Bayern Munich midfielder, and rates the Real Madrid man highly.
The last time won a major trophy was in 1996, the Mannschaft lifted the Euro 1996 trophy some 16 years ago. They have come close to ending their barren spell but always get edged out when they are agonisingly close.
Joachim Low’s side reached the final of the 2008 European Championship but were narrowly defeated by; two years later they ran out of steam in the World Cup and finished in the third place.
This time around the DFB eleven more solid than ever, they picked up nine points from their three group games and cruised to the semi-finals by beating in the semi-finals,
the Azzurri ended the Germans’ dream of winning the 2006 World Cup.
Joachim Low’s me will face a resurgent Italian team, who has moved away from their traditional defensive/counter attacking football. They are good at keeping and moving the ball, and will be hard to beat, considering Pirlo’s form.
Schweinsteiger believes his side have midfielders who capable of outplaying the former AC Milan man. He reckons Sami Khedira, who is in the form of his life is developing into a genuine midfielder. Playing in the UEFA Champions
League for a big club like Real Madrid has taught the former man a lot.
"He is playing great," he enthused. "He’s learned a lot at [Real] Madrid and he’s become much stronger. Through that experience in the Champions League, you learn a lot,” he is quoted as saying in an interview.
The Bayern man hailed his partner, who in his opinion is a vital part of the Mannschaft. Despite being a holding midfielder the Real Madrid man is good going forward and has already scored a few goals for Germany, the most recent
one was the spectacular volleyed goal against Greece.
"He’s important for me to play alongside, but also for every player. He’s strong going forward, he’s always available, he scores goals and he drops back,” he added. 
Schweinsteiger insists that it’s crucial for the midfield duo to understand each other’s game against Italy, and to cover one another i.e. both midfielders cannot bomb forward, without cover. 
"But we have to make sure we both know what the other one is doing against Italy."
The much anticipated clash is most likely to be a fierce midfield battles, as both sides will fight for possession of the ball. Germany will look to set the record of 17 wins in a row and book their place in the final.
