Podolski: Germany will bounce back

 

Lukas Podolski has said Germany will bounce back from their 5-3 defeat to Switzerland when they play Portugal in their first Euro 2012 group game on June 9.

Podolski admitted the result was “not on”, but said the absence of the eight Bayern Munich players in Joachim Low's preliminary 27-man squad – rested after the club’s Champions League final defeat to Chelsea – had made a difference.

“There is no doubt that with the eight Bayern players here the quality improves," he said. “They are top guys and we have missed them."

The striker, who recently joined Arsenal, urged supporters not to read too much into the Switzerland result, telling the German Football Association website: “It has been the same in previous years ... when we lost 4-1 to Italy [in 2006].

“Of course defeats like this shouldn't happen, and they hurt - and losing 5-3 to Switzerland is definitely not on - but I can promise there will be a different team on the field [against Portugal].”

Podolski said Germany had to “live with the criticism” that followed the result, adding: “We are all focusing on Portugal and have got to be fit for that game - and we will be fit.”

He said players had had the chance to clear their heads when squad members went to the Monaco Grand Prix on Sunday, explaining: “I enjoyed it and the lads enjoyed it too, but now we are focusing on the Euros.”
