We are finally at the end of one of the most Exciting Euros in the recent history, Cristiano Ronaldo led Portugal into the Finals yesterday after stopping the Wales Juggernaut. It’s finally coming down to the ‘Big Boys’ !! Germany Vs France, the two Europe giants battle for the last Final berth to play against Portugal. Whether it’s France who have been indifferent on the International stage ever since Zinedine Zidane retired or Germany who has been on a steady rise since the same stage.
Germany Vs France Match Preview, Team News
Date, Time and Venue
France faces Germany at the StadeVelodrome in Marseille on Thursday, July 7, with kick-off scheduled for 8pm UK time and 12:30am IST on the 8th of July.
France will be happy to get the services of Adil Rami and N’Golo Kante back in their starting eleven and would be hopeful that Koscielny and Giroud do not pick up a booking as that would rule them out of the finals which will be against the in-Form Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal who have shown how to ‘grind out results’ in this tournament.
On the other hand, Germany will be sweating on the fitness of Sami Khedira and Bastian Schweinsteiger as both have picked up knocks with Mario Gomez already ruled out of the tournament. Rubbing salt in the wounds is the suspension of Mats Hummels but if one team has the bench strength to match the starting eleven, it’s Germany ! So Joachim Low would be hoping his fringe players rise up to the occasion for the missing starters.
France manager, Didier Deschamps :
Look, Germany are Germany. They’re the reigning world champions and one of the best sides at the European Championship.They had a scare against Italy in the quarter-final but other than that, they’ve been in control of all the games they’ve played. But it won’t be a stroll in the park for them: we’ll go all out for it. We’re playing in France, our own country, and we’ll go all out for it. We have to remember anything is possible.
Germany manager, Joachim Low on absentees :
I am especially sorry for Mario [Gomez]. He put in some good performances at these Euros and has helped the team, not only with his goals. For us, it means we have to accept the new situation and find solutions, which we will do. The quality of the team is high and I have full trust in all the players – we’ll be ready on Thursday and we’re looking forward to the semi-finals.
