German international Lukas Poldolski has said that Euro 2012 is his country's turn for glory.

The 26-year-old believes that the three-time winners have endured enough heartbreak after losing out to Spain in the last two tournaments.

"It is our turn. We lost the Euro 2008 final against Spain. Then they beat us in the [World Cup] semi-final in 2010," said the forward, who has 95 caps.

"So I think 2012 it is about time, we are ready. If you consider how we played throughout the qualification everything is set for the title. We will give our best to reach the final."

Germany have been drawn in the same group as the Netherlands, Portugal and Denmark.
