In a packed Matchday 5 schedule in the 2020 UEAF Euro qualifying round, no single match features a pairing as high-profile as Friday's meeting between three-time champions Germany, who last won the European title in 1996, and the 1988 title-winning country, the Netherlands. But with his team having played only two matches so far, Dutch Coach Ronald Koeman says that he does not consider the match against Germany "crucial," as quoted by the BBC.
The game is definitely a big one for Die Mannschaft, who sit on nine points, three behind surprising Group C leaders Northern Ireland, who will be Germany's opponent on Monday. In the meantime, Joachim Löw's squad will be hungry for the full three points against Netherlands, in the game that will stream live from Hamburg.
UPDATE: Netherlands defeated Germany in the game, 4-2, on the strength of four second half goals.
