Germany will be looking to build on their impressive 2-0 win over France when they take on the Netherlands in Frankfurt.

Unsurprisingly, after the way Saturday’s game went, Germany coach Julian Nagelsmann isn’t planning on making any changes to his starting lineup.

“Everyone is fit. The plan for tomorrow is to start with the same team that played against France. But we’ll wait for the final training session,” Nagelsmann told reporters on Monday.

The Germany coach went on to highlight some of the things that went particularly well in the win over France.

“The most important thing was that the duos in the team worked well,” Nagelsmann said, adding:

“Josh [Kimmich] and Jamal [Musiala] on the right side know each other from Bayern. Maxi Mittelstädt and Flo Wirtz don’t know each other from the club, but they also looked good.

“Jonathan Tah played his best international game and was outstanding. The players we have on the pitch are all intelligent. We want to continue in the same vein tomorrow.”

Germany will again be without Beste (groin), Hofmann (hip), Klostermann (thigh), Neuer (groin), Pavlović (tonsilitis) and Sané (suspended).

Coming off a crushing 4-0 victory over Scotland, the Netherlands will have to manage without Berghuis (knee), De Jong (ankle), Timber (knee), Van de Ven (thigh).
