19.30 clock: Welcome to the live ticker of VIP News. Stefan Kuntz did not want to say too many words about exceptional performers Luka Jovic. "I probably know him even less than you," said the U21 national coach on a similar question before the second German first round match against Serbia with the previous top scorer of the Frankfurt on Thursday in Trieste. "If a player at Eintracht Frankfurt itself developed so that he then goes to Real Madrid, that says a lot, "said Kuntz.
The most important information in advance:
STARTING POINT: The German young footballers have won their first match 3: 1 against Denmark and could make another big step towards the semi-finals with another victory. Serbia, on the other hand, surprisingly lost Austria 0-2 and is now required. "I think there will be a response from the Serbian side tomorrow because they were not satisfied with the first game," said Kuntz.
OPPONENT: Jovic, who moves from Eintracht Frankfurt to Real Madrid in the summer for an estimated 60 to 70 million euros, is by far the most famous player of the Serbs. "If we all focus on him, the other Serbs will have a nice game," warned Kuntz. "We are preparing for eleven players with a high individual ability." This includes the talent of defense Nikola Milenkovic of the Fiorentina, in which several top-club should be interested.
STAFF: All 23 players in the German squad are fit - whether Kuntz will change its starting eleven against the 3-1 victory against Denmark, he left open on Wednesday. "All in all, I have to say that the base that set the team was pretty good too," he said. It could be a change in the defensive midfield, where Berlin's Arne Maier made his comeback against Denmark after a long injury break and was replaced at half-time after a weaker performance.
AND OTHERWISE? The mood in defending champions Germany's EM quarter is good, the opening success has brought relief. "Of course, such a first-time win is good," said Kuntz. "If we win, we have six points, that's our goal," said defender Benjamin Henrichs. "I think we have a lot of plans here." The three group winners and the best runners-up make the leap into the semi-finals - six points would be a good basis.
