(Sporting Alert) — Germany have been impressive so far at the European Championship, but believe it will need to play well again to fend off a Greece side building on confidence.
The Germans are one of the favourites to win the entire tournament and will again look to its growing young stars to continue to shine.
There was a surprised, however, as coach Joachim Low has decided to start with Miroslav Klose in the forward position instead of Mario Gomez.
Bastian Schweinsteiger, Mesut Ozil, Sami Khedira and Philipp Lahm are all also starting for Germany.
Meanwhile, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Kyriakos Papadopoulos are expected to be tested vigorously at the back by the powerhouse attacking form of the Germans, but they, alongside the fellow backs are ready for the challenge.
