Germany and Argentina name starting XIs for prestige friendly

Marc-André ter Stegen has been handed the starting gloves for Germany’s friendly meeting with Argentina in Dortmund on Wednesday night.

Controversy has surrounded the goalkeeping position of late due to the Barcelona man’s displeasure with his lack of game time behind Manuel Neuer.

After a bright start to the season with Freiburg, Luca Waldschmidt also earns his first cap for his country.

For the South American side, Lautaro Martínez and Paulo Dybala start in attack together, just days after they each scored for opposite sides in the Derby d’Italia.

Despite little playing time in England this season, both Juan Foyth and Marcos Rojo feature from the outset.
