Also in action on Sunday are World Champions Germany who get their campaign going against the Ukraine. And one of the key members of Die Mannschaft is Andre Schurrle, who made his first visit to China recently where he spent some time talking to Mike Fox about his team's chances at the Euros. 

It's almost impossible to imagine a tournament without Germany playing a major role. For the 2016 European Championships, Joachim Loew's team will be looking to add to their World Cup success two years ago, with more or less the same group of players that lifted the World Cup. One of those players is Andre Schurrle, and after a tough season with Wolfsburg, the 25-year-old is looking to the national.

At the World Cup his and his team's performances did the unthinkable, when they humiliated hosts Brazil 7-1, with Schurrle scoring twice as a substitute.

In the past two years, more talent has come through the famous German youth set-up, it’s a set-up that the rest of the world is envious of.

So this time in France for the Euros, Germany find themselves in Group C along with Northern Ireland, Ukraine, and Poland, who will be led by prolific Bundesliga forward Robert Lewandowski. It’s true the draw could have been tougher, but that won’t stop this German side from performing with the highest standards of professionalism that saw them crowned world champions.
