Gomez believes he may start over Klose



Forward Mario Gomez believes he still has a chance to make the starting line-up for Germany's Uefa Euro 2012™ opener against Portugal on Saturday, despite general consensus that Miroslav Klose will play from the start in attack. Live on SS3, SS HD3, Maximo and SuperSport.com

"I have a good feeling. The coach has it more difficult than ever before," the Bayern Munich attacker said in Friday's Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.

"I have read in the papers that the decision about the attack has long been decided for Miro. But it's not that clear to me - and also not for the coach. At least he told me so. That gives me hope."

Gomez, 26, also said he does not want a rivalry to emerge between himself and Klose, who turns 34 on the day of the game and is one of Germany's most successful international scorers ever.
