at the 2010 World Cup, you don't have to fear any opponent," Beckenbauer was quoted as saying by Bild.

"Germany were overwhelming against the Greeks, and could have been 4-0 up at half-time. Their performance was a clear signal towards their rivals for the European title.

"Next up will now be either England or Italy. Although Italy have been our nemesis at big tournaments and defeated us at the 2006 World Cup, things will be different this time around. It doesn't really matter who our next opponents are."

Germany's semi-final against one of England or Italy takes place in Warsaw on June 28.
