The Netherlands vs Germany takes place on Wednesday in a game between two of the best footballing nations in the world. The game is scheduled to start at 2.30 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream by clicking on the link below.
This match will see two of the most flair teams of modern times face off against each other.
Germany is not usually a nation that historically has played flair soccer, and are more associated with with their efficiency and technique. But over recent years that has changed under manager Joachim Low, who has installed a host of young exciting talent into the Germany side.
The team's fluent passing and sweeping moves up the pitch have excited soccer fans everywhere in the past few years and if they can show some of that new flair today it should make for a fantastic spectacle.
However, Germany's newly found flair has also seemingly meant some of their old efficiency has been lost. They recently lost a four goal lead to Sweden to go from 4-0 up to 4-4 in their World Cup Qualifying match in Berlin.
That said, the Germany coming out to play Holland today will have to take to the friendly without Bastian Schweinsteiger, Toni Kroos, Jerome Boateng, Miroslav Klose, Mesut Ozil, Marcel Schmelzer and Mario Gomez.
Holland will still be hoping to banish the memories of their poor showing at Euro 2012, where they hugely disappointed neutrals and their own fans who were expecting their usual flair football.
However, what they were treated to was a lackluster team that failed to even earn a single point and went out at the group stages.
Holland will be missing Wesley Sneijder and Robin Van Persie for today's match against Germany. Holland vs Germany will kick off at 2.30 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream on ESPN 3 by clicking here.
