The French team starts the Euro 2021 with a top match today against Germany! The atmosphere in the bars and restaurants of Saint Martin will be turned up a notch!
In this Group F clash, the 2018 world champions travel to their predecessors with high spirits, a full squad but a claimed humility before facing a revengeful rival, unable to beat the French neighbor since the 2014 World Cup quarterfinal (1-0, goal by Mats Hummels).
In Munich, Les Bleus will be in a hostile land in an Allianz Arena where 14,000 spectators are expected (including between 2,000 and 2,500 French according to the latest estimates). That is to say 20% of the stadium’s capacity, due to the need for sanitary precautions.
Four “Franzosen” will nevertheless feel a little at home in Munich: Benjamin Pavard, Lucas Hernandez, Corentin Tolisso and Kingsley Coman will have the right to a special reunion with their German colleagues from Bayern, whether Manuel Neuer, Serge Gnabry, Joshua Kimmich or Thomas Müller.
“At club level they are my friends, but for one match they will be my opponents. There will be no gifts, if it is necessary to put the foot I will put it, “said Pavard. The tone is set!
The probable composition of France against Germany: Lloris- Pavard, Varane, Kimpembe, Hernandez – Pogba, Kanté, Rabiot – Griezmann, Benzema, Mbappé.
