Franz Beckenbauer believes Germany have the quality to beat any team at Euro 2012.

Joachim Loew’s men impressed with a 4-2 victory over Greece in the quarter-finals, and have now won 15 competitive games in a row as they have set their sights on lifting the European Championship trophy.

“I can hardly see any weak links in the German team. When you’ve won all your competitive games since the semi-final at the 2010 World Cup, you don’t have to fear any opponent,” Beckenbauer told Bild.

“Germany were overwhelming against the Greeks, and could have been 4-0 up at half-time. Their performance was a clear signal towards their rivals for the European title.

“Next up will now be either England or Italy. Although Italy have been our nemesis at big tournaments and defeated us at the 2006 World Cup, things will be different this time around.

“It doesn’t really matter who our next opponents are.”

Germany’s semi-final against either England or Italy takes place in Warsaw on June 28.
