Germany coach Joachim Low is impressed by a revitalised England at the Euros.
The Germans booked their place in the last four at Euro 2012 with a convincing 4-2 win over 2004 champions Greece in Gdansk, and now await the winners of the quarter-final between England and Italy.
"England are much better under Roy Hodgson than in 2010," said Low.
"They are much better organised, they counter-attack fast.
"Roy in a short time, and he is known for this, has really built a good, compact team and got them ready.
"They are not so open any more, they are not as divided as they were in 2010 and they really play well as a team.
"Roy has managed to organise this team very well and they are tactically better than in 2010."
