Antonio Rudiger, Germany’s defender, has urged his colleagues to play rough football against France’s attackers in their Euro 2020 opening on Tuesday night at Allianz Arena.
France has a strong attacking line that includes Kylian Mbappe, Karim Benzema, Antoine Greizmann, and Olivier Giroud.
Didier Deschamps’ team is in a difficult group alongside Germany, Portugal, and Hungary.
“Of course, they (France) have good forwards (Mbappe, Benzema, Griezmann and Giroud), we have to be ready to win the one-on-one challenges,” Rudiger said at a pre-match press conference ahead of the game.
“We have to be a little dirty, not always be nice or try to play nice football.
“Against players like them, you have to throw down a marker.”
The kick-off time for France vs Germany is 8 pm.
