Germany vs. Faroe Islands: Live Stream and TV Info for 2014 World Cup Qualifier
Germany will continue its preparation for the 2014 World Cup when they take on the Faroe Islands in a qualifying match on Friday.
The 2014 World Cup is very important for Germany because now most of their young squad from the 2010 World Cup are very experienced and in the prime of their careers. There will be no excuses for failing in Brazil.
This is a huge mismatch for the Faroe Islands, who are several notches below the Germans. They will need a miracle to defeat one of the world's top squads, but miracles can happen.
Let's look at all the information you need to watch this exciting match.
When: Friday, September 7 at 2:45 p.m. ET
Watch: Univision Deportes
Live Stream: ESPN3.com
Where: Allianz Arena
Most Important Player To Watch: Miroslav Klose
With Mario Gomez not in the squad for Friday's match against the Faroe Islands, Germany's striker will be veteran Miroslav Klose.
Klose is one of the best international goal scorers of all time, and is still a top player for the German squad, either as a starter or substitute.
His technical quality is superb, and he has great awareness in the final third of the pitch. Expect him to be a key part of Germany's attack in this game.
Key Matchup: Germany forwards vs. Faroe Islands center-backs
For the Faroe Islands to have any shot at earning a draw, or even a shocking victory, they must defend the German forwards and attacking midfielders well for the entire match.
With Klose, Thomas Muller, Lukas Podolski and Marco Reus all having the ability to score goals against any opponent, Germany has plenty of attacking options to combat the Faroe Islands back four.
If Klose and Podolski are allowed enough room to operate in and around the penalty box, expect them to score a few goals for Germany on Friday.
What They're Saying
According to Germany boss Joachim Low, midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger won't play versus the Faroe Islands (via Goal.com):
I have spoken at length with Bastian.
We have agreed that it takes a while to get back into the rhythm of playing again. Our plans are to have him back for both matches in October against Ireland and Sweden.
Germany has way too much attacking firepower for the Faroe Islands to contain in this game. It's a severe mismatch that Germany will win, which will get them off to a good start in their 2014 World Cup qualifying campaign.
With great midfield play, and a solid performance from star goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, expect Germany to win this match 4-0 at the Allianz Arena in Munich.
