Hey, there’s a soccer game happening! It’s Die Mannschaft minus Jerome Boateng, Mats Hummels, Toni Kroos, and Thomas Müller, but you should still watch: Manuel Neuer will gain further playing time as he readies himself for the World Cup, while David Alaba should be healthy to lead Austria to glory—as a midfielder! And on top of that: this may be the final opportunity for some players to impress Jogi Löw as he prepares to make Germany's final roster cuts.

- If you’re a new member, feel free to introduce yourself. We’re
mostlyvery friendly. Also, we’re from all parts of the world, so don’t feel shy if you’re from a country that doesn’t seem represented on the blog.
- Refresh the page regularly to keep up with the discussion. One refresh every 55-60 seconds is ideal but if that’s too much then just try for one every five minutes and after every goal.
- The goal celebrations are for everyone to participate in. Even if you’re lagging behind the others, keep replying to the most recent call of the player’s name. Even if you missed the first call, just start from the second, and so on.
