The Germans are considered favourites to top the group while the Socceroos are deemed the underdogs in a pool that also contains Ghana and Serbia.

"We want to be able to embarrass opponents with our playing skills," Low said. "We couldn't have done any more up to this point. That's why my conscience is clear and I have a really good feeling about the tournament.

"The team has been enthusiastic and ready to learn. Now we are just correcting small errors. We are going into the tournament well prepared.''

Low has reason to be upbeat, with Bayern Munich striker Miroslav Klose looking closer to getting his form back. Klose was a surprise selection by Low considering the 32-year-old only mustered three goals all last season.

"He (Klose) told me that he felt a lot better,'' Low said. "He was very agile, quick in his actions in training. "He's slowly getting his form back, and he's getting fresher physically as well. Miro can still be very important to us."
