Gnabry outplaying Mbappe atm tbh. No idea why he's wearing the number six, though.

Sane, Gnabry and Werner offering plenty of pace on the counter. At least they're trying something different.

Yeah it's a good formation.

Sané's lack of fortune for the NT continues though. He's just not quite on point, for some reason. Unprecise passes, unsuccessful dribblings, etc.
Though it's good he gets a proper chance now, hope he remains a starter now so that he can overcome this blockade

Schulz looks like a quality fullback.

France meanwhile look meh. Don't know if they're still in a post-World Cup hangover, but they look painfully one dimensional tonight. If that pass in behind to Mbappe doesn't work, they don't seem to have any other plan.

I actually hope we lose here and against the Netherlands. It will FORCE DD to stop playing players that don't deserve it (Kimpembe, Pavard, Giroud and Pogba), bring on the better players (Laporte, Sidibe, Lacazette and Ndombele) and stop this nonsense system that bores the hell out of me.

The guy won't do anything unless he's forced to. I don't give a rat's arse about this Nation's League. But the Euro is important...need to adapt.

It's still a glorified friendly, the whole UEFA nations cup affair (which is also why England are doing so well), and yes, France just won the World Cup. They don't really care, and why should they, while for Löw and the Germany NT this has become something of a must-win, all or nothing kind of game.

That accounts for a lot in football.

I can see where you're coming from. Germany certainly have more to play for tonight.

I still think France are a limited team with this starting line-up, though.

We're not limited with the players. The tactics are shit. You can't play like that when one of the CBs doesn't belong (Kimpembe) and your right back (Pavard) has looked god awful since the WC for both club and country. There isn't enough defensive solidity. If DD had half a brain, he would take advantage of our talent in the midfield and the attack... but he's too much of an old numpty for that.

I also understand that he's honoring the WC champ players and won't make changes unless it's completely necessary.

The guys aren't playing very hard though. I don't think they really care or are very concentrated. Don't care if it's a friendly... you need to play harder for the NT.

I actually thought Pavarad was shit in the world cup too. He was getting torched in every 1vs1 situation.

That goal against Argentina pulled the wool over people's eyes.

Remember when Arsenal fans entertained the fantasy that Wenger was about to buy Draxler and convert him into the new Henry?

he honestly should be much better than he is. He has the talent. But he reminds me of Thauvin for France.... lack of speed just does him in at the highest level.

I genuinely don't remember how that started. Laughing

Some Arsenal fans STILL want Draxler, btw.

That result is the most interesting result of the day for me, really.

AS for the Germany v France game, it would seem JLow is probably on his last leg and will be gone come the end of the next 144 hour Nations League match day.
We must embrace change, change for the sake of change is good!

Did not watch the games today, so cant really comment on the match that itself. To a large degree winning football matches is all about confidence, Germany lack that now.

Is DD still holding his grudge against him for claiming he'd play for Spain if he didn't get a call up or something? Spain have tried and are still trying, but he clearly wants France I'm a little surprised I always liked him since his time at Bilbao and was a little shocked how us or you (clubs) didn't even try to get him and let him move to City.

But he's been always sold, good under pressure, can play the ball out and is a solid defender.

Laporte "liked" a couple of Rabiot's inflammatory posts pre-WC... and he was labeled in the junior ranks as someone who was a poor teammate:  Didn't practice hard (sat out with mysterious injuries) and pouted when he wasn't playing. Kept threatening to go play for Spain.

A lot of these talented French players you don't see on the squad are left off due to behavior since the NT has the luxury of leaving them out given the talent available.

Not to mention there's another talented crop of CBs coming up through the youth ranks aside from the several already available. He's not critical.

Every year it annoys me more and more. As if i can't get into the "vibe" of the football season, we play some games then 1 week pause. Repeat 3 times in 3 months ffs

The first weeks in august i am hyped, then my interest slows down until mid-november as the season starts for real and without interruption.
