Michael Ballack´s lung-busting performances for Germany at Euro 2008 can be directly attributed to the Chelsea midfielder´s experience of playing in the Barclays Premier League, according to national team coach Joachim Low.

Statistically, Ballack has been one of the players who has covered the most ground in the European Championship, and his displays have been vital in helping Germany set up a semi-final showdown with Turkey in Basle on Wednesday night.

"Michael Ballack in the past few matches has really run a great deal and in the last two years he has played in the Premier League in the UK and he´s had excellent progress physically - we noticed that when he joined us with the national squad in Germany," said Low.
