Philipp Lahm wants more from 'unpredictable' Germany

Bayern Munich full-back praises his side's offensive options but calls for stability following Friday's 6-2 victory over Austria
Germany and Bayern Munich captain Philipp Lahm has branded his national team as "unpredictable" following his side's 6-2 victory over Austria in an interview with Germany.

Joachim Low's men were in imperious form going forward against their neighbours on Friday, though they were exposed on more than one occasion at the back, conceding two goals due to suspect defending.

Lahm, who has been the centre of controversy following comment he has made in his book, could not fault his side for their attacking prowess.

"Mario Gotze comes off the bench and scores a goal - we simply have many options on offence. Lukas Podolski also returned to form. Our team at the moment is very unpredictable," the player pointed out.

Meanwhile the Borussia Dortmund youngster Mario Gotze has come out in praise of his national team boss for deploying him in a number 10 role, saying: "He is so right. I feel comfortable there. You have more freedom and are better integrated into the game than on the outside."

The Austria game also saw Lukas Podolski return to scoring ways for the national team, and the Koln winger praised Germany's overall form, saying: "When you have eight wins in eight games, you get a certain self confidence. 

"For example, when you play such a great team like Brazil, your confidence is very high. We just play very good football. And when we reach our full potential, it is very hard to beat us."

Germany's defeat of Austria sealed their qualification for Euro 2012, with fixtures against Turkey and Belgium still to come.
