    They are not suppose to rest the key player because this is Tournament event and it is not friendly match. They are fully wrong. Another thing is that this is their third time to participate. First time, they were been eliminate. Second, they in third position and now they are currently in right now. Why not give Germany a chance to win for first time ? At least is something unique.
