Magdeburg (dpa) – Hoffenheim’s Angelo Stiller leads the German U21 national team in the friendly match against France instead of Jonathan Burkardt as captain.
Mainz’s Burkardt will miss the internationals against France on Friday and are injured in England on Tuesday.
For the endurance test at the start of the European Championship season, DFB coach Antonio Di Salvo relies on his Cologne offensive all-rounder Jan Thielmann, who was slightly ill this week. Freiburg’s Noah Atubolu makes his third appearance for the U21s in goal. After his goal in Borussia Dortmund’s 1-0 win in the Revierderby against FC Schalke, goalscorer Youssoufa Moukoko appears in the starting line-up, as announced.
