No changes expected from Voller

Rudi Voller was pleased with Germany’s performance in the 1-1 draw with Holland and is unlikely to make many changes to that line-up for the match at Porto’s Estadio do Bessa.

Rudi Voller was pleased with Germany’s performance in the 1-1 draw with Holland and is unlikely to make many changes to that line-up for the match at Porto’s Estadio do Bessa.

However, the fine performance as a substitute of Bastian Schweinsteiger may give him an option should he wish to change things around in midfield.

If Voller does decide to give Schweinsteiger a chance it will likely be at the expense of Bernd Schneider who had a poor game against the Dutch.

Germany (probable 4-4-2): Kahn; Friedrich, Worns, Nowotny, Lahm; Baumann, Schneider (or Schweinsteiger), Ballack, Hamann; Frings, Kuranyi
