In the ten previous meetings between these two teams, Germany has walked away with seven victories, according to UEFA.com. However, when they met in a friendly game on May 29, Slovakia crushed it, winning 3-1. The Germans were playing all their rookies, though, and they haven’t allowed a single goal to be scored on them this tournament. It’s safe to say that things will be radically different.
Germany’s waiting to hear if their star defender, Jerome Boateng, 27, according to ESPN. Jerome’s been dealing with a calf-muscle issue. “We’re all very positive about it and hope it works out,” assistant coach Marcus Sorg, 50, told reporters. “We’ll do everything to make sure [he’s okay.]” If Jerome still needs time to recover, he’ll likely be substituted with Benedikt Howedes, 28, or Shkodran Mustafi, 24.
While Germany’s one of the heavy favorites to win the Euro 2016 tournament, Slovakia isn’t giving up! Everybody is looking forward to [playing Germany,]” team captain Martin Skrtel, 31, said, per The Evening Standard. “It makes no difference if it is Germany, Wales or Russia. Every match here at the European Championship is unique for us.” Whoever wins, this will be an exciting game!
