Germany v France Preview
France manager Laurent Blanc
“We have no fear at all. We are going to play against them like we would against anybody else.
“At the same time, I hope we are more successful than in our recent games. If not, we will be punished.
“We will not be changing our philosophy just because we are playing Germany.
“In this sport, it is always best to measure yourselves up against the very best.”
Germany manager Joahim Low
“France are showing a very different face to the one they had at the 2010 World Cup.”
“The team has rediscovered the traditionally good organisation of the French, a solid defence.
“In attack they have several players who are world class, they all play at top clubs.”
“This is an interesting test for us. We will, regardless of the result, take on board the necessary lessons ahead of the Euros.”
“This game is the end of a whole series of tests since 2010. We have specifically chosen top-class opponents and in all games have used more than 20 players without there being any great variations in form.
“That is testament to the balance we have in each individual position.”
