USA vs Germany: Where and how to watch?
Julian Nagelsmann will manage Germany for the first time
The Julian Nagelsmann era is officially underway for Germany, the proud host of Euro 2024. As they gear up for a series of exciting friendlies, their journey kicks off with a thrilling encounter against the United States, affectionately known as the Yanks. The USA has been riding high in their recent exhibition matches, securing victories against Uzbekistan and Oman with a commanding aggregate score of 7-0. These wins underline the growing strength and fierce competitive spirit of the team under the guidance of their World Cup coach, Gregg Berhalter.
Berhalter’s return to the coaching hot seat came after a tumultuous period of off-field controversies for the USA. In his absence, B.J. Callaghan led the team to victory in the CONCACAF Nations League and successfully defended their Gold Cup crown. Although the latter ended in a heart-wrenching semi-final penalty shootout against Panama, Callaghan’s tenure was commendable. With Berhalter back in charge, the USA aims to continue their winning streak as they prepare to face Germany.
Their recent friendly matches against Uzbekistan and Oman served as the perfect opportunity for Berhalter to fine-tune his squad. The team showcased their attacking prowess by netting a total of seven goals. The USA has already received a bye into the quarter-finals of the ongoing CONCACAF Nations League, and their opponents for the last eight are yet to be determined. As they gear up for more competitive action, a friendly against Ghana is also on the horizon. Berhalter’s squad is eager to maintain their impressive form and goal-scoring streak in front of their home crowd.
The Stars and Stripes have been prolific in front of the goal, finding the back of the net in each of their last 12 fixtures across all tournaments. This remarkable run began after a goalless draw with Colombia in January. Equally impressive is their defensive solidity, having conceded just six goals in their last 14 friendly home matches.
In stark contrast to the USA’s resurgence, Germany, the Euro 2024 host, has faced a challenging period. Their former head coach, Hansi Flick, who enjoyed unparalleled success with Bayern Munich, couldn’t replicate that success at the international level. Flick’s tenure was marred by a series of disappointing results, including a 3-3 draw with Ukraine and losses to Belgium, Colombia, Poland, and Japan. The defeat to Japan, a resounding 4-1 loss, marked the end of Flick’s time in charge.
Rudi Voller stepped in as the interim manager for the visit of France to the Signal Iduna Park. In a true “manager bounce” fashion, Germany managed to defeat the 2022 World Cup runners-up 2-1, thanks to the efforts of Thomas Muller and Leroy Sane. Rudi Voller’s successful stint as interim manager paved the way for Julian Nagelsmann, who assumed his role amid widespread anticipation. Nagelsmann had been linked with several European powerhouses before taking charge in his homeland. His mission is to rejuvenate Die Mannschaft and restore their former glory.
Nagelsmann’s first challenge as Germany‘s head coach is the friendly against the USA. Following this, Die Mannschaft will face Mexico in Philadelphia. These exhibition matches will provide Nagelsmann with valuable insights into his team’s strengths and weaknesses. Notably, Germany’s recent performances have raised concerns about their defence, having gone six games without keeping a clean sheet. This is a worrying statistic for a team with such a rich footballing tradition.
It’s important to note that the USA has managed to win their last two friendlies against Germany, including a 2-1 victory in June 2015 under Jurgen Klinsmann. This history adds an extra layer of anticipation to the upcoming clash, making it a must-watch event for football fans around the world.
