JOHANNESBURG, July 4 (Xinhua) -- The new generation of Germany team can avenge its loss to Spain in the 2008 European Championship final when the sides meet in the World Cup semifinals on Wednesday, said Miroslav Klose.

German lost a one-sided Euro final 1-0 in Vienna, but Klose said Sunday that the World Cup rematch in Durban will feature "different players, different squads".

"Spain is still ruling supreme in Europe but in terms of quality I think we have improved, big time," Klose said.

Germany scored four goals each to eliminate its old rivals England and Argentina in the knockout-round of the South Africa World Cup.

Klose said that Spain will be the best opponent Germany has faced at this World Cup.

"Spain are not unbeatable, they're not invincible. There is a slight difference in the way they played between 2008 and now." Klose said.
