The midfielder is adamant his nation has the potential and knowledge to win the tournament in Brazil next year

Bastian Schweinsteiger says he can lead Germany to World Cup glory in 2014.

The Nationalelf have not won a tournament since clinching the European Championship in 1996, but the country's vice-captain is certain the team can end their title drought next year in Brazil.

"I have the feeling I know how to be able to win titles," the 29-year-old told Kicker.

"The team with the biggest footballing quality do not always win, it takes something other than that as well.

"With Bayern I've already won the Champions League, now I want to win the World Cup.

"Fortunately, we still have some time before the tournament starts. However, there's already a lot of potential in the team, we're on a good way.

Joachim Low's men have booked their ticket to Brazil with a 3-0 victory over Ireland on Friday. They will encounter Sweden in the last qualification match on October 15.
