Germany midfielder Torsten Frings said Saturday he had never feared that an injury-plagued season would force him to miss out on Euro-2008.

A knee problem has seen Werder Bremen star Frings struggle to get ready for the tournament but he said he had always been sure he would make it.

“This season physically I trained very harder than ever,” Frings said at the German base camp in the Swiss town of Tenero.

“I know if I am on form I will be in the German team. This season I didn't have much luck with injuries but it was clear once I put together a run of games at the end of the campaign that I would be ready,” said the 31-year-old.

Frings, who has scored ten times in 72 games for his country, missed the start of the season, then came back after the winter break only to have to miss two further months.

In all he made only 11 league appearances but insisted that “I feel in good form, I am physically fresh.

“Many of us have bene injured this season and we will see if it's an advantage to be fresher having had those forced breaks,” he said, referring to similar woes experienced by squadmates Michael Ballack and Christoph Metzelder.

Germany take on neighbours Poland on Sunday in Klagenfurt, Austria, and will also meet Croatia and Austria in Group B.

    Please le boss forget about this player. He’s a very good one, but after reading about his injury problems it makes one think will we be getting another RVP, Rosisky, Lundburg etc all good players but usually when they miss a game or 2 they come back ,play one or two then they’re out for another 2 or 3 months, Freddie Flintoff at cricket is the same, other names Saha Man Utd, Anderton ex Spurs, and i’m sure many of you out there can name plenty more. Don’t get me wrong they are all very good players and it’s not their fault that they get injured, but it’s not very good for the clubs involved because it creates instability. So please Arsne! DON’T SIGN THIS PLAYER!!!!!
