Germany – Netherlands in the live ticker – U21 European Championship: DFB team before quarter-finals


Germany – Netherlands (kick-off: 9 p.m.)

Germany: Dahmen – Vagnoman, Pieper, Schlotterbeck, Jakobs – Dorsch, Maier – Baku, Özcan, Berisha – Nmecha

Netherlands: Scherpen – Teze, Schuurs, Botman, Bakker – Harroui, De Wit, Koopmeiners – Lang, Gakpo, Kluivert

7:55 p.m .: The German U21 starts against the Netherlands with two new players. Coach Stefan Kuntz brings Cologne left-back Ismail Jakobs for David Raum, and Salih Özcan from 1. FC Köln starts in the attacking midfield for the ailing Mainz Jonathan Burkardt. In the other positions, Kuntz relies on the same formation that defeated Hungary 3-0 at the start of the European Championship.

Welcome to FOCUS Online’s live ticker. The tension also increases with Stefan Kuntz. For his U21 national team, the second European Championship game against the Netherlands is about getting into the knockout phase of the tournament – and about prestige.

“You are of course just as tense and excited on the line to see if everything will work out like that,” said Kuntz about the feelings before the football classic, which is also characterized by the rivalry between the countries in the U21s. “You are focused so that you can react and you wish from the bottom of your heart that the guys stand up to the comparison,” said Kuntz. What else to watch out for in the duel in the Hungarian Szekesfehervar.

Germany vs. Netherlands: All information about the game

FAVORITENSTURZ: With numerous well-known players in the line-up, the Netherlands went into the tournament as one of the favorites – and stumbled right at the start. “After the 1-1 draw against Romania, the pressure is a little more on their side,” said Kuntz, who with his selection after the 3-0 start against co-hosts Hungary is in the better starting position.

“But these are players who are of high quality and they will perform well under pressure. They are still among the favorites for me,” said Kuntz.

REVENGE: For Cologne’s Salih Özcan, the duel should be one with ugly memories: Two and a half years ago, the 23-year-old was spat at by Jordan Teze after a 1-1 draw in the U20 international match against the Netherlands.

On Saturday there will be a reunion between Özcan and Teze, who apologized at the time and was temporarily suspended. “Of course I still remember the incident because it was gross unsportsmanlike conduct and disrespect for me,” Özcan told “Bild”. “We had no contact after the game or in between and won’t see each other again until Saturday.”

Moukoko falls out against the Netherlands

SPECTATOR: Youssoufa Moukoko cannot celebrate his U21 premiere against the Netherlands either. Because of his bruised shin, the 16-year-old missed the German team’s second European Championship game after the opening game. The 16-year-old exceptional talent from Borussia Dortmund was not present at the final training session.

Kuntz had already said on Friday that he had “little hope” that Moukoko could play. Moukoko has the last chance to play in the preliminary round on Tuesday against Romania – then he could become the youngest German U21 international. With the ailing Jonathan Burkardt, on the other hand, the chances of being used are slightly higher.

BUNDESLIGA DUEL: Four professionals from the German federal leagues are in the Netherlands’ squad – and some meet current or former club colleagues. U21 captain Arne Maier, who is on loan from Hertha BSC to Arminia Bielefeld, will meet his former Berlin teammates Deyovaisio Zeefuik and Javairô Dilrosun.

Justin Kluivert from Leipzig and Ludovit Reis from VfL Osnabrück will also meet again with numerous well-known players from the two national leagues. “Germany always has a good team – regardless of whether it is the senior national team or a junior team,” said Kluivert. “That’s why I know it’s going to be a tough game for us.”
