Hamann lays German success at feet of Schweinsteiger

Former German international midfielder Dietmar Hamann believes that Bastian Schweinsteiger holds the key to any success Joachim Low’s side want at the European Championships.

The Mannschaft have begun their campaign well with two victories from their first two games and go into the final group game against Denmark knowing a draw will be enough to see them progress to the quarter-finals. There is plenty of optimism surrounding the current German squad, who have impressed in the tournament, and Hamann is looking to the midfield to bring them their first success since Euro ’96.

With attacking talent such as Mesut Ozil, Mario Gotze and Toni Kroos, Germany now have a flair which Hamann believes has been missing for ‘the past 15 years’. Schweinsteiger has been nicknamed ‘The Brain’ by Low and Hamann believes his role is pivotal in any prospective German victory.

Hamann said: “I think it will be very important for Schewinsteiger to be on top form, because he can be the one who dictates the pace in the middle of the park. He’s been out for quite some time and he’ll be a major player if they want to be successful in the tournament.”
