Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has praised the attacking talent coming through the Germany national side, singling out Arsenal's Mesut Ozil for acclaim.
The 48-year-old took time to pick out the Gunners playmaker, who has a mammoth 18 assists and five goals to his name this season.
World Cup holders Germany face England in Berlin on Saturday and Klopp believes the "genius" technical skill of Ozil, Marco Reus and Andre Schurrle is great news for the national team.

"We create, we help them developing, play in small spaces, making this, the quick players here," he said, according to the Daily Mail.
"And we took always the tall players like (Andre) Schurrle, (Mesut) Ozil, Marco Reus, they are all six foot or something like this, so a good size for an offensive player."

During his first two seasons at the Emirates Stadium, Ozil was often criticised for disappearing in big games and not making a noteable impact, but towards the end of last team and into this, the midfield maesto has upped his game considerably.
The German has become a pivotal figure in both Arsenal and Germany's side, and Klopp explained how players like Ozil have helped transform the national side's style of play.
However, whilst the Reds manager may be impressed with Die Mannschaft's new generation of technically gifted stars, he also added the national side must not forget about the physical aspects of football, such as heading.
"In Germany, we had a problem a few years ago, it feels really long ago. Everybody said 'good character, good mentality but not the best technicians'. Something like hard football, really physical.
"Now, we have so many, so many, unbelievable skilled players. All of them offensive players, and not one of these can make a header. It is like we forgot it.
"But (if) they were a striker... No header. (They) needed a bit of space, position back and then they could play what they play and they are really, really a genius in their style.
"But if the ball is in the air (mimics them ducking) they are all like this! And you think 'my god we forgot how big headers (are)!"
In typical Klopp style, the eccentric manager also joked about how he rarely asks his players on their opinions in case they don't agree with his own.
"Don't ask your team," he continued. "Don't ask your team something! It is something really rare you get the answer you want. What do you think about this? Oh my god, I asked!"
