Hitzlbeefburger To Avoid England
Former Villa midfielder Thomas Hitzlbeefburger says that his national team Germany would prefer to avoid England.
Depending on how the two groups finish, Germany could face either England or Sweden in the 2nd round.
Hitzlsperger said: 'If you compare England to us, I think we can safely say we are playing better. They are supposed to be one of the favourites, but have yet to play very well. We are at least on their level. If we did go head to head in the next round, it would be hard.'
'I would prefer to avoid them because, on their day, they are very hard to beat. England have not been convincing yet, but they have many good individuals.'
