Germany vs Armenia Soccer Friendly Game: TV Channel And Live Stream Info, Start Time ...

Armenian national soccer team head coach Bernard Challandes attaches great importance to an upcoming friendly match against Germany. At a press conference after the team’s training session in Mainz the Swiss specialist discussed the preparations for the game scheduled for June 6 at Coface Arena and spoke about other aspects of the current assembly during which Armenia already played two friendly games – winning one (against the UAE, 4-3) and losing the other (to Algeria, 1-3).

It is not every day that teams have a chance to play against such strong sides as Germany, Challandes explained, according to the Football Federation of Armenian official website.

The 62-year-old tactician, who took over as Armenia head coach in March, said that considering that he had worked immediately with the team for only 12 days he still needed time to get good results. In particular, Challandes said that he wanted to change the atmosphere in the national team and achieve a situation in which the players would not only counterattack but would also be able to play attacking soccer.

At the same time, he said that it wouldn’t be wise to play only attacking soccer against Germany and that Armenia should also be able to defend well.

Addressing the issue of midfielder Aras Ozbiliz, who received an injury in the May 31 friendly against Algeria and would not appear for the Germany friendly, Challandes expressed a hope that the surgery will be successful and the Spartak Moscow man will be able to recover before the start of the Euro-2016 qualifying campaign in fall.

Meanwhile, on Thursday, international soccer’s governing body, FIFA, released its latest rankings of national teams placing Armenia 38th among 200 or so nations. This is a regression by five positions against the rank Armenia held in the May edition.

Germany have failed to impress in both of their World Cup preparation matches over the last month, drawing with both Poland and Cameroon. Coach Joachim Löw will certainly be hoping they'll finally find that elusive confidence-boosting victory in their final warm-up game on Friday, with Armenia heading to Mainz for the fixture.

It's certainly a game that Germany should be expecting to win, with Armenia having been downed 3-1 by Algeria in their last match. Armenia failed to qualify for the World Cup, and it's hard to see them upsetting Die Mannschaft, despite their fitness woes over the last few weeks.

As was the case in their eventful 2-2 draw with Cameroon last time out, coach Löw is expected to field a starting lineup resembling what we'll see in their World Cup opener against Portugal in Bahia next Monday.

Bayern Munich stars Bastian Schweinsteiger and Philipp Lahm have recovered from their injuries and are expected to start this game. However, it looks like Manuel Neuer might sit another match out as he faces a race to get healthy for the World Cup.
