"Unleash our potential"
DFB coach Michael Prus: "Our anticipation ahead of the European Championships is massive. We want to unleash our existing potential and test our wares against the best national teams from the year of birth 2001. I think we have a wonderful team together – the lads have all pulled together and are completely committed. We indeed have a couple of individual players who really stick out, but it’s the team unit that gives us our greatest chance at this championship finals in England."
