Joachim Loew’s team comes bolstered by 10 wins from 10 qualifying games but will be missing striker Miroslav Klose and captain Philipp Lahm in Friday’s match.

Germany will test the ground that will stage the final after recently visiting Poland, the second co-host of next year’s tournament.

Loew also sees the match as an opportunity to test some rarely used players and try out different formations.
