Mario Gotze: 'We could have scored more against Portugal'

Germany midfielder Mario Gotze believes that his team should have scored more than four goals in their comfortable victory over Portugal.

Germany midfielder Mario Gotze has encouraged his team to show a greater killer instinct in front of goal when they face Ghana on Saturday evening.

A hat-trick from Thomas Muller helped Germany record a 4-0 triumph over Portugal on Monday evening, but despite the wide margin of victory, Gotze has insisted that they should have netted more goals.

The 22-year-old told Kicker: "We could, in some situations, have got more goals against Portugal.

"The result was pretty good, but in the first half, we got a penalty and the red card played into our hands."

Germany will all but secure their place in the last 16 if they can overcome the African nation.
