Sami Khedira believes it is only a matter of time before Mesut Oezil shows his class for Germany at Euro 2012.
Manager Joachim Loew backed the 23-year-old to ‘explode’ in the coming fixtures, and his Real Madrid team-mate is in no doubt he will make an impact sooner rather than later.
“Mesut has taken another step in the past one or two years. We players value him, he works a lot for the team,” Khedira said.
“Now he knows how to create space by running.
“His genius moments will come, simply because he has the quality for that to happen.”
Khedira discussed his understanding with fellow defensive midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger, and feels their good relationship has made Germany a stronger team.
“In 2010, we played only one game together before the World Cup. Since then, two years have gone by and we have played many matches together,” he said.
“We know our respective virtues and to enable the other to capitalise on theirs you yourself take a step back.
“I believe our balance between defending and attacking has become even better and that has probably made us stronger as well.”
