Bremen to host French friendly
Germany have announced their international friendly against France next February will be staged in Werder Bremen's Weser Stadion.
The last time the national team played in Bremen was in September 2005, when a hat-trick from Lukas Podolski helped them to a 4-2 win over South Africa.
"We are delighted to be back in Bremen after almost seven years and we want to offer the fans an attractive game," said the national team's general manager Oliver Bierhoff today.
"Meetings with France are traditionally attractive duels which take the limelight and enjoy a very high level of importance."
A game against FIFA World Cup™ runners-up Netherlands is also planned for November this year, after the qualifying campaign for EURO 2012 concludes in October.
