Team News

  • Robin van Persie's withdrawal from the Dutch national squad through injury, despite completing the full 90 minutes against Aston Villa at the weekend, means that Klaas-Jan Huntelaar is all but guaranteed to start.
  • Young prospect Bas Dost will be hoping for his first international cap.
  • With Sneijder and Strootman out in midfield, van der Vaart could start in a deeper role alongside Nigel de Jong.
  • Stekelenburg is out so Krul should start in goal.
  • Germany manager Joachim Lowe has a long injury list to contend with, with no fewer than 7 players withdrawing from the squad after the weekend's action.
  • The leaves them without a number of big names, including Schweinsteiger, Ozil and Klose amongst others, and they join Sami Khedira on the sidelines.
  • Sven Bender, Sebastien Jung and Lewis Holtby have been called as cover.


  • This match will certainly mean more to Germany than it will to the Dutch, as they seek revenge for the 2-1 loss at Euro 2012 and the 3-0 friendly defeat prior to the tournament. With Germany significantly weakened by injuries, this match provides a good chance for Netherlands to get one over their rivals.
  • Germany's confidence may have taken a severe blow after their most recent result, as they threw away a 4-goal lead to draw 4-4 with Sweden. They have had a break since then but it could still prey on their minds.
  • On home soil, even without one of their talismanic strikers in Robin van Persie, the Dutch will want to take this opportunity to prove that they are a top team. Germany, when at full strength are quite simply the better side, but with their great many absentees, we could see an Oranje win.

  • @Karim1612 I'm a Football freak ;) and i think i have idea of Football , the German media give me right now. Löw said Podolski did mean it can act as a Forward. But he also mentioned that he could switch 6x

  • Reus will probably score

  • A double pivot comprised of the Benders will not have enough creativity, so it's likely that Gündoğan will play (possibly alongside his club teammate as they'll have e better understanding). Even with so many injuries Germany is a better team than Netherlands. If they lose, the reason will most likely be the disorientated state of the team.

  • IxesIOS Where do you exactly find This Lineups,Do you use some site

  • Germany's lineup is almost complete. Central midfield I do not think : S.Bender - L.Bender I think Gündoğan play. The other part play L.Bender or Neustädter (I hope ;) ). _______________________________ Neuer _______________________________ __ Höwedes _____________ Hummels ___ Mertesacker __________ Lahm ____ _____________________ Gündoğan ________ Neustädter ___________________ ___ Müller _____________________ Götze ____________________ Podolski _ _______________________ Reus __________________________________________
