"We're looking forward to it. There's huge anticipation and joy. We have no pressure," Schweinsteiger told a press conference at the iconic Rio de Janeiro stadium.

Striker Miroslav Klose is the only survivor in the Germany squad from the team beaten 2-0 by Brazil in the 2002 final, but Schweinsteiger says that his teammates have sufficient experience of playing in major games.

"We have lots of players among the 23 who've played in important finals and we know how to handle that," he said.
