font size    

German striker Miroslav Klose said Tuesday that the team will fight to win the third place of the World Cup.

After the 2-0 loss to Italy, Germany, who had collected three World Cup titles, had to travel to Stuttgart for the third-place playoff on July 8 against the loser of France-Portugal duel.

Klose currently leads the race for the World Cup golden boot with five goals.

He said that Germany have a bright future on the international stage.

"I think we can be proud of this team," said the striker.

"We have a lot of young players and I think we have a future. Both sides had shots on goal and chances to win it.

"Compliments to the Italians, they took advantage of their fast breaks. But now we want to win the game for third place." he said.
