Spain have long been tipped to win the competition, but Kuntz insisted Germany are ready to shock them.

“I would like to let others decide who are favourites, but we are not finished yet, we want to achieve something and that’s what we’re thinking about right now,” he said.

“From the beginning we said we wanted to measure ourselves against the best. We have played Italy, England and now Spain. It’s very cool.

Kraków is set to host of the closely fought Under-21 European Championships final in the recent history of the competition, with Germany battling it out with Spain for the coveted titlIt hasn’t been a stellar tournament for Stefan Kuntz’s team as they just managed to scrape into the final two, but one thing they have shown is unity as a team and they seem to have that in abundance.

Kuntz was dealt a big blow with the majority of the squad been promoted to the senior side for the Confederations Cup, and despite that they started well with comfortable victories over the Czech Republic and Denmark. 

They did suffer defeat to Italy in their final group game but had done enough to qualify and set up a tie with England in the semi-finals, but that was certainly more than an test as the tie went all the way to penalties after the 2-2 draw in extra-time.

Young goalkeeper Julian Pollersbeck was the hero though they look to be the underdogs Kuntz has stated that he wants to test his side against the best.

“We said from the start we wanted to measure ourselves against the best,” Kuntz told his pre-match press conference. “We’ve faced Italy, England and now Spain.”

“It’s a great challenge,” the former German international stated. “We’ll play as we did in the other games, stick to our philosophy, but also adapt to our opponents.

Spain will not only go into this clash as clear favourites but also looking to equal a bit of history, as they look to equal the record for the most U21 European Championships titles as they look to claim the fifth in their history.

The Spanish have blown away the competition thus far having remained unbeaten, scored 12 goals and conceded two in their four matches, but they faced a tough opponent of the record title holders Italy in their semi-final.

Spain will not only go into this clash as clear favourites but also looking to equal a bit of history, as they look to equal the record for the most U21 European Championships titles as they look to claim the fifth in their history.

The Spanish have blown away the competition thus far having remained unbeaten, scored 12 goals and conceded two in their four matches, but they faced a tough opponent of the record title holders Italy in their semi-final.

 “I think they’re great opponents,” the 41-year-old admitted to the gathered press. “We have respect for Portugal and Italy who are great teams but Germany are in the final.” 

“Miracles don’t exist,” he stated. “There is a lot of talent there and we have to do something more than we did against Portugal and Italy.”

Despite losing the majority of their squad to the Confederations Cup Kuntz still has some talent at his disposal, with Max Meyer and new starlet Serge Gnabry all expected to get a place in the starting XI.

There are some injury concerns for the German’s with Davie Selke picking up a slight knock in the defeat of England and Niklas Stark missing the semi-final all together with a neck injury, but Kuntz seems to be confident that they will be available for selection in Kraków.

Like the Germans the Spanish side is littered with senior players, with the tournament’s top scorer Ñíguez expected to start and supported by Marco Asensio.

Celades will look to continue with his 4-3-3 formation with Saul and Ansensio supported by the likes of Héctor Bellerín and Gerard Deulofeu on the wings, the only change from the win over Italy could be the inclusion of Denis Suárez to help shore up the midfield.
