Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Marco Reus has expressed his desire to make an impact at Euro 2012, having yet to appear for Germany.

Reus, 23, will make a high-profile switch to Bundesliga champions Borussia Dortmund this summer after the championship, following an 18-goal season in 2011-12.

"I have not yet had my chance, which is disappointing," he told Kicker. "But I have to accept the coach's decision. But this is easier said than done. It is very difficult to deal with it because I am not used to this feeling.

"In football, everything happens so fast. You just have to wait for your chance and make the most of it. I am 23, so I am not that young anymore. We have many young players in our team. I can play in all attacking positions. I am ready to play. I hope I will get my chance.”

Germany will face Greece on Friday for a place in the semi-final of the European Championship with Reus set to take his place amongst the substitutes.
