Iceland v Germany live stream, Sky Sports, Wednesday 8 September, 7:45pm BST
Germany can take a step closer to Qatar 2022 by beating Iceland in their latest World Cup qualifier on Wednesday.
Joachim Low's 15-year tenure in charge of die Mannschaft came to an end after Euro 2020. The World Cup winner was always going to step down at the end of the tournament, but Germany's limp exit at the last-16 stage may have sealed his fate anyway. Low has been replaced at the helm by Hansi Flick, who will look to supply some much-needed fresh thinking between now and the 2022 World Cup.
Provided they qualify, Germany will probably go into that tournament in the second group of favourites. But the quality in their squad cannot be doubted, and Flick showed at Bayern Munich that he can very quickly turn a negative situation around. Low's exit has certainly raised the levels of optimism around the national team; in truth, the 61-year-old probably stayed on too long.
Germany have amassed 12 points from a possible 15 in the qualifying process to date. A shock 2-1 reverse at the hands of North Macedonia in March increasingly looks like a blip, with the Mannschaft having triumphed in each of their four other fixtures.
Their latest success came against Armenia, who are second in Group J. An emphatic display brought Germany a 6-0 victory on Sunday, with Serge Gnabry (two), Timo Werner, Marco Reus, Jonas Hofmann and Karim-David Adeyemi all getting on the scoresheet.
Iceland have struggled in the campaign to date and look set to miss out on Qatar, having reached their first ever World Cup in 2018. They have won only one of their five games so far and sit second-bottom on four points, behind Armenia, Romania and North Macedonia.
Even a place in the play-offs looks to be beyond Iceland this time around, although we should not judge them too harshly given their relatively tiny population.
Kick-off is at 7:45pm BST and the game is being shown live on Sky Sports Premier League the UK.

Use a VPN to watch Premier league football from outside your country
If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch Steve Bruce’s extra-red face without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
