How to watch the Germany vs Japan friendly, plus kick-off time and team news.
Hansi Flick’s Germany are set to face Japan in a friendly in the first international break of the season.
The German team is under immense pressure after failing to win any of their previous four matches, losing three of those matches. The 2014 world champions have lost to Belgium, Poland and Colombia in their last four matches. They haven’t even managed to score a goal in their last two games.
Japan comes into this match off the back of two big wins against Peru and El Salvador, scoring 10 goals in those two matches. The 20th-placed side were one of the top 16 teams at last year’s World Cup, where they beat Germany in the group stage.
