FIFA World Cup: Germany v Portugal

News, FIFA news, Sports newsDefenders Per Mertesacker and Arne Friedrich are definitely out with heel and knee injuries respectively.

Goalkeeper Jens Lehmann has said he would be willing to stand aside to let veteran Oliver Khan play in one last World Cup game. Portugal defender Miguel misses the game because of a knee injury.

Fifa has defended the relevance of the fixture, which tends to be questioned at every World Cup. Spokesman Markus Siegler said: "I believe there is still a high value in this match. For the players it matters whether they come in third or fourth.

"Especially with Germany playing in the match I think the interest will be high. It is a prestige thing. It's about knowing where the teams finished on the field of play."
