Klose gets support from Germany team-mates

Misfiring Germany striker Miroslav Klose has been backed to recover from his goalscoring drought by his international team-mates.

Klose, top scorer at the 2006 World Cup in his homeland, has struggled in front of goal in 2008, netting just seven times for club and country.

It is a run that has seen the Bayern Munich hitman's place in the national team come under scrutiny by sections of the German media, but Klose's Germany team-mates Piotr Trochowski and Philipp Lahm insist it is too early to write him off just yet.

'He may not be scoring now, but some players work more for the team even when they are not scoring,' said Hamburg forward Trochowski.

'Things are not all that bad with Miro. He is providing lots of passes and making room for other players with his runs.

'The important thing is he remains relaxed and soon the goals will start raining in.'

Klose's Bayern team-mate Lahm added: 'Of course a striker needs goals, but a lot of strikers have had a so-called crisis in the past and that just seems to be affecting Miro at the moment, but I am convinced he will pull out of it.'

Klose also appears to have the unswerving support of Germany coach Joachim Low, who made the 30-year-old his captain for Saturday's World Cup qualifier against Liechtenstein. Klose should wear the armband again in Finland on Wednesday.
