Defender Christoph Metzelder does not feel Germany ever managed to find top gear during Euro 2008 and is hoping for an improved showing in the World Cup in two years´ time.

Although they reached a record sixth European Championship final, Germany lost to Croatia during the group stages, were hugely fortunate to get past Turkey in the semi-finals and were then beaten by Spain in Sunday´s final.

"We still have a very young team and I don´t think that in this tournament we were able to show the quality that we did in 2006 and qualification," said the Real Madrid defender.
