Germans without Hummels (banned), Khedira (injured) and possibly Schweinsteiger, although Low has said that he'll start in place of Khedira.  Mario Gomez out for the tournament.

France have the full 23 to pick from, so suspect it's a simple choice of whether he sticks with the team that tonked Iceland or recalls Rami or Kante or both. 

France looked great going forward against Iceland, but Iceland were pretty ordinary and it's not like the French attack will get anything like that amount of room and possession against the Germans.  Yet to be convinced by France defensively and will be interesting to see how they cope with sustained pressure.

Germany look typically German.  Waltzed through the group stages, blitzed Slovakia and ground out qualification against the Italians, despite not playing overly well.  Much may depend on who covers for Hummels and how well he does so.

The Germans tend to turn up when needed and I expected them to be marginal favourites in spite of France's home advantage.  Initial play is Germany to qualify at odds against.

mea culpa

I have to say I got this all horribly wrong

I had a Belgium german final and was hoping for Gomes to be top scorer coming in on a late run.

I took some cover on Ronaldo and Griezman as a precaution so am ok on Top Goalscorer but definately lost throughout the Tournament.

Well done to whoever called it and to The Water Carrier. I don't like him but he has played his cards well.
