Soccer-France confirm Euro 2024 warm-up game with Germany


(Reuters) - France will play Germany in a friendly in March 2024, the French Football Federation (FFF) said on Monday.

This will be France's first warm-up game before the Euro 2024 finals, which Germany will host.

"The France team will launch its year 2024 with the reception of Germany, in a friendly match on Saturday, March 23 at Groupama Stadium in Lyon," the FFF said.

The two sides last met in September, when Germany ended a three-game losing streak in a 2-1 win over France in Dortmund. Rudi Voeller was Germany's interim manager at the time, after the sacking of Hansi Flick.

Julian Nagelsmann has since taken charge of Germany, who will host Euro 2024, and after a winning start against the United States, his side have since lost to Turkey and Austria.

France topped their qualifying group undefeated, ahead of the Netherlands, who they will face again in Group D in Germany, alongside Austria and the winner of Playoff A.

Germany will take on Hungary, Scotland and Switzerland in Group A.
