German Footbal Association (DFB) has announced that Germany’s two final international friendlies will be against Slovakia and Hungary.
Joachim Loew’s men will first take part in a charity game against Slovakia in Augsburg on Sunday 29 May, while the match against Hungary will take place on Saturday 4 June at Schalke’s VELTINS-Arena.
The game between the two Euro 2016 participants will be the final test for Die Mannschaft before they head to their Evian-les-Bains camp for the 2016 European Championship finals on 7 June.
DFB vice-president Dr. Reinhard Rauball expressed his delight over the fact that the German FA was able to provide beneficial circumstances to Joachim Loew’s troops and fans alike.
National team manager Oliver Bierhoff has announced that both games will be played in the afternoon hours so that kids and young adults will get the chance to see their heroes live in stadium.
“Die Mannschaft has long wanted to play a game in the late afternoon or early evening. It’s even nicer that we’ve been able to make that happen for our final two games before the EURO 2016,” said Bierhoff.
Germany have been drawn in Group C and will compete at the 2016 European Championship finals against Ukraine, Poland and Northern Ireland.
Loew’s team start their journey to the title against Ukraine on 12 June at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais in Lyon.
