On a rainy evening in Munich, Germany won back some respect with a battling performance after their shock World Cup group- stage exit in Russian Federation, their earliest in 80 years in the tournament.

"These matches are relevant for every single market so you optimize in each market", UEFA marketing director Guy-Laurent Epstein has said.

Germany, which had a disastrous campaign in Russian Federation, will be looking to bounce back with a win against France. The first that comes to one's mind is that, "What is the UEFA Nations League?".

Each mini-group contains three teams, with each side playing the other two home and away.

The 25-year-old Varane, who will be making his 50th worldwide appearance, said France must "keep the same values and the same ambition" in the wake of their World Cup victory.

"We want to take part in the consultation process from the beginning, and not when the product is finished".

The 2018-19 Nations League.

France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris lifts the trophy during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia Final between France and Croatia at Luzhniki Stadium on July 15, 2018 in Moscow, Russia. He has a contract until 2022, having extended his deal in the spring.

"It gives us a particular status but I don't think this two-star jersey (in recognition of a second World Cup title) will weigh heavily on us".

Ducey says Kyl has committed to serve through the end of this year and the governor hopes he will serve longer. As ET previously reported, John died at the age of 81 at his home in Arizona , surrounded by his family.

Veteran midfielder Sami Khedira was among those left out of the squad, while youngsters Thilo Kehrer and Kai Havertz have been called up for the first time. Leroy Sane is in the squad after missing the World Cup, and all eyes will be on him after failing to win minutes with Manchester City at the start of the season. The risks don't necessarily come from us as there's also the opposition.

Here's what you need to know about this worldwide competition. "It is confusing, but for us players, we just go into each game trying to win it and see where it takes us".

Thomas Mueller, an experienced member of Germany's ill-fated squad in Russian Federation, said the sell-out clash in Munich is the ideal opportunity to help the team move on from their World Cup debacle. Just as he guilty of doing for his club, the 25-year-old drifted in and out of the game and appeared restricted by his deeper role alongside Kante. World Cup victor France takes on talented Germany on the first matchday of the competition.

Despite their contrasting fortunes in Russian Federation, both teams still have the same managers at the helm with Didier Deschamps and Joachim Loew leading France and Germany respectively.

It goes without saying that England want to build on the positivity in the country after reaching the World Cup semi-final in Russian Federation, and while a poor performance could prove deflating there is every reason to be optimistic about England's chances of winning the whole thing.

"It's a galvanising effect to have this title, in terms of confidence", Deschamps said.

What time does Germany vs France opening match in the UEFA Nations League start? It's quite the opposite.

"With all the positive aspects being world champions has brought, on the sporting front but also from a human and psychological standpoint, it's a huge boost".

Kylian Mbappe is a genuine world star following his World Cup heroics with France and the teenager once again showed his class in Munich.
