Germany has high hopes of ending their winless run against Italy in major tournaments when the two clash in Thursday's Euro 2012 semi-final.
The Germans have failed to beat Italy in seven previous attempts at major tournaments, the most recent being a 2-0 loss after extra-time at the 2006 World Cup. The form shown by Joachim Loew's side at the Euro 2012 matches todat suggests the streak may be about to come to an end.

Since losing to eventual winners Spain in the semi-finals of the 2010 World Cup, Germany have won 15 consecutive competitive fixtures, which include four wins at this year's championships.

The third-ranked side has netted nine goals in Poland and Ukraines.

Germany has Bastian Schweinsteiger and Mesut Oezil who should enable Germany to defeat Italy.

Schweinsteiger insists he feels 100 percent fit.

"I'm very happy and I feel OK," Schweinsteiger said. "I know how to deal with the situation. I'm looking forward to the game, and trying my best to be ready.

"I'm feeling better today. I feel fit enough to start, and I'm really eager to do so. When I say that I feel good, I mean it."

Italian centre back Giorgio Chiellini could make a return on Thursday having missed his nation's quarter-final clash with a hamstring strain.

"I feel better," he said. "We'll see in the next few days but I hope and I think that I can play on Thursday."

To date, Italy have conceded only two goals in four matches and held Spain to a 1-1 draw in their Euro 2012 opening fixture.
