Spain captain Iker Casillas has revealed the only threat to their dominance on the international stage is Germany.

Current world and European champions Spain beat Germany in the final of Euro 2008 and again in the 2010 World Cup semi-finals.

But goalkeeper Casillas believes Joachim Low's men, who dismantled England and Argentina in South Africa, are on their way to the top.

"The only team I am scared of and I've got respect for is Germany," he said.

"I like Germany a lot. At the last World Cup, Germany were my favourites.

"They are European rivals, they are young, they have got great players. I think they are going to set the standard for football at international level in a couple of years, when Spain are probably not up there at the top."

Germany clinched third place in the World Cup in South Africa this year, fielding their youngest squad at a major tournament in 76 years with an average age of under 25.
