German national coach Joachim Löw has mostly been using a 4-2-3-1 system lately, but Sky pundit and former German international Lothar Matthäus would like to see 'Die Mannschaft' line up in a 3-4-2-1 formation for the match against France.
Löw has previously experimented with that exact system - for example at the Confederations Cup - so the team shouldn't be completely unaccustomed with it.
Here are the players Matthäus would advise Löw to pick for the line-up:
Manuel Neuer - Jerome Boateng, Niklas Süle, Mats Hummels - Joshua Kimmich, Leon Goretzka, Toni Kroos, Nico Schulz - Thomas Müller, Marco Reus - Timo Werner.
If Löw picks a 4-2-3-1 formation instead, Germany are likely to line up like this:
Neuer - Kimmich, Boateng, Hummels, Schulz - Goretzka, Kroos - Müller, Reus, Draxler - Werner.
