I think Germany had to change shape for this game. There is SO much pace and dynamism in the French midfield, he needed to bolster the numbers back there. Khedira and Schweini should cope, with Kroos to help out.
Ethan, France look dangerous, but seeing as my girlfriend is German, I'm saying a 2-1 win in extra time for Low's men. Griezmann, Klose (for the record) & Schweini.
Udyat, I think they've got enough experience between them to contain Pogba and frustrate him into getting involved in physical battles and fouls. The key will be for his French teammates to open up the space and support him.
I honestly can't call this one. Experience says never write off Germany, the last match says now would be a very good time to ignore experience.
The teams are out at the Maracana in the sunshine - nervous yet?
Team captains Hugpo Lloris and Philipp Lahm are speaking to the crowd using mics to denounce discrimination in the modern game - and we're onto the French anthem.
That's not very nice. They put the tallest mascot in front of Valbuena and now no-one can see him.
