Ozil: Germany won't play for a draw

Jurgen Klinsmann and Joachim Low are set to meet in the final match of Group G and have thrown any notion of settling for a tie out the window. A draw would see both the United States and Germany through to the round of 16.

RECIFE, Brazil -- Germany need only a tie against the United States to advance to the second round when the two teams meet in their Group G finale on Thursday (Noon ET, ESPN/WatchESPN), but Die Nationalmannschaft midfielder Mesut Ozil says his side is going to beat the Americans at Arena Pernambuco.

- Muller: Germany must be very cautious
- Vogts: Germany should thank Klinsmann
- Honigstein: Germans have no word for draw
- Carlisle: Bradley at fault, not to blame
- Davis: Heartbroken U.S. must remain positive
- McIntyre: U.S. preps for special match
- How U.S. can qualify for last 16

"As a player, we don't play for a draw," Ozil, of English club Arsenal, said Wednesday at Germany's pre-match news conference. "Our objective out on the pitch is to do the utmost to win, and that's what we're going to do against the United States. We want to [finish] first in the group, and that's why we're going to win."

Germany coach Joachim Low suggested that the key to beating the Americans could come down to matching their fitness.

"The starting point is that we have to be very well prepared in physical terms," Low said. "They have this aggressiveness that we saw in the two games [against Ghana and Portugal], they're very well-prepared, they're very fit, and they have an advantage that their league doesn't last 11 months."

The last point is particularly interesting.

U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann has often said that Major League Soccer's shorter schedule, which runs from March to December, puts American-based players at a disadvantage compared to their counterparts who play for clubs in Europe, which typically operate between August and May.

However, Low said the fact that Klinsmann was able to work with many of his players -- nine of whom made the final 23-man roster for Brazil -- during a month-long training camp in January has helped the Yanks during the tournament.

"Jurgen already had his team ready in January, and they were working together since then," Low said. "That's why they are at an excellent physical level."

Still, Low -- Klinsmann's former assistant coach with the German team -- believes that his team will win.

"Our players know our opponents," he said. "We know exactly which are the weak points and the strong points of the [U.S.] squad but what's decisive is for us to take advantage of our opportunities and our qualities. If we can do this, we will win."
