England v Germany [EUR 2020]

1 Name: 606 2021-06-29 16:07
England v Germany (17:00 BST)

Gareth Southgate has gone for the 3-4-3 that was expected as Bukayo Saka retains his place in attack.

Kieran Trippier is in for Jack Grealish in the only change from the win over the Czech Republic.

Mason Mount makes the bench but Ben Chilwell doesn't.

England XI: Pickford, Trippier, Walker, Stones, Maguire, Shaw, Rice, Phillips, Saka, Kane, Sterling


There are two changes to the Germany side who scraped past Hungary in dramatic fashion.

Ilkay Gundogan and Leroy Sane drop out, alongside Serge Gnabry.

Thomas Muller, Leon Goretzka and Timo Werner come into the side.

Germany XI: Neuer, Rudiger, Ginter, Hummels, Kimmich, Havertz, Kroos, Werner, Goretzka, Gosens, Muller.

England/Scotland is bigger imo.

This one does have a bit of needle to it to the average Englishman but the media love it because they can dig out loads of pics of spitfires and all that other WW2 bollocks they love banging on about.

I saw the coverage for England x Scotland and they made a big deal out of it. Then, after the round of 16 was known, i heard Shearer, Lineker and those guy say something like
Scotland is a nice game but this (against Germany) is a whole different level
meaning it's even bigger. I get the feeling the narrative is always changing with you lads

I can only speak for myself and to some extent for my friends and colleagues (all mid twenties to mid thirties) and while football is still a topic every now and then, nobody really cares about "rivalries".

Most of the time, your favorite clubs play against other national/regional clubs in your own leagues (La Liga, BL etc) and I think i'm not completely wrong when I say that absolutely nobody's national team is "their favorite" club. I assume that people just don't identify with a bunch of well paid players from different clubs that get drafted into a temporary team every 2 years for a few weeks like mercenaries.
Not saying that most of them aren't playing with their hearts and minds in it, but there is no real identity to a national football team.
No matter which country or even continent you're on, you'll never be as interested or emotionally invested into your national team as you are in your local team.

That being said, I really don't care much about the british or swedish or whatever teams. not because I have something against them or the countries they represent, but on an international level, I'm more interested in the "classics" like france, italy, the disgusting netherlands, brazil, argentina and spain.
The artificially hyped up "rivalry" shit is pure cringe kept alive exclusively for overweight lower class trash and people who have nothing else in their lives so they try to go for the next biggest thing. I think it makes for good unterschichten tabloid fodder, but it doesn't have anything to do with being a football fan in particular.

Maybe if you're a formula one boomer who's experienced his midlife crisis in the late 90s and are also otherwise cut off from reality, you might find some enjoyment in tabloid memes with cheese eating frogs, hitler jokes, gay italian hand gestures and whatever else you find funny in terms of grandpa tier stereotypes. To most people under 55, these rivalries are the most boring shit in football.
