After a bitterly disappointing 2018 that saw them fail to defend their World Cup title when they fell out at the group stage, as Sky Sports reported, followed by a failure to advance to the final four of the new UEFA Nations League, German Manager Joachim Loew is likely fighting to keep his job. What might otherwise be a casual friendly match against Serbia now takes on new importance as more than just a warm-up for Sunday's 2020 Euro qualifier against the Netherlands — the same team that drew with Germany to end their Nations League run last year. The intriguing friendly on Wednesday will live stream from Germany.

Kickoff is scheduled for 8:45 p.m. Central European Time at the 26,000-seat VfL Wolfsburg Arena, also known as Volkswagen Arena, in Wolfsburg, Germany, on March 20. That start time will be the same in Serbia, which also occupies the Central European time zone.

Loew is not being shy with his rebuilding approval to the German squad, shockingly dropping Mats Hummels, Jerome Boateng, and Thomas Mueller — all mainstays from Germany's 2014 World Cup winning side — from the squad that will face Serbia and the Netherlands, according to AFP and posted by Sport 24.
"We are now face a new time, a new challenge. I have to give the team the feeling that we fully trust them," Loew said on Tuesday, as quoted by The Irish Times. "We have to give them the chance to develop, take over more responsibilities and also during a rough patch offer them solutions when they make mistakes so they have the trust to go into the next months."
