The German U19 national team will have to play against the hosts right from the start of the European Junior Championship 2017 in Paris. On 14th of July, 2 p.m., France and Germany will play the opening match of the tournament at the Stade Laurent Plegelatte.

In the last edition of the Junior European Championship in Dresden 2015, the German U19 juniors had entered the tournament with a 35-6 victory in the semi-final against France. But not only the home advantage has now been reversed, but also the squad is almost completely different than in the game in Dresden against France, which become European champion in 2004 and 2006 twice by victories in the Final over Germany.

The French, of course, want to return to the top as soon as possible, and special expectations are linked to the home European Championship.

After the victory in the qualifying tournament in the Netherlands without a single counterpoint, the German team also goes to the tournament.

A goal for both is the final - probably against Austria. The title defending champion is the great favorite in the game against Italy to win the fourth consecutive title.
Let the games begin!
