Munich (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 14th Jun, 2021 ) :France defender Lucas Hernandez says his Bayern Munich team-mate Thomas Mueller is the German player the world champions need to subdue in Tuesday's Euro 2020 clash against Germany.
Hernandez sees the attacking midfielder as the threat the French defence needs to nullify.
"We know he's a good player, very, very intelligent.
"It will be up to us to block him a bit and do the work so that he doesn't show up too much in the game." Hernandez is relishing playing "away" at his home stadium when he runs out at Bayern's home.
"It's a beautiful stadium that I know well. There will be a lot of emotions because I've been playing there for two years now," he said.
"It's a pity that it won't be 100 percent full because of Covid-19," with a restricted crowd of 14,500 expected, "but for sure it will be a big game.
Benjamin Pavard, Coretin Tolisso and Kingsley Coman could all play alongside Hernandez for Les Bleus.
Bayern captain Manuel Neuer will skipper Germany with Joshua Kimmich, Serge Gnabry, Mueller and Niklas Suele also set to feature for the Mannschaft.
Hernandez has netted five goals in 62 games for Bayern, but is yet to score for Les Bleus in 25 internationals.
"It's true that I'm not a great goalscorer, it's not my strength," he admitted with a laugh.
"If I have the chance to score a goal, I would be happy."
