Germany Vs. Brazil, 2011 Friendly: Lineups

Do you like international friendlies? Who doesn't like international friendlies?!? Okay, probably the club managers of all of the players who are playing today, but they're all a bunch of Debbie Downers anyway. No one who plays for a team I personally support is playing in today's friendly between Germany and Brazil, so I'm very much in support of it being a thing. I'm also in support of both teams fielding extremely strong, if not entirely first choice lineups.

Germany's lineup is kind of odd, and I am assuming that Christian Träsch is a fullback. Brazil's makes a lot more sense. Here are the lineups

Germany lineup (4-2-3-1): Neuer; Lahm, Badstuber, Hummels, Träsch; Schweinsteiger, Kroos; Podolski, Götze, Müller; Gomez

Brazil lineup (4-3-3): Julio Cesar; Andre Santos, Thiago Silva, Lucio, Daniel Alves; Ralf, Fernandinho, Ramires; Robinho, Neymar, Pato

The game kicks off at 2:45 pm ET and can be seen on ESPN3.com in the USA. We'll have live coverage of this and all of the other big friendlies in this StoryStream.
