Published Add your comment

Michael Ballack ended on the losing side in a final again but Germany coach Joachim Low insisted his skipper deserves a winners´ medal for his efforts during Euro 2008.

Ballack, 31, recovered from a calf injury to play against Spain at Vienna´s Ernst Happel Stadium but it was Fernando Torres who settled the clash in Austria´s capital with his strike in the 33rd minute.

But when asked if he deserved a medal, Low replied: "Yes, he does."
