Germany captain Philip Lahm has cautioned his teammates not underestimate the firepower of Ghana at this summerâ€™s FIFA World Cup finals in Brazil.
The three-time World champions will meet the Black Stars in their second Group G clash at Fortaleza on 21 June.
It is a repeat of their Group D clash at the 2010 finals in South Africa where a solitary goal from Mesut Ozil divided the two sides.
Lahm will have his last crack at a chance to win a World Cup with Germany who have buckled at the penultimate stage in recent times
â€œGhana is a strong side with so many world class players,â€ Lahm told FIFA.com
â€œWe have played them in recent times and it took Ozil to make the difference so we have to be at our best to beat them.â€
Germany warmed up for the World Cup with an unconvincing 1-0 win over Chile on Wednesday night.
