Germany vs Hungary by Cobbyj
Germany will be looking to delete the memory of their loss to Slovakia when they host Hungary today .
Following several near misses, Germany finally secured a major trophy as they won the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, but it has not been easy since then. they've had players retire retire from international football after success, and of course as you can imagine, replacing players like this has not been easy.
Germany team news:
In addition to Reus, Sebastian Rudy, Julian Brandt and Karim Bellarabi were also dropped form the provisional squad, but youngsters Leroy Sane, Joshua Kimmich and Julian Weigl survived the cut.
Bastian Schweinsteiger is unlikely to feature against Hungary, while Sami Khedira is an injury doubt and Toni Kroos returns after lifting the Champions League trophy.
The time when Hungary dominated world football is now long in the past and that the national team struggle to match Europe’s top sides nowdays. Foci have failed to qualify for seven successive World Cup finals and another ten European Championships, before the current squad finally ended the dry run of results, by booking their place in France. It has to be noted though that Hungary have been very lucky, as they have been placed in very much the weakest group.
Hungary Team News
Daniel Tozser, Adam Gyurcso and Adam Bogdan are some of the high-profile footballers to have missed out on the final Hungary Euro 2016 squad, with uncapped Barnabas Bese the only real surprise on the list.
Akos Elek, Adam Lang, Krisztian Nemeth and Balazs Dzsudzsak have all had some problems with injury, but they should all be in contention.
After experimenting with his starting line-up against Slovakia, Germany's manager is expected to name his strongest side for the Hungary game and this will more than likely have a huge impact on the outcome. I think the Hungary side may be left tired and "hungry" once the game is over and their keeper could need therapy!
