GOOD EVENING FROM MSV-ARENA
Good evening and welcome to our live coverage of the UEFA World Cup Qualifier where we’ll see the four-time champions welcome Iceland to Duisburg.
We’re excited for this qualifier to go ahead despite Hofmann testing positive for Covid-19, according to reports.
Bayern Munich midfielder Joshua Kimmich missed out on the German camp due to illness, though he has reported to be feeling much better and hoping to see him open the game tonight.
The Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos has left the camp due to injury so instead we should be seeing Kimmich, Gundogan and Goretzka starting the game in midfield.
We will also be looking out for the 18-year-old Jamal Musiala the Bayern Munich attacking midfielder.
Both Niklas Sule and Robin Gosens have both been ruled out due to injury, so it will be interesting to see who deputises this game.
On the Icelandic front, we won’t be seeing Gylfi Sigurdsson in this game as him and his wife are expecting the birth of their first child, so the Everton man won’t be taking part in March’s fixtures.
His absence will be felt by the Icelandic as Emil Hallfredsson is also out through injury.
The match is due to kick-off at 7:45pm tonight UK time at the MSV Arena – home to third tier side MSV Duisburg.
