Philipp Lahm insists Germany will be ready for the Euro 2012 despite struggling to break down Israel in their last warm-up game.
A 2-0 win in Leipzig was at least Germany's first win this year after defeats to France and, last weekend, Switzerland, but there is still plenty of room for improvement for one of the favourites for the title in Poland and Ukraine.
Joachim Low's side are one of the favourites to win the tournament in Poland and Ukraine this summer after finishing runner-up to Spain four years ago and coming third at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
The three-time winners of the competition take on Portugal in their opening game on June 9th in Lviv.
"We now have a week to prepare and we will do that," he said.
"I think it is normal that not everything is working perfectly, but in the past we have always managed to get top fit for the start of a tournament.
"We have sensational quality and the important thing is that we are wide awake and that we beat Portugal, and that would be a good start."
Low was also not getting carried away with the victory, which was to be expected against a nation ranked 58 in the world.
"We still have a bit of work to do," he told Germany's ARD television.
"Not everything is working right yet and we have got to get better, but I think the win does us good.
"The tempo will be higher at the Euros and we wasted some big chances, and things like that can be decisive in big games, so we have to improve."
