ERASMIA, South Africa — Coach Joachim Loew says Spain is the strongest team Germany has faced at the World Cup and the only way to beat the European champions is to force them into mistakes.

Spain has been the most consistent team of the past two or three years and is the favorite for the World Cup title, Loew said Monday.

But he believes Germany can beat any opponent, including a Spain team whose passing game he praised as a model for his own style.

Germany lost to Spain 1-0 in the final of the 2008 European Championship and the two sides meet in the semifinal of the World Cup on Wednesday in Durban. "We are not speaking of revenge, that hasn't been on my mind at all. We lost the final in 2008 because we were beaten by the best team of the time," Loew said.
