As the anticipation builds and the chatter subsides, we’ve arrived at the long-awaited moment: the beginning of a thrilling tournament hosted by Germany, set to commence this Friday.

Germany, shaken by a few disappointing years, is eager to reclaim its stature in the world of international football under the guidance of Julian Nagelsmann.

The former Hoffenheim and Bayern Munich coach brings a squad that, at least on paper, looks poised for success.

The team is expected to start strong against their first opponent, Scotland. Central to Germany’s strategy will be Jamal Musiala, a dynamic playmaker who chose to represent Germany over England. Musiala enters the tournament on a high note after a solid season at Bayern Munich, where he netted 12 goals across all competitions.

Accompanying Musiala in the attacking force will be Kai Havertz, who has had a notably successful debut season with Arsenal.

Meanwhile, the veteran Toni Kroos looks to add a storybook ending to his illustrious career with a strong performance in what will be his final tournament before retirement.

Germany’s defense, though formidable on paper, carries some uncertainties. Antonio Rudiger’s availability is in question following a training ground altercation with teammate Niclas Fullkrug, which resulted in Rudiger training solo as the team prepares for the opening match.

Scotland, on the other hand, is under no illusion about the challenges ahead. Having participated in their first major tournament since 1996 at the last European Championship, they failed to advance beyond the group stage.

This year, they aim to go further bolstered by a strong qualifying campaign that saw them secure a spot directly, bypassing the need for play-offs. They finished just four points behind group leaders Spain, and ahead of Erling Haaland’s Norway.

Under the leadership of Steve Clarke, Scotland has shown resilience and capability. However, their path is not without obstacles.

The group they find themselves in, which also includes Switzerland and Hungary, will be tough.

As Germany and Scotland prepare to face off, the match is set to be a telling indicator of both teams’ prospects in this tournament.

With Germany looking to dominate and Scotland keen on exceeding past performances, the stage is set for a compelling start to what promises to be an exhilarating summer of football.
