The German national team is infamously known as the German Machines. In fact every German footballer is known for not getting tired easily. They are likened to machines.
It comes as no surprise when Muller, Bayern Munich forward credited Bayern’s DFB Pokal win over Leverkusen to their untiring and unrelenting characteristic.
Munich made it into the semifinals by beating Leverkusen on penalties. They have been drawn with Dortmund, which will be a repeat of last year’s final.
“When it is about penalties, it is a mixtures of luck and also practice,” Muller told ARD . “A big part of it is luck.
“We sometimes take penalties after training, but I don’t think all the players who shot today do that.
“Being tired is only something in your head. Of course you don’t always feel that fresh, but you have to keep going. We wanted to play and we wanted to win.
“It was a very tight match. I counted a few more chances for us, but Leverkusen were dangerous too. But I think no team could have scored a goal today from open play.”
