Germany vs Japan: Live Streaming International Friendly Between Out-of-form Germany and Japan
Germany faces defeat against Japan in an international friendly, jeopardizing their chances in the upcoming European Championship. Watch the live streaming on Sony Liv.
Germany and Japan are set to face off in an international friendly match. This comes after Germany suffered a defeat against Japan in their opening game, which ultimately led to their group exit with a third-place finish in their respective group.
The hosts of Euro 2024, Germany, will not be participating in the qualifying competition, so this international break provides them with an opportunity to prepare for the upcoming mega event. The clash against Japan will serve as good preparation for their players.
Hansi Flick's side will be in action for the summer European Championship event next year, and it is crucial for them to play regular games in order to be ready for the tournament. This international friendly will be their first game during this break.
Germany has had disappointing campaigns in major events recently, making Euro 2024 an important competition for them, especially as it will be held on home soil. While they won their first game against Peru since the World Cup, they failed to secure a victory in the next four friendlies. Out of those four matches, they were unable to score a single goal twice. In their last game, they suffered a defeat against Colombia, following a loss to Poland and a draw with Ukraine.
On the other hand, Japan had a better campaign in World Cup 2022. They managed to defeat two former World Cup winners, Spain and Germany, to win their group. However, they were eliminated in the round-of-16 after losing to Croatia. The last time Japan and Germany met in a World Cup event, Japan emerged victorious with a 2-1 win, thanks to goals from Ritsu Doan and Takuma Asano. Hajime Moriyasu's side has been in solid form, losing only one game in their last four international friendlies.
The predicted line-ups for the match are as follows:
Germany: Ter Stegen; Rudiger, Sule, Thiaw; Kimmich, Can, Gundogan, Gosens; Musiala, Wirtz; Gnabry
Japan: Nakamura; Sugawara, Itakura, Taniguchi, Tomiyasu; Ito, Endo, Kubo, Mitoma; Kamada; Furhashi
The Germany vs Japan match will take place on September 10, 2023. Kick-off is scheduled for 12:15 AM IST at the Volkswagen Arena.
