Schweini: Germany Wants More Trophies

With a World Cup trophy now to his credit, Germany midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger claims he and his team are hungrier than ever before for success.

After Germany claimed a 1-0 victory over Argentina in extra minutes in the tournament final on Sunday in Rio De Janeiro, the 29-year-old noted a bright future on the horizon for his team and credited their mix of youth and experience for the win.

“This will give us hunger now, absolutely. We want to do it again at the next tournament,” Schweinsteiger said.

“The important thing is that the young guys have the experience of this tournament and we will go to France (for Euro 2016) and try and do it again for sure.

“It won't be easy because we have a young team. But we have some players like Philipp Lahm, Mesut Ozil and Per Mertesacker who have the experience.

“This mix makes a big difference.”

Schweinsteiger was forced to leave the pitch momentarily in the final to receive stitches to a cut on his face, though he returned and played out the remainder of the match, claiming Germany’s fourth World Cup final victory.

“We are the first European team to win the title in South America, the first team from Europe so it has been special,” he added.
