France vs Germany probable lineups for the UEFA European Championship 2020
Karim Benzema was forced to leave the game against Bulgaria early last Sunday, but the Real Madrid star is believed to be training regularly.
In France, many rumored that Olivier Giroud and Kylian Mbappe were rioting a split in the wake of the former apparent dig for his teammate. Giroud came on from the bench and scored twice against Bulgaria in a friendly, but he is also expected to begin from the bench during this game.
Also, Antoine Griezmann and Raphael Varane have overcome minor injury problems for this tight encounter, leaving Chelsea man Kurt Zouma the lone injury concern. As for Germany, Mats Hummels, Manuel Neuer, and Matthias Ginter are likely to start, just like in the friendlies with Latvia and Denmark.
Jonas Hofmann is off with a knee injury but has never been anticipated to start. And though Leon Goretzka is on his way back from muscular injury, Toni Kroos and Ilkay Gundogan should manage the midfield. The team boasts a preposterous richness of offensive abilities but Low just needs three leaders to begin in the opening day with a combination that is believed to be the most likely by Serge Gnabry, Thomas Muller, and Kai Havertz.
France possible starting XI:
Lloris; Pavard, Varane, Kimpembe, Hernandez; Kante, Pogba, Rabiot; Griezmann; Mbappe, Benzema
Germany possible starting XI:
Neuer; Ginter, Hummels, Rudiger; Kimmich, Kroos, Gundogan, Gosens; Havertz, Muller; Gnabry
