Germany vs France: 5 Key duels that will change the course of the match
Oliver Giroud vs Bendikt Howedes
This will be a class apart encounter as both the players will try to use their physicality to get into each other’s skin. Howedes will be the first option as the Germany’s reliable Defender Matt Hummels is a suspended from the game but Bendikt Howedes is proven name and wouldn’t pamper while everyone knows what Oliver Giroud can do when he is on a scoring spree and it certainly looks like the one who emerge strong against the other will give a straight advantage to his team.
Jerome Boateng vs Antoine Griezmann
Well this duel looks particularly exciting as this would be the test of two skillful players. Both have a spectacular tournament to their name as they have been lauded with some high praises by the critics and fans. On one hand is the Euros 2016 top scorer Antoine Griezmann who has looked deadly after being played in his favored position and has 3 goals in the last two matches and on the other hand is the Germany’s defender Jerome Boateng who has been brilliant for his team expect for a few blunders like the one against Italy.
N’Golo Kante vs Toni Kross
This will be an epic duel as both have been the standout performers for their respective teams with their brilliant contribution but the work of both the midfielders is bit different as the French man deals as a cover to all his defensive line and do some hard work in the names of tackles and interceptions and some time initiate some sizzling counter attacks while Tony Kross dictate the tempo and game for the German team and hence N’Golo Kante would be assigned the job by the French boss to keep a tab on Toni Kross and thus in process hit the Germans at their pivotal point.
Paul Pogba vs Kimmich
Paul Pogba is undoubtedly the main man for the French team as he can devise some great attacks for the French just with as ease and plays on his favored left flank for the French team but the germans have a young and brilliant player to counterattack him there in the name of Kimmich. The German team has always struggled for the right back after the retirement of Philip lahm where they tried a lot of player but none of their option seems working but Kimmich has emerged as the best option for them with his brilliant skills and could be the one who can make this Pogba threat dormant.
Patrice Evra vs Mesut Ozil
The experienced French warhorse will be up against the man with a brilliant vision. Patrice Evra has years of experience with him and knows what it’s like to play on top level against the top players but his day will be hellishly hard as he will have to deal with the German Maestro and the scorer against Italy. If mesut Ozil gets going for his team and Patrice Evra could not deal with him then the German team will have one leg in the finals.
