The German FA, DFB Deutscher Fußball-Bund, has initiated a new team called the DFB-All-Stars composed of Germany Legends. The newly founded DFB-All-Stars will make their debut on October 7 when they face their Italian counterparts, the Azzurri Legends.
The DFB-All-Stars will be coached by Berti Vogts, who won the 1974 FIFA World Cup as a player and led Germany to the 1996 UEFA EURO title as a coach.
Vogts and his assistant coach, 1990 FIFA World Cup winner Andreas Brehme, have called up a 18-member squad for the match scheduled to take place at the Sportpark Ronhof in Fürth, Germany. The German squad is led by legends such as Jürgen Klinsmann, Guido Buchwald, Torsten Frings and Roman Weidenfeller.
The Azzurri Legends have also announced a star-studded squad with the likes of Andrea Pirlo, Francesco Totti, Fabio Cannavaro, Gennaro Gattuso and Gianluca Zambrotta.
The match will kick-off at 18:00 CET and will be broadcasted live by German sports tv channel SPORT1.
