Germany boss Joachim Low has been delighted with his young team as they bid to beat Mexico and reach the Confederations Cup final.
The world champions – who are unbeaten in 13 games – left a lot of key players at home, naming a youthful squad for the tournament in Russia.
They finished top of a group containing Chile, who await the winners in Sunday’s final in St Petersburg.
“I’m really happy to be in the semi-final with this side,” Low said.
“Our main aim is always to be one of the last four teams in any competition. And you couldn’t necessarily expect that from this team.
“It’s nice that the team is bonding, because the players are spending time with each other off the pitch too.
“They’re incredibly happy to be here. Not a single player is seeking to be in the spotlight – instead they all want to succeed as a team.”
