Bierhoff defends Dutch friendly

Germany general manager Oliver Bierhoff has defended the decision to arrange a friendly against Netherlands this week.

The Germans take on Netherlands in Amsterdam on Wednesday but the scheduling of the match has been criticised by some, with former Germany boss Rudi Voller suggesting the players should be rested.

Key names including Toni Kroos, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Mirsolav Klose, Mesut Ozil, Holger Badstuber, Marcel Schmelzer and Jerome Boateng are not in the squad for the fixture, but Bierhoff is confident it will still be a beneficial exercise.

"Year in, year out we discuss that November date," he said. "We have made a concious decision to choose Netherlands. We are annoyed that a lot of players are missing. But we trust the players and the clubs."

Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels is among the players who are set to feature versus the Dutch, and he is looking forward to the test after taking part as a substitute in last year's 3-0 win against the same opponents in Hamburg.

He said: "We still have a great team on the pitch. It's always fun against Netherlands."
