Germany forward Lukas Podolski claims there are no guarantees they will qualify from their group at the World Cup this month insisting opponents Ghana will be no pushovers because of their fighting spirit.
The German’s face Portugal, USA and Ghana in Group G – with the mighty clash against Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal up first.
Podolski is set to play a crucial role for his country who go into the tournament in Brazil as the second favourites behind the hosts.
The Gunners man knows the ability of his strong squad but will not be underestimating any team in their group until the games are done.
“I think it’s a tough draw because Portugal have Cristiano Ronaldo and other players who can create a lot of chances to score,” Podolski told Arsenal Player.
“United States have a German coach (Jurgen Klinsmann) so it’s a special game for him. And with Ghana, African teams always fight and keep giving 110 per cent.
“It’s not easy but I think we have a strong team and we want to get out of this group and play a good World Cup. We want to fight for the title.”
