Ahead of Germany’s Euro opener against Scotland, Phil Krug reflects on their 2-1 friendly win over Greece.

He said: “We learned some lessons from the Greece game which will be useful against Scotland. I’m interested to see how the coaches will prepare us for the game.

“I watched a Scotland match and they played differently to what I expected. They press a lot. Against us, there will be phases where they sit deep.

“They try to get into shooting situations as quickly as possible, so it’s going to be important for us to counter that and not let them show their dynamics. We’ll prepare hard this week. It’s just the opponent. It’s not just about preparing, but also about keeping your energy levels up and improving yourself.”
