Germany clings on to beat Australia after keeper's blunders

Emre Can set to start for Germany

Both are in the prime of their careers, and although they have only two caps each for Germany, a total of almost 400 combined appearances in the Bundesliga means they know exactly what it feels like to play football at the highest level.

Germany will be favourite, and if Australia is to have any chance of reaching the knockout stages, it is imperative for the Socceroos to come with a favourable result.

Germany has brought a very young and inexperienced squad as their coach, Joachim Low made a decision to rest their star players. "And a strong performance against a team like Germany gives you confidence to face anyone".

It was left to Rogic to force the issue - the rangy Aussie slicing through the German defence firing, collecting the rebound off an opposition player, and then unleashing again to beat Bernd Leno between the sticks.

Joachim Löw has named an inexperienced squad for the tournament in Russian Federation, with Manuel Neuer, Thomas Muller, Mesut Ozil, Toni Kroos, Jerome Boateng and Mats Hummels all absent.

The world champions have made no secret of the fact their goal is not to win the Confederations Cup, but to blood their next generation of stars.

Germany could have been out of sight before the half-hour mark as they constantly unlocked a pass-orientated back three their visitors looked vulnerable in.

"In any tournament, the first game's pretty crucial". Let's defend a little higher up the park as we planned to do and get our wide players right up into their back four.

"We can't just expect that everything will function seamlessly", he said.

The same can be said about the striking pair of Sandro Wagner and Lars Stindl. A lack of playing time at Bayern Munich has frustrated the versatile 22-year-old who has still become a regular in the Germany starting XI. Subsequently, they aren't sending their A-squad it seems to the Confederations Cup.

"I think he knows what I can do", said Kimmich, who operates as a defensive midfielder or across the back line.

"The key thing for us is believing in the way we play and the philosophy of the last two or three years", he added. "He knows I can play in a lot of different positions". I've featured in many games, but not from the beginning. "Absolutely I thought we matched it with them for periods of the game and the character and resilience they showed is unquestionable".

Brazil have won the last three Confederations Cups, but will not be able to defend their trophy after failing to win either the World Cup or Copa America.

Confident enough perhaps to take on the giant roller coaster next to the Fisht Stadium.
