Germany : Joachim Low has used 3-4-3 formation throughout the competition and may field the same formation again, though he might make some changes to the starting 11 which faced Cameroon couple of days ago. Marvin Plattenhardt, Kerim Demirbay, Timo Werner may sit out for Jonas Hector, Leon Goretzka and Lars Stindl. Low doesn’t have any Injury problems to deal with nor suspensions.
Possible Lineup – Germany (3-4-3) : Ter Stegan – Ginter – Sule – Rudiger; Hector – Can – Rudy – Kimmich; Goretzka – Stindl – Draxler.
Mexico : Mexico boss Juan Carlos Osorio will be without suspended Captain Andres Guardado for the Semifinal. Carlos Salcedo is already out of the tournament with injury but wait there is more, defender Diego Reyes is set to be sidelined against Germany with a thigh problem and Javier Hernandez remains a doubt for the fixture as he trained seperately on Monday. So Osorio has to rotate his squad if they are to win against the mighty and young Germans.
Possible Lineup – Mexico (3-4-3) : Ochoa – Araujo – Moreno – Alanis; Luis Reyes – Marco Fabian – Herrera – Layun; Lozano – Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez – Vela.
