Philipp Lahm calls on his Germany teammates to "deliver" during their last-16 encounter with Algeria at the World Cup.

Germany captain Philipp Lahm has called on his teammates to "deliver" during their second-round match with Algeria at the World Cup.

The three-time champions return to action in Porto Alegre tonight (Monday) having finished at the top of Group G with two wins and a draw.

While claiming that Germany are better than Algeria, Lahm wants his side to prove it this evening.

"We're in the knockout phase - either you deliver or you go home," the 30-year-old told FIFA.com. "Germany have been world champions three times and there aren't that many teams who can say that.

"We have had great teams in the past and this squad has great potential, but we have to take it a round at a time and play aggressively. I think we are the better team, but we have to prove that on the pitch."

Germany reached the semi-finals of the 2010 World Cup before losing to eventual champions Spain.
