Germany coach Joachim Löw has explained his decision to field a 3-4-3 with Joshua Kimmich as a right wing-back for his side's Euro 2020 opener against France tonight.


"I've opted for a three-man backline because we have to be defensively sound. At the same time, we need good people down the flanks to attack," Löw told ZDF ahead of kickoff.

"That's why I decided to let 'Jo' Kimmich play on the right-hand side. Attacking down the wings gives us more options than through the middle."
