There are many curious eyes wanting to find out what's really the matter with Lukas Klostermann. While he was substituted only after a few minutes of the match in what was their last warm-up fixture, Germany's coach insists that it was not an injury move but a tactical one. Thomas Muller nor Antonio Rudiger were given a bit of a break but come the big game, they should be raring to go.
Neuer, Kehrer, Sule, Rudiger, Raum, Kimmich, Goretzka, Hofmann, Musiala, Sane, Havertz.

On paper and on man-to-man considerations, Germany start as favourites as they seem to have enough ammunition in their ranks. What works to Germany's advantage is that quite a few of the Japanese players aren't unfamiliar to them as they participate in Bundesliga. Moreover, they are known to play an attacking brand of football that can put Japan under pressure if they manage to breach the Asian team's defenses regularly.
