Arguably the highlight of Wednesday's international friendlies sees two World Cup winners, Germany and France, face-off in Bremen.

Germany will be looking to continue their impressive form that saw them brush aside 2010 World Cup finalists Holland 3-0 last time out. However, coach Joachim Low will have to do so without several big names.

Bayern Munich pair Philipp Lahm and Bastian Schweinsteiger--captain and vice-captain of Germany, respectively--will both be missing through injury. The team will also be missing two other experienced members in the form of Lukas Podolski and Per Mertesacker.

In goal there will be an opportunity for Tim Wiese to impress in place of the regular number one Manuel Neuer. The Werder Bremen stopper should at least feel at home in his surroundings, with the game being played in Bremen's Weserstadion .

Germany starting lineup (confirmed): Wiese, Howedes, Hummels, Badstuber, Schmelzer, Khedira, Kroos, Muller, Ozil, Schurrle, Klose.

For France their main story before the game has been coach Laurent Blanc's naming of goalkeeper Hugo Lloris as permanent captain going into Euro 2012. The Lyon goalkeeper had been vying for the role with Barcelona's Eric Abidal and Milan's Philippe Mexes.

France also have injury problems of their own with Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema currently on the sidelines. In his place will be 25-year-old Olivier Giroud. The Montpellier forward will be looking to stake his claim for a Euro 2012 place.

The match will be a test to see how far Les Bleus have come since Laurent Blanc took over following the side's disastrous 2010 World Cup campaign. Germany are widely regarded as favorites for the summer's European Championships alongside world champions Spain.

France starting lineup (confirmed): Lloris; Debuchy, Rami, Mexes, Abidal; Cabaye, M'Vila, Nasri; Valbuena, Giroud, Ribery
