Frank Kramer (Germany):

Our philosophy is we have to be active all the time – got to put the pressure on. Whether you play with one or two strikers, it is still the same. You have got to be active. We don't want to be wide, just wide enough to get through. The time has gone when it was enough to be a technically good player – if you don't have speed, you have no chance. At the Youth League finals in Nyon, each team had speed in every position and a very high, technical level.

Germany team analysis

Germany team analysisGermany team analysis

• Basic system of 1-4-3-3 in attack with 1-4-1-4-1 in defence, wide players tracking back to help.
• Build-up play from defence to midfield, constructive.
• Wingers tucking in to allow full-backs to overlap.
• Good link between the lines with Görkem Saglam (15) often moving forward to support Etienne Amenyido (9).
• Good pressing when losing possession and transitioning to defence.
• Athletic players with perpetual movement and pressing.
