Germany won the FIFA World Cup 2014 but fell out in the group stage four years later at Russia 2018. This year, the European giants head to Qatar 2022 with a lot of pedigree and they will be aiming to add to the already four FIFA World Cup crowns they have won in the past.
Today at Khalifa International Stadium Germany starts with a mixture veterans and young talents. Leading the way are Manuel Neuer and Thomas Müller as the two previous World Cup winner as five Bayern Munich players start today.
Manchester City star İlkay Gündoğan starts in midfield and will play alongside former England U21 player and 19-year-old Jamal Musiala and Joshua Kimmich in the middle with Chelsea’s Kai Havertz leading the attack and Serge Gnabry joining in the frontline as well.
Former Chelsea defender Antonio Rüdiger starts at centerback with Niklas Süle, as Germany and Japan meet for the first time at the FIFA World Cup.
Germany will be without former Manchester City winger Leroy Sane, who unfortunately picked up a knee injury in training and misses out, while 2014 World Cup hero Mario Götze, teenage star Youssoufa Moukoko and Karim Adeyemi are among the substititues.
Meanwhile, Yasuhito Endō is among the highlighted starters today for Japan who are usually very slick in movement and hurried in passing the ball from back to front. Expect the same thing today.
