Nations League: Germany 0-0 France

Wales will be desperate to get their revenge against Ireland when they go head-to-head

Next up for Germany is Peru in an global friendly that falls outside of the newly established Nations League tournament, which should provide manager Joachim Low with the flawless opportunity to blood some of the young talent within his squad.

2018 Fifa World Cup Champions France and 2014 World Cup winners Germany have ended a Nations League match this morning with a 0-all draw.

Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane will captain France in the absence of goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, who along with Marseille's Steve Mandanda is sidelined by injury.

His deputy keeper Steve Mandanda is also out for four weeks, and these two remain the only absentee from the squad that won the FIFA World Cup 2018 title in Russian Federation.

It would be a surprise if his starting 11 did not closely resemble the team that began the semi-final defeat to Croatia.

Joachim Loew has the huge task of rebuilding his squad from the one that finished an inglorious bottom in Russian Federation 2018. Thursday's game against France will be a chance for Manchester City's Leroy Sane to prove to Low what a mistake it was, leaving him at home for the World Cup. Ozil, who was one of the most important weapons in Joachim Loew's armoury leaves a huge void in the team.

Didier Deschamps: "I don't see being world champions as a burden but as something wonderful, but we won't dwell on that".

"They don't go from one of the World Cup favourites to an average side now, because the main core is still there".

Friendlies will not disappear completely - there are some free dates since half of the groups have three teams - but they will be drastically reduced.

But whether the Nations League should be linked to Euro qualifying, and if so in what way, are quibbles for further down the line.

Asides the UEFA Nations League colours replicated extensively on the match ball, Adidas also added the official logo of the tournament to the ball.

The opening round of Nations League matches continues on Friday, with Italy facing Poland in the standout game. They are doing the live broadcast of the much-anticipated clash.

The Germany vs France match in the UEFA Nations League starts at 12:15 AM IST.

The Germany vs France match in the UEFA Nations League is being played at the Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany. It is done by Sony Liv app, as well as Jio TV and Airtel TV.
