Published Add your comment

Germany captain Michael Ballack admits the defeat to Croatia was a wake-up call for his side as they look to make their mark on Euro 2008.

One of the pre-tournament favourites, Germany were outplayed by the Croatians last Thursday as they slipped to a 2-1 loss in Group B. Joachim Low´s men travelled to Vienna on Sunday ahead of their decisive clash with Austria on Monday.

"Everybody is a bit tense after this loss, which is normal," said the Chelsea midfielder.
