Match Day 1 Preview

All votes are in for Match Day 1 and this is how it stands...

30 players have selected Germany!

2 players have selected Scotland!

Germany's likely starting line-up is a team dripping with silver and gold.

Two World Cup winners, 13 Champions League medals, 13 World Club medals, 30 Bundesligas, five La Ligas, five English Premier Leagues - and that’s not counting domestic cups, which would bring the overall titles tally to close to a century.

Every squad has its own story and Scotland’s can be summarised in a word: resilience. They are footballing renaissance men.

It’s not to say that their German equivalents have not had hurdles to clear in their own careers, but Scotland rewrite the book on that front.

Five of Steve Clarke’s 26-man squad are either without a club or soon to be unattached.

Throughout the camp there are stories of players fighting back from heartbreaking rejection, flak from fans and very serious injury.

United by struggle, they are easy to identify with and easy to root for.

Good Luck!
