With less than a year to go before the 2016 Euros, Germany, currently second in Group D, are eager to get points to qualify for the tournament and win their group with four Bayern on board for Friday's game - Mario Götze, Manuel Neuer, Thomas Müller, and Jerome Boateng.
During their last matchup with Poland almost a year ago, the World Cup champions fell 2-0 as a determined Polish side led by captain and FC Bayern striker Robert Lewandowski earned them their first victory over Germany in 19 encounters. Since then, Germany have gone on to win three and draw once in their qualification for Euro 2016.
Germany coach Joachim Löw acknowledged it "won't be a walk in the park", but added there isn't any more pressure to win on Friday: "We’re in a bit of a different situation to other qualifying rounds. We usually find ourselves out in front – this time it’s a bit different, but we’re still not feeling any pressure."
Bayern midfielder Mario Götze, who is set to start in Friday's game according to Löw, is eager to play and feels "positive" ahead of the important matchup.
