IT’S all change for Germany as they get their World Cup qualifying campaign underway against Iceland.
Joachim Low has announced that he will step down after Euro 2020 as a new generation of players come through the ranks.
But the German coach of 15 years is still in charge for the time being and will want a dramatic improvement on his side’s 6-0 loss to Spain last time out.
Iceland showed they were capable of springing a surprise at Euro 2016 but failed to qualify for this summer’s tournament after losing their play-off final 2-1 in Hungary.
Romania, North Macedonia, Armenia and Lichtenstein are the other teams in this group with first place qualifying automatically and second entering a four-team play-off tournament.
