[WORLD CUP 2014 FRIENDLIES] Germany, which the USA will play at the World Cup, opened the World Cup warm-up schedule with a 0-0 tie against Poland. There is not a lot to put into the result. The Germans were playing without players from their two best teams, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, and Coach Joachim Loew gave 12 players their first caps.

Of the 30 players on his short list, Loew was missing 20. The average age of his starting lineup was 21.5.

"We had a lot of newcomers tonight," Loew said. "When you have one or two, they are helped by more experienced players. But they still did really well, were well organized and disciplined."
