TEAMS: France v Germany: Mertesacker & Kos Dropped, Ozil Starts

By on July 4, 2014

France take on Germany in this evening’s first World Cup quarter final and it’s a game that has plenty of Arsenal interest.

However, several of the players will be watching from the sidelines as only Mesut Ozil starts the match out of the Arsenal contingent.

Surprisingly, Per Mertesacker has been left out by Germany coach Joachim Low so he joins the fit-again Lukas Podolski among the substitutes.

Olivier Giroud and Laurent Koscielny also miss out for France, as Didier Deschamps opts for Antoine Greizmann and Mamadou Sakho.


Neuer – Lahm, Boateng, Hummels, Howedes – Schweinsteiger, Khedira – Muller, Kroos Ozil – Klose


Lloris; Debuchy, Varane, Sakho, Evra; Cabaye, Matuidi; Valbuena, Pogba, Griezmann; Benzema.

    I can understand per being dropped to add hummells pace alongside boateng…. but how could deschamps justify dropping the best defender in the premiership last year for that sako clown.. i hope he makes a huge mistake which and costs france the game which he is often prone to and france will look back and realise laurent is there best defender hands down and should be starting..
