Thomas Hitzlsperger believes Germany will miss Michael Ballack´s leadership qualities and goal threat if the talismanic midfielder is ruled out of Sunday´s Euro 2008 final against Spain.

It is touch and go whether Germany coach Joachim Low will be able to call on his skipper, and Hitzlsperger concedes that losing Ballack would be a blow to the team for a number of different reasons.

"He has proved over the years that he is such an important player, he has scored some important goals in the big games," said the Stuttgart player.
