Germany vs France LIVE: Euro hosts aim to end terrible form after sacking Flick

The DFB was forced to act after a humiliating 4-1 home defeat to Japan that followed dismal results in the Nations League and World Cup. 

Germany host Euro 2024 next summer and they are now desperate for a boost in confidence ahead of the next major tournament. 

They’ll be aiming to get that boost against France but it won’t be an easy task with Didier Deschamps’ side winning their last five games without conceding a goal.

“We need a spirit of optimism and confidence with a view to the European Championships in our own country.
