Andre Schurrle: 'Germany fully prepared for threat of France'

Andre Schurrle insists that Germany are fully prepared for the players they will face against France on Friday.

Andre Schurrle has insisted that Germany are fully aware of the challenge ahead of them when they face France in the World Cup quarter-finals on Friday.

The Chelsea forward was keen to praise the quality of France's squad at the tournament, but he believes that Joachim Low's side must focus on their own qualities as they look to reach the semi-finals once again.

"France have some fantastic individual players like [Paul] Pogba, [Karim] Benzema and [Mathieu] Valbuena," the 23-year-old told FIFA.com. "They have a lot of quality and can create goals from any situation. We know their strengths, but we also know ours.

"It's a childhood dream to be at a World Cup here in Brazil. Now we've got to show what we're made of against France in the quarter-final."

The winners of the match inside the Maracana will meet either Brazil or Colombia in the semi-finals.
