Giovani dos Santos and Mexico face Germany in Confederations Cup semis

Doctors pause mid-surgery to watch game-winning soccer play Fred warns Chile and Germany - A lot can happen in a year

"Sometimes the players do it after training on their own, but it is not something I ask them to do during the session".

"That must be reviewed and sorted out, because in one year's time, when the World Cup is here, teams should not be stuck in traffic".

John Sutcliffe says there's plenty of lineup decisions to be made with Mexico's depleted squad as they prepare to face Germany.

Mexico head coach Juan Carlos Osorio found a novel way of explaining the potential gulf between his players and Germany's in Thursday's Confederations Cup semi-final.

"You know which players have missed one before and that also gives you an idea as to who might take one".

"Even if we have never played together before, a lot of things are already working well".

Mexico face Germany at Sochi's Fisht Stadium on Thursday and the ex-Manchester United favourite will be a familiar face for numerous opposition, having plied his trade in the Bundesliga with Bayer Leverkusen for the past two seasons.

Australia score late tries to see off Italy
Sefanaia Naivalu swept in to score followed by a quickfire brace from Israel Folau, with Michele Campagnaro responding for Italy. The Wallabies players return to Super Rugby next month for the final two rounds of the regular season.

Hernandez is adamant that Mexico's best quality so far in the Confederations Cup has been the squad's strength in depth and is desperate to start in any position against Germany at Fisht Stadium.

"No one overseas wants our players", Lovchev said.

"I am going harder into the challenge - it's developing me as a player and a person". We take a closer look at the tournament's team of two halves. "It'll be a very nice game".

The players were laughing and playfully punching each other as they warmed up under the watchful eye of Coach Juan Carsol Osorio. "What really matters is how much experience they have although they are young", Osorio said.

At the world champions' team hotel in Sochi, Low and his players lapped up the spectacle.

Joachim Low has claimed that the secret of Germany's dominance of penalty shootouts is to not to waste time practising them in the first place. "They have a certain playing style and really, they set out to hunt the ball and their technical preparation is sharp". He's already seen them advance to the semi-finals, where worldwide power Germany awaits; if they beat the Germans and then the victor of the other semi-final between Portugal and Chile, the spending of his life savings will surely be well spent in the eyes of El Tri's most cunning and devoted fan.
