Germany coach Joachim Low cut a relaxed figure as he prepared to fly out for Friday's World Cup draw, saying he would "take it as it comes".
Germany will be among the eight seeded teams confirmed by FIFA on Tuesday afternoon, but with the likes of bogey team Italy among the lower seeds, there is the potential for some interesting draws for next summer's tournament.
That does not concern Low, though, whose side breezed through qualifying with nine wins and a draw.
"We'll just take it as it comes," Low said. "We have no preference. When Germany go to any tournament, we always want the ultimate success.
"I'm really excited about it. This (draw) is the moment when things really get going, when it really starts to take true shape and become more real."
Jurgen Klinsmann's United States team are another of Germany's potential group opponents, as are England, and Low has questioned the criteria for choosing the seeds.
"It's unbalanced and is going to raise lots of question marks and discussion," he told sport1.de.
"When you look at the top group of seeds, then it does make you think if that's the right way - there are going to be several 'groups of death'."
Belgium, Switzerland, Colombia and Uruguay are all among the top seeds with the USA set to be among the lowest seeds while France could be among the third group, making a group involving Germany, England, France and the USA one potential outcome.
FIFA has a complicated system for drawing up the world rankings, based on average results in all games over the past four years.
