Our prediction for this match:
Pratt & Whitney Stadium at Rentschler Field will be the centre of attention when United States of America and Germany square off against each other in a highly-anticipated friendly. The Yanks aim to build on a thrilling 4-0 win over Oman, but they face a difficult task against Das Team. Gregg Berhalter has a number of high-profile players to choose from, with only defenders Miles Robinson and DeJuan Jones coming from the Major League Soccer.
As always, a man to keep an eye on in the home team will be captain Christian Pulisic, who has netted 26 goals in 62 appearances for the USA national team. The Germans, on the other hand, did well to beat France in their last warm-up game, with the team putting an end to their five-match winless run. As the visitors are likely to stick to their attacking style of play, we are tempted to put our money on over 2.5 goals. New boss Julian Nagelsmann has recalled Mats Hummels, with Kevin Behrens, Robert Andrich, and Chris Furhich receiving their first call-ups.
Highlighted Player (Leroy Sane):
Leroy Sane began his senior career at Schalke 04. The pacey winger, who is capable of playing as attacking midfielder as well, made his debut for die Knappen on 20 April, 2014 against Stuttgart. Sane came as a substitute in the second half of the match, replacing Max Mayer 13 minutes before the final whistle.
He scored 11 goals in 47 league appearances for Schalke and on 2 August, 2016 he signed a deal with big-spending Premier League side Manchester City. The former Schalke footballer joined the Citizens on a five-year deal for a fee of £37 million. Sane was born in Essen on 11 January, 1996, but his father is Senegalese.
Souleymane Sane used to play for the Senegalese national football team in the past, while his mother Regina Weber was a rhythmic gymnast. Speaking of his international career, Leroy Sane has 6 caps for Germany U21 and he made his debut for the senior team on 13 November, 2015 in a 2-0 loss to France.
