Forget the favourites tag, says Gomez

Striker Mario Gomez brushed off the growing Gomez-mania building up back home and insisted Germany still have much to do if they are to confirm their status as one of the tournament favourites.

"We have the chance to watch German television, we have a good supply of newspaper, I'm getting text messages and SMS messages, which is nice," said Gomez, who has scored all three of Germany's goals in their opening two victories.

"But it shows once again that there only seems to be black or white in this game.

"The aim is for us to be European champions, not for me to be the top scorer.

"The situation is anything but rosy, we haven't won anything yet, we have created a good starting point, but we are nowhere near the quarter-finals.
