Our German stars believe England will beat Greece in Saturday's crucial final qualifier to book their place in next summer's finals.
Germany can only hope for a slip up but they face the tough test of overcoming Finland on Saturday as well.
Wing-back Christian, a revelation at Spurs since joining in the summer, hopes to return to the starting line-up after sitting on the bench in the German's 5-1 hammering by England last month.

He conceded: "I don't think England will give us a chance to come back.
"That means England will win the last game at home but we have to try and win our final game as well. You never know in football. Maybe if England draw and if we don't win it would be even worse."
Midfield marauder Steffen, a member of the German squad that won Euro96 on English soil, added: "I think England will beat Greece but I hope all the English players believe that as well and only get a draw!
"As a footballer and a German, I'm honest, I think England won the group in Germany.
"I think it will be more difficult for Germany to beat Finland than for England to beat Greece.
"The England team will be so confident. They must believe they will beat Greece and then that's it.
"After beating Germany as well it will be a special feeling for England. That's what I think will happen."
Christian Ziege and Steffen Freund have thrown in the towel on Germany's chances of making the World Cup Finals.
