Germany forward Lukas Podolski has outlined his side’s aim ahead of their first game against Portugal in the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
The Arsenal man acknowledged the talent of World Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo but also stated firmly why Germany flew to Brazil.
In an interview with FIFA.com, Podolski said:
‘We’ve developed as a team and that’s exactly what we want to show at this World Cup. We’ll go into the match with confidence, conviction and power and we will win it.
‘We cannot forget that they’re ranked fourth in the world. They have Ronaldo and we know that he can decide a game on his own in an instant, or with just a single shot.
‘But if we play well then I think there’s no doubt that we’re capable of winning the game. Our aim is to start off with a victory. That’s why we flew all the way out here.’
Germany play Portugal in their opening game before taking on the Black Stars of Ghana and rounding off the group games with a match against the United States of America.
