Midfield star Marco Reus says Germany is looking to produce another impressive display, similar to its rout of Republic of Ireland, when it hosts Sweden in Tuesday evening's (Wednesday morning AEDT) 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier.
Ireland was hammered 6-1 in Dublin last week with Borussia Dortmund's Reus scoring twice as Germany stayed top of Group C by picking up its third win in three games.
Joachim Low's side dominated its host at Dublin's Aviva Stadium despite having gone into the game under pressure from the German media after lacklustre displays against Faroe Islands and Austria last month.
Reus now expects the same high standard for the match against Sweden with Paris Saint-Germain's star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic in Sweden's ranks.
"That was once again the football we know from Germany," said Reus.
"Ibrahimovic is an absolute world-class player, but we will play on Tuesday with a our heads held high."
The confidence has returned to the German team after a three-month absence after its EURO 2012 semi-final defeat to Italy, but team manager Oliver Bierhoff dampened growing expectations after the win against Ireland.
There had been hints of unrest in the Germany camp recently after vice-captain Bastian Schweinsteiger said friction had emerged during the EURO 2012 campaign and Bierhoff said the good work must continue.
"We shouldn't rush into euphoria again and insist everything is now resolved. We have to keep working hard," he said.
Having missed the win over Ireland through suspension, Germany captain Philipp Lahm will return and the Bayern Munich star said the aim is to claim another three points.
"That was fun (against Ireland). You could see we played really creative football and we can take teams like Ireland apart," said Lahm.
"All that counts now is Sweden; we are very focused.
"We are facing a dangerous team, perhaps the strongest opponent in the group and we want to bring in the next three points."
Veteran striker Miroslav Klose scored Germany's fourth goal against Ireland to give him his 65th goal on his 125th appearance and put him ever closer to Gerd Muller's record of 68 goals for Germany.
But Klose dismissed any talk of records.
"If we can prepare properly for the game and a few things go our way, we will get a result," said the 34-year-old.
"Much has been written (about the record), but it is best if I keep my mouth shut and concentrate on football."
Real Sociedad coach Philippe Montanier is to leave the Primera Division side at the end of the season after turning down a contract extension, the Basque club has confirmed.
