Germany defender Christoph Metzelder insists he will be a "giant" at Euro 2008 after admitting his current form is not good enough.

Real Madrid defender Metzelder was named in Joachim Low´s 23-man squad for the summer showpiece in Austria and Switzerland even though he missed four months of the Primera Liga season with a foot injury.

"I have always been criticised before tournaments, but then become a real giant during the finals and things are going in the same direction this time," said Metzelder after Saturday´s 2-1 win over Serbia.
