Schweini eyes World Cup glory

Berlin: Bastian Schweinsteiger says he can lead Germany to World Cup glory in 2014.

The Nationalelf have not won a tournament since clinching the European Championship in 1996, but the country`s vice-captain is certain the team can end their title drought next year in Brazil.

"I have the feeling I know how to be able to win titles," the 29-year-old told Kicker.

"The team with the biggest footballing quality do not always win, it takes something other than that as well.

"With Bayern I`ve already won the Champions League, now I want to win the World Cup.

"Fortunately, we still have some time before the tournament starts. However, there`s already a lot of potential in the team, we`re on a good way.

Joachim Low`s men have booked their ticket to Brazil with a 3-0 victory over Ireland on Friday. They will encounter Sweden in the last qualification match on October 15.
