    SCHLOTTERBECK ON THE OLYMPICS

    ‘The best moment for me was seeing all of the athletes at the opening ceremony. The guys from Togo were behind us and spent the whole two hours dancing.

    ‘It was also good to mix it with other German athletes as well, like Alexander Zverev or the girls from the hockey team.’

    "He showed what he can do last season. He had a great year and became a European champion at U21 level.

    "It was an unlucky match for him with the red card, but before that he had played a great pass leading to the goal that put us 2-1 to the good."

    ‘They are a physically strong team and are good in the middle of the park, especially with Franck Kessie. On top of that we will have to watch out for their fast wide players.

    ‘You could see in their game against Saudi Arabia how technical and fleet-footed they are when they get going.’

    GOOD MORNING

    Welcome to our live blog of Germany v Ivory Coast

    The two sides clash today in their final Group D fixture and the Germans need a victory to secure their place in the knockout stages.

    Meanwhile, Ivory Cost will progress to the quarter finals providing they avoid defeat.

    Wolfsburg midfielder Maximilian Arnold is available for Germany after completing his suspension following his dismissal against Brazil in their opening group game.

    However, Amos Pieper will miss out after his red card in the 3-2 win over Saudi Arabia on Sunday.

    Hertha Berlin defender Jordan Torunarigha is in contention to start in place of Pieper alongside Felix Uduokhai.

    Germany coach Stefan Kuntz may opt for Marco Richter in attack to add fresh impetus to the front three.

    The Ivory Coast have no fresh injury or suspension concerns meaning coach Soualiho Haidara is likely to rely on the attacking threat of captain Max Gradel and AC Milan star Franck Kessie going into this final group game.

    Manchester United defender Eric Bailly will also be called upon to use his experience and lead from the back; as the Ivorians look to secure the positive result that will ensure their place in the next round.
