France has secured the last Euro 2016 semi-finals spot. As always, we are here to provide you with our Euro 2016 semi-finals analysis and prediction for the Germany vs France match. Germany, as we predicted, finally scored a win against Italy. Meanwhile, Iceland’s fairy tale came to an end after France dumped five goals on them.
Joachim Low and his team are relishing a bittersweet victory after finally defeating Italy. The world champions suffered significant loss after key players ended up injured or suspended. Forward Mario Gomez will sit on the sidelines after suffering a muscle tear in his right thigh against Italy. Midfielder Sami Khedira also has muscular problems in his left thigh. Team captain Bastian Schweinsteiger’s right knee ligaments are also in a doubtful condition. Mats Hummels, though his limbs are intact, is suspended.
Due to this, Germany must put their trust on untested but highly qualified players such as Thomas Müller, Mario Götze and Julian Weigl.
However, coach Joachim Low remains optimistic. Coach Low is confident the team will be able to formulate a winning strategy regardless of who’s left to play. As a tactical team that relies on group work, the world champions will remain a lethal force in the field.
After a remarkable performance against favorite underdogs Iceland, the host country is well-poised to take a spot at the semi-finals. France is also one of three countries to have won the Euro titles more than once. Germany and Spain have both held the titles three times, and it seems France wants to earn that record, too.
Enjoying home field advantage, France needs to mount a more tactical play if they are to win against solid Germany. Though Germany’s team has been whittled down due to injuries and suspensions, Didier Deschamps knows it will be an uphill battle against the world champions.
“But we are there, in the final four, and we will give our all against the best team not only in Europe, but the world,” coach Deschamps promised for their semi-finals match against Germany in a Euro 2016 report.
