Mueller: Terror threat doesn't faze Germany

Thomas Mueller says the Germany squad remain unfazed by the threat of terrorism, ahead of tomorrow morning's (Singapore time) high-profile friendly against England in Berlin in the wake of the Brussels attacks.

The world champions host Roy Hodgson's Three Lions, with a crowd of around 72,000 expected at Berlin's Olympic Stadium before the Germans play Italy four days later in Munich.

Security will be tight for both games in the wake of Tuesday's bomb attacks on Brussels' airport and metro system which killed 31 people.

"We feel that we are well protected but, of course, anything can always happen," said Mueller. "However, we are convinced the security forces are doing a good job."

Germany were affected by the terror attacks last November in Paris, having had to spend the night in the Stade de France after their 2-0 defeat by the French.

Then, four days later, their home friendly against Holland in Hannover was called off on police advice amid fears of an attack. - AFP.
