This is a match-up between two of the most promising contenders for Euro 2024.

France have remained unbeaten in their last four matches after losing to Germany in the last friendly. Didier Deschamps’s side has registered some impressive results on the road, defeating Gibraltar 14-0, their largest-margin win ever. Les Bleus have held a strong position after a win over Scotland and Netherlands and a draw to Greece in the last few matches. France are currently ranked second in the world behind Argentina and are one of the favourites to win the Euros. 

Following two losses against Turkey and Austria, Germany will look to bounce back in this match. With the Euro 2024 on the horizon, Julian Nagelsmann has a golden chance to test these players against quality oppositions like France and Netherlands to get a better idea of the squad so that he can decide whom to field in the starting XI. With Toni Kroos’ return to the squad, Nagelsmann will now have quality and creativity in the team. This match will be a chance for Germany to repeat the heroics from their previous friendly outing against France.

Sun, 24 March at 1:30 AM IST

Location – Groupama Stadium

Player to Watch

Kylian Mbappe (France) 

PSG star Kylian Mbappe has emerged as one of the best players in the last few years with great success for both club and country. At 25, he is France’s second highest scorer with his prime years to come. With 38 goals for PSG this season, he has looked in tremendous form. He is just 10 goals away from being the all time leading scorer for France. France will be among the top contenders for the Euros this summer because of his form this season. 

Toni Kroos (Germany) 

This summer, Germany will be boosted by Toni Kroos, who has been a monument player for the German national team in recent years, playing for them 106 times and scoring 17 goals. Over the past decade, Kroos has established himself as one of the best midfielders in the world, making impressive performances at Real Madrid and Germany. He will be crucial to their success with his vision and range of passes. His greatest quality is his calmness and composure under pressure, and he boasts an incredible passing accuracy.
