Germany take on Spain in one of the biggest early clashes of the tournament in Group E. The last time these two teams met in November 2020, Spain secured a resounding 6-0 victory in the Nations League.

Chelsea’s Kai Havertz and Manchester City’s Ilkay Gundogan lead the German squad, while World Cup winning goalscorer Mario Gotze has been called up to Qatar despite not playing for his country in five years.

Germany hopes to improve its performance at the 2018 World Cup, when it failed to progress past the group stage for the first time in history.
