Big Interview: As a Spanish international with a German wife who has never played club football in his home country and plies his trade with RB Leipzig, Dani Olmo is as well placed as anybody to talk about today’s big game. Sid Lowe sat down with the midfielder for a chat in Donaueschingen …

Those teams: A late call-up for Aleksander Pavlovic, who had to drop out of Germany’s squad with tonsilitis on the eve of the tournament, Emre Can makes his first start of the tournament for Germany, with pink-haired Barbie boy Robert Andrich making way.

Jonathan Tah returns to the Germany side after serving a suspension and Nico Schlotterbeck drops to the bench. Spain manager Luis de la Fuente sends out the same 11 men who started against Georgia.

Spain: Ilkay Gündogan believes Germany can look forward to their quarter-final against Spain “with a smile” having already changed the mood in the country and fulfilled their objectives at Euro 2024, writes Sid Lowe.


Early team news

With his squad untroubled by suspensions or injuries, Spain boss Luis de la Fuente is expected to field an unchanged side to the one that came from behind to beat Georgia last time out, although it would be no great shock to see Dani Olmo Mikel Merino come into midfield in place of Pedri.

Germany manager Julian Nagelsmann has something of a dilemma now that Jonathan Tah is back from suspension. He’ll have to decide whether or to reinstate his first choice central defender at the expense of Nico Schlotterbeck, who was excellent in the Bayer Leverkusen man’s absence. Florian Wirtz was also benched for the win over Denmark and could return this evening at the expense of Leroy Sane.
