We've always beaten Portugal in tournaments over the past 10 or 12 years. In our last meeting in 2014, our opening game, that gave us good momentum. Now we have a completely different team, as does Portugal. They've been playing together for a while, they won the title in 2016, beating France at home. That was great for them. - Joachim Loew before the tournament, UEFA official website
The Germans qualified for this tournament by finishing top of that group which contained Netherlands, Northern Ireland, Belarus and Estonia. Germany won 7 of their 8 group matches, losing only one which came at home against Netherlands.
