Malta Independent - - SPORT -

Ger­many will kick off the 2017 in­ter­na­tional soc­cer sea­son with a friendly against Eng­land in March. The Ger­man soc­cer fed­er­a­tion says the March 22 match will be played in Dort­mund at Ger­many’s largest sta­dium.

Fed­er­a­tion pres­i­dent Rein­hard Grindel says the match against Eng­land is a “tra­di­tional pres­tige con­test” that should please the fans in the “great at­mos­phere” of Dort­mund’s sta­dium.
