Germany takes on Spain in the second World Cup semi-final. The three-time champion Germany surprised the field with an active, aggressive playing style, and will stay in attack mode in Durban.
Germany coach Joachim Loew played down comments made by captain Philipp Lahm, who says he wants to retain the skipper's armband for the rest of the tournament. Loew said offensive style is the reason they are just one game away from the final. He doesn't plan to change anything for the rematch against Euro 2008 rival Spain.
He said, "This is what has brought us success here. Against Argentina and England, we always insisted, even after taking a lead one-nil or two-nil lead, to continue attacking. This is precisely why we have gotten opportunities. It is how we are going to succeed, otherwise, we have no chance against Spain."
