Joachim Loew has refused to rule out the possibility of dropping Mario Gomez for Germany’s Euro 2012 clash against the Netherlands.
Despite the Bayern Munich striker netting the only goal in Saturday’s 1-0 win over Portugal, Loew is unsure whether he will name the same starting 11 for Germany’s second Group B game.
“I don’t always say ‘never change a winning team’. It is possible that I will make some changes but I have not decided yet,” he told reporters.
“I am always good for a surprise.”
Many expected talisman Miroslav Klose to start on Saturday, however he had to be content with a substitute experience.
The veteran Lazio striker has been carrying an injury but Loew claimed the 34-year-old may yet return to the starting line-up.
“I am glad that Miro (Klose) is feeling better. When he is fit he is world class,” Loew said.
“He is still missing a few things but he has progressed enough that he could start a match.”
Germany sit joint top of their group with Denmark after both teams registered 1-0 wins against Portugal and Netherlands respectively.
