Arsenal crock Mertesacker convinced he can make Euros

Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker is convinced being fit for Germany's Euros campaign.

The 26-year-old has made good progress in his rehab from ankle injury and he is certain he will make this summer's tournament in Ukraine and Poland.

"I am very confident because I have spoken to a lot of people in Germany and England - doctors, physios and coaches - and they are all very comfortable with my ankle," he told Arsenal.com.

"I think I am 90-95 per cent fit. For the past four weeks I have been doing quite a lot of rehab at Arsenal and recently some pitch work with the ball and I am very happy to be back in England because I spent quite a bit of time in Germany.

"Now it's time to see the ball, the pitch and the guys again. It's a good feeling that the injury is going fine. I am very happy about it."
