Germany sealed their place in the finals of Euro 2008 with a 0-0 draw against the Republic of Ireland on Saturday, and a win at home to the Czech Republic on Wednesday would guarantee them top spot in Group D.

Joachim Low´s side are only three points above the Czech Republic, but victory in midweek would mean they extend that to six with a superior head-to-head record with two games to go. And if the Czechs were hoping that a guaranteed place in the finals will make Germany complacent then they are sorely mistaken.

"Now we can start making plans," Low said, looking ahead to Euro 2008. "But first we have the Czechs on the agenda. We have to do well on Wednesday. A match against the Czechs is always exciting."
