the match vs. the USA tonight. Why? In Germany everything is about the media. If the BILD Zeitung wants Sammer as the sporting director because he is under contract with the Springer Verlag instead of an "unknown" hockey coach, they manage to get through with that. Now the media proclaims that Germany plays the USA reserves (it's also called B-team or C-team in some tabloids). Now if we beat them 2:1 tonight which is sort of likely given the players situations with their clubs and the amount of time the team is available for the nationalcoaching staff it will be like another loss for the media. If we tie them or even lose they will want Klinsmanns head. Even if we beat them let's say 3-0 all those "experts" will say of course it went that way since they played some "college-kids-from-a-third-world-soccer-country"! But actually a result like this would be just as unlikely if we played VfR Neumünster tonight.
