Germany and the Netherlands have kicked off their huge Euro 2012 Group B match from Kharkiv, with neither team making any significant changes from their previous games. There had been a bunch of rumors floating around about potential adjustments to each team, but Joachim Löw and Bert van Marwijk have decided to stick with their original first choice teams.
It's worth keeping an eye on whether or not Mesut Özil can find any of the ball while both Mark van Bommel and Nigel De Jong are focused in on him, and it's also worth keeping an eye on whether or not either of those two defensive midfielders can do anything for the Netherlands going forward.
Neither is going to hit spectacular through balls or make surging runs forward, but they might accurately make solid passes to the guys around them and make good decisions on the ball. The Netherlands will have problems again if there's a massive gap between the defensive midfielders and Wesley Sneijder, and if they can't get the ball to Sneijder on a regular basis.
