David James insists the England squad are confident of beating Germany in 90 minutes rather than seeing Sunday's World Cup second round clash go to penalties.
England have twice been knocked out on penalties by Germany, in the 1990 World Cup and Euro '96 semi-finals.
But England No.1 James is convinced his side have what it takes to beat Joachim Loew's men and go all the way to the Final.
"The intention is to win the game in 90 minutes," said James, who hasn't conceded a goal against either Algeria or Slovenia since winning his place back from Robert Green.
"Germany are a decent outfit, but we have the confidence of going to Berlin and beating them 2-1 (in November 2008). I am confident that we will do what's needed.
"The idea of beating Germany is romantic and is an achievable goal for us. We aren't underdogs with no chance. We want to win and then go on to the next team and beat them as well."
And James reckons Wayne Rooney is back to his best and is ready to make a huge impact against Germany, who topped Group D.
He added: "I'm sure Wayne would like to make this his game. As with the rest of the squad it is all about the team winning, but I thought Wayne's contribution was superb against Slovenia.
"As an individual he would have liked to have scored, but he was very happy for the side to go through without him scoring."
