Wouldn't be expecting too much. From this first round match heavyweight encounter. The new modus favours risk aversion. Germany will be happy with a draw and hope for a quick counter, and I don't think France will offer too much space to Gnabry, Sane and Werner. Best case scenario we see a repeat of the England-Croatia encounter.

Interesting. I wouldn't have gone with that line-up for Germany.

I mean Neuer and the three centrebacks were more or less a given.

However, I wouldn't have gone with Kroos and Gündogan in the middle. One of them (presumably Kroos) alongside Kimmich to offer someone better at recovery in the middle, and put Klostermann on the right. On the left side, personally I would've picked Halstenberg, but between him and Gosens it's really merely a preferential thing. With the front three I would've gone with the more speedy Sane and Werner instead of Havertz and Müller.

Bummed I can only watch the first 15-20 minutes of the match. This one should be good.

Three own goals already in this tournament. There were three OGs in total at Euro 2016.

So we've got a German as France's best striker. Now we got another German being France's best defender.

Pavard was definitely sparked out there. He absolutely shouldn't be playing on.
