Manuel Neuer has outlined his expectations for Germany's Euro 2020 opener against reigning world champions France tonight at Allianz Arena in Munich.




"We are looking forward to the start and to a hopefully successful European Championship," said the Germany captain at the pre-match press conference and added:

"It is something very special for me to have these games in Munich. We are pleased to be able to start here in Munich, similar to in 2006. We are looking forward to it and need all the support.

"Of course, we don't need to reveal anything before the game, that always has to happen on the pitch. We have to show our character and show that we absolutely want to win our games."
