We are our own team, we have formed our own way of playing. We don't need to hide from anyone."He named forward pair Antonio Cassano and Mario Balotelli as the chief goal-scoring threats."But our central defenders are prepared for these players," Loew said.Germany's path to the semifinal has seen victories over Portugal, the Netherlands, Denmark and Greece.--IANS/RIA Novostipm
