On Monday night Australia will face a German team almost unrecognisable from the side which claimed the World Cup title in Brazil three years ago, but Aussie coach Ange Postecoglu has warned his side to not be complacent and consider the Germans as weak opposition. Ahead of this group B match in the Confederations Cup 2017, you need to know match preview and where to watch Germany Vs Australia live stream online in India, UK & USA.
German coach Joachim Low has only selected Shkodran Mustafi, Matthias Ginter, and winger Julian Draxler from the World Cup winning squad. However, a youthful German side can be equally dangerous and will present the Socceroos, with a different set of challenges.
Eight wins and two draws in their last ten matches, netting 31 goals and conceding just two, shows the Germans to be in red hot form. They’re doing the right thing, they’ve stated that they want to win a World Cup in 12 months time and this is part of their preparation for it. We’ll be ready for it.” says Postecoglu.
“At the end of the day it’s Germany footballers comes tournament time, they always perform well.”
“While others may think there’s some sort of weakened aspect to it, that’s not how we’re approaching it. One thing we won’t underestimate is their ability to play the kind of football they’ve been renowned for.”
The Socceroos face Chile and Cameroon within six days after the clash with Germany, and it is important for them to get a positive result against the Germans to better their chances of going deep in the tournament.
