Talking about Germany first, Euro 2024 hosts will kick off their post-world cup era with a friendly fixture against Peru. The 2022 FIFA World Cup was a nightmare for Flick’s side, and they would like to restart things positively.
After winning each of his first eight and then only three from the last 11 games, the sextuple winner would be looking to turn things around and, as expected, has made many changes in the squad and would introduce a few new faces in the starting XI. He hasn’t called up big names like Antonio Rudiger, Niklas Sule, Thomas Muller, Ilkay Gundogan, and Marco Reus.
Meanwhile, Jamal Musiala, Armel Bella-Kotchap, and long-time goalkeeper Manuel Neuer are still injured. However, Florian Wirtz is back in the squad for the first time since October 2021. And with Neuer injured, Kimmich, who will be playing his 75th game for the national team, has been announced to take the armband.

On the other hand, Peru, who finished fifth in the CONMEBOL World Cup qualifiers and booked their place in the 2022 inter-confederation playoffs under Gareca, are going through some brilliant form since the arrival of Reynoso, who replaced the former.
Peru is coming to this fixture after recording four wins in their last five fixtures, including against El Salvador, Paraguay, and Bolivia.
Like their opponent, Peru also has injury concerns going to this game, as they’ll be without the services of their two veteran players, Christian Cueva (96 appearances) and Christian Ramos (91 appearances).
Peru Probable Starting XI: (4-3-3): Gallese (C), Advincula, Zambrano, Abram, Trauco, Yotun, Tapia, Aquino, Carrillo, Lapadula, Flores
Germany vs Peru Conclusion:
Although Germany will enter the field without most of its regular players, they still have enough talent in the squad to beat the South-American opponent who will be without two of its veterans.
