Today Germany take on old rivals England in a friendly match in Berlin. The game is a perfect opportunity for both teams to test line-ups and tactics ahead of this summers EURO 2016.
Germany are set to face Mexico in the second semifinal of the Confederations Cup and national team coach Joachim Löw is not lacking confidence. The winner of Thursday's contest will go on to face Chile in Sunday's final.
What a summer it has been for German football. But we shouldn't be surprised - this is the result of years of impressive work off the pitch. And it certainly isn't a second-string national team, writes DW's Ross Dunbar.
Germany head coach Joachim Löw has named his squad for the upcoming international break. Timo Werner has been given his first call up, while Lukas Podolski is to play his last match for Germany against England.
Most countries are bringing their best to Russia for this year's Confederations Cup, but not Germany. The squad selection from coach Joachim Löw made one thing clear - he is planning for next year's World Cup.
