Germany and France renew their soccer rivalry when they meet in the quarterfinals of the 2014 World Cup on Friday. The Germans feel confident that the know where their strengths are, and where France’s are as well.
“France have some fantastic individual players like [Paul] Pogba, [Karim] Benzema and [Mathieu] Valbuena,” Andre Schurrle told FIFA. “They have a lot of quality and can create goals from any situation. We know their strengths, but we also know ours.”
“It’ll be an interesting match. They’ve got lots of good young players, but so do we. We just have to stick to what we’re great at, play our usual game and not get carried away. We need to continue what we’ve been doing since the outset, but adding in a bit of extra focus, determination and aggression,” France’s Mamadou Sakho told FIFA.
