Aston Villa winger Milner: Germany clash biggest game of career

Aston Villa midfielder James Milner says today's clash with Germany will be the biggest game of his career.

Milner also wants revenge for England Under-21s losing the final of the 2009 European Championships to Germany who have included six of that squad in their 23 for South Africa.

Milner said: "Germany is a massive game at whatever level from Under-16s right through to the full squad.

"There is a great occasion and history about the fixture. But those of us involved want to put the record straight for what happened with the Under-21s last summer.

"We were unlucky in the final, things didn't quite go for us, but we also didn't perform as well as we could.

"They were a good team, organised, pretty good going forward, scored a few goals on the break, but they moved the ball around well - as you've also seen in this tournament.

"It will be a tough game but for those of us involved it would be good to get one back on them especially in a World Cup."
