Germany captain Michael Ballack has offered his full backing to under-fire goalkeeper Jens Lehmann.

The 38-year-old was criticised for his performance in the 2-2 draw with Belarus last Tuesday, although he looked more assured in the 2-1 victory over Serbia in Gelsenkirchen on Saturday.

"There is no discussion about him on the team," said Chelsea midfielder Ballack. "He´s had two more matches to gain playing time now. He is very experienced. We trust him and we stick together."
