Predicted German XI To Face The Dutch: Liverpool Star To Anchor The Midfield Along With Schweinsteiger

Germany prepare to face Holland in another friendly taking place on the 17th of November, but the Germans would still be shaken up after playing against France on the night of the terror attacks in Paris. Reports have stated that the Germans remained in the stadium after the game and the French team kept them company throughout the night.

There were doubts about the chances of most of the friendlies taking place but both the FAs have decided to go ahead with this game and we predict the starting lineup for the German side who will be looking to bounce back from their 2-0 loss against France.

Manuel Neuer

Can anyone replace Neuer? The best goalkeeper in the world should keep his place in the starting XI and will hope to avoid conceding any goals against the Dutch.

Antonio Rudiger

Rudiger has been one of the surprise players this season, even though he isn’t playing in the Bundesliga, he has been turning heads at Roma and should keep his place in the starting XI for this friendly.

Shkrodan Mustafi

The Valencia man came on for Boateng in the last tie and could start in this tie against Holland and set his name for a starting place in Joachim Low’s team for the Euros.

Mats Hummels

You can’t imagine a Germany team without Mats Hummels and the Borussia Dortmund star should keep his place in the central defence as they prepare to face Holland.

Emre Can

The Liverpool midfielder could well be played as a right-back given the lack of fit players for that position. Can did play in midfield in the last game against France after coming on in the first half but he can be played out in defence, such is his versatility.

Ilkay Gundagon

The playmaker that is the Dortmund midfielder, Gundagon didn’t start against France but should be a shoe-in against Holland as the Germans look to get back to winning ways against the Dutch.

Bastian Schweinsteiger

The Manchester United midfielder played the entire game against France and should start for the Germans this time as well since he provides them with a lot of robustness in midfield.

Kevin Volland

Volland has slowly but surely grown in stature in the Bundesliga and whether he is played out as a striker or a right midfielder, he will give it his all. Volland could well turn out to be one of the dark horses to keep an eye out for during the Euros.

Julian Draxler

The new Wolfsburg attacker was taken off in the second half against France but should keep his place in the team as he tries to cement his position in the national side.

Thomas Muller

Thomas Muller should keep his starting berth in this tie against Holland, Muller didn’t score against France, but he would be looking to make amends for that in this friendly.

Max Kruse

The Wolfsburg striker has broken into the German national team with some stellar performances and should get the nod ahead of Mario Gomez to lead the attack for the World Champions.
