Former Germany No1 Jens Lehmann praises his successor in the latest in our series asking retired greats from each UEFA EURO 2012 team who they would pick in their own XIs.

Throughout the tournament, UEFA.com will be talking to some of the greatest players from UEFA EURO 2012's participating nations, asking who would make their starting XIs if they were handed the reins to their national sides.

In the latest instalment of our series, we canvass the views of former Germany goalkeeper Jens Lehmann, who helped his country finish third at the 2006 FIFA World Cup on home soil.

Lehmann won 61 caps between 1998 and 2008 and is full of praise for one of his successors as Germany's No1, Manuel Neuer – although he believes the midfield pairing of Bastian Schweinsteiger and Sami Khedira could be key figures as Joachim Löw's team begin against Portugal on Saturday.

To view Lehmann's picks, click on the video above.
