Team News

  • Germany are expected to make wholesale changes from the side that drew 0-0 with England on Friday.
  • Joachim Löw has confirmed Toni Kroos, Sami Khedira and Kevin Trapp will all start against France.
  • Mario Gotze, Jerome Boateng, Emre Can, and Julian Brandt will also be pushing for starts on Tuesday.
  • Olivier Giroud has returned to Arsenal after picking up a thigh injury in France's 2-0 win over Wales.
  • Anthony Martial will be looking to start for France for the first time since September 2016.
  • Raphael Varane will start in defence if he can overcome his own injury concerns. Lucas Digne and Adrien Rabiot will also push for starts on Tuesday.


  • Germany are unbeaten in 20 matches after drawing 0-0 with England on Friday. Joachim Löw's side underwhelmed at Wembley at times and they will need to improve to avoid defeat against Euro 2016 finalists France.
  • France are only unbeaten in their last six, being defeated on two occasions in 2017 alone. They have a golden generation of players and it would be a travesty if Didier Deschamps fails to win a major tournament. Beating Germany would be a step in the right direction as they look to build momentum into the 2018 World Cup,
  • Interestingly, Germany have lost their last three home matches against France and failed to score in two of those.

  • look at that alternative strike force from France. too much depth am jealous of this nation. if only they had a good coach they will stroll to that world Cup title

  • France have lots of top quality players but they lack the required balance in the midfield. From what I have seen from them, they have problems controlling games and they have only Nzonzi who is good at controlling the tempo. I'm still baffled by the fact that Mbappe is only 18.

  • @CirdomAkul They have the opposite problem of Germany. They have 10 players who know how to control a game but very, very few good, skilled and fast offensive midfielders. Germany is all about control and very little about fast and creative attacks...

  • Friendly Germany. Friendly Germany. No worries.

  • Boring crap that Germany ist displaying. Only possession, no creativity, no speed, no penetration power, just slow ball movement. Only Sane could help, the rest can only make save passes but can't dribble...

  • @neumi17 Sane didn't get off bench. Seems ridiculous to me. He should be a starter on current form.

  • @Champion I guess Löw wanted to test the other options.

  • 2-2

  • Löw will use this match for an experimental lineup, I guess. It's difficult to predict the outcome...

  • Let's just hope for a lot of goals. 3-3

  • Gotze? That fat little runt was actually picked?

  • @ilovefooty picked, subbed on and made an assist.

  • @Fromhell With his only good move in 30 minutes, yes. Normally he is no option anymore. He peaked as a teenager, now he is to slow and immobile.

  • @neumi17 I won't argue with the fact that he has passed his prime. I don't think anyone will.

  • Germany 3 - 2 France

  • Germany 3 - 2 France

  • Germany 3 - 2 France

  • Kroos and Khedira will dominate the midfield. Germany to win.

  • @Fromhell Kroos has dominated anyone since 2014

  • @ilovefooty - Right, that's why he's won 3 Champions since then ;->
