The 2018 FIFA World Cup Champions France will go head-to-head with the 2014 FIFA World Cup Champions Germany on Tuesday night in the 2020 UEFA European competition at Allianz Arena, Germany.
It will be Joachim Low’s last chance to win a major tournament with Germany as he has opted to step-down from his duties after the tournament.
The Germans have always shown a back-bone under the mentorship of Low as they have been able to reach the UEFA EURO 2008 final, the semi-finals in 2012 and in 2016.
The Germans have always come close to tasting success in recent tournaments. However, they lifted the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
According to DFB, German coach Joachim Low said their match with France will be an exciting as they are ready for the reigning World Cup Champions
“There’s a great anticipation because we’re going up against the current world champions. We have prepared very well over the past two weeks and made some steps in the right direction. There’s a good atmosphere, and also a lot of ambition and drive. We are well prepared and looking forward to getting started,” said the 61-year-old.
Germany’s golden era has come to an end under the 61-year-old. As anticipated, to maintain his good reputation, Low opted to resign as the Germans have fallen victim to several poor results, namely a 6-0 drubbing against Spain and a 2-1 defeat to North Macedonia.
However, the Germans managed to put seven past Latvia in their final warm-up match.
