Schlotterbeck to start against Switzerland?

AZ suggests that Nico Schlotterbeck could make his first start at Euro 2024 against Switzerland.


Although Germany are already through to the knockout stages, head coach Julian Nagelsmann said after the 2-0 win over Hungary that he does not plan to make too many changes to his starting line-up for the final group game against Switzerland.

Germany will be looking to field a strong side to consolidate their position at the top of Group A, and at the same time Nagelsmann will be looking to keep his starters in the rhythm they've established.

However, that doesn't mean that the starting line-up won't change at all. According to German publication AZ, there could be a change at the back, with Jonathan Tah and Antonio Rüdiger both on yellow cards.

Nico Schlotterbeck, who Nagelsmann spoke to at length after Thursday's training session, could replace either of them, the report suggests.

Germany face Switzerland on Sunday at 21:00 CET. Nagelsmann's side have six points, while Switzerland have four.
