Andre Schurrle hopes to make Germany starting XI against France

Germany forward Andre Schurrle claims that he is eager to make Joachim Low's starting XI against France in the World Cup quarter-finals on Friday at the Maracana.

Germany forward Andre Schurrle has claimed that he is eager to make Joachim Low's starting XI against France in the World Cup quarter-finals on Friday.

The 23-year-old scored his side's first goal in the second-round clash against Algeria on Monday, which finished 2-1 to the three-time tournament champions, and he admitted that he is "fired up" ahead of the all-European tie at the Maracana.

Schurrle told BBC Sport: "I'd be delighted to have the chance to start on Friday.

"I'm really fired up. I feel good, I feel in form and I'm really glad I finally got the chance to play more in the last match."

Germany are into the last eight for the 17th time in 18 World Cup appearances.
