"They're a great team. On top of the solidity and spirit that have always characterised German football, they have some players with a South-American touch," he told FIFA.com.
"What's more, they have a settled style of play that's been in place for many years, which they are constantly refining. You could say they are fearsome opponents."
Argentina reached the World Cup final by defeating the Netherlands on penalties in the last four.
