Germany legend Franz Beckenbauer believes his country have unearthed the next Lionel Messi in the form of Borussia Dortmund starlet Mario Goetze.
The 19-year-old is earning rave reviews ahead of his country's friendly with Brazil on Wednesday.
And Beckenbauer believes the midfielder has the skills to rival Argentina and Barcelona playmaker Messi.
"It is not possible to stop Mario Goetze," he said. "He has the same assets as Messi."
Goetze played a starring role in Borussia Dortmund's 3-1 win over Hamburg on Friday, their opening game in defence of the Bundesliga title.
He set up Kevin Grosskreutz for the first goal before adding the second with a deft chip.
