Kick-off: 9.00pm local (8.00pm). Assistant referees: Sander van Roekel (Netherlands) Erwin Zeinstra (Netherlands) Fourth official: Daniele Orsato (Italy) Additional assistant referees: Pol van Boekel (Netherlands) Richard Liesveld (Netherlands) Reserve assistant referee: Elenito Di Liberatore (Italy) Man of the Match: Jérôme Boateng (Germany) Nine of the 18 games so far at Euro 2016 had been goalless at half-time but this was the first to end in a nil-nil draw. In an encounter more comparable to a game of chess than the earlier ferocious contests between these neighbouring countries, Germany rarely troubled the stout Polish defence. They probably came closest on 68 minutes when Lukasz Fabianski turned a well-struck effort from former Arsenal team-mate Mesut Ozil over the bar. This was only the fifth time that Germany had been held to a goalless draw in the European Championship finals but second time in the last four meetings with Poland that had finished without recording a goal. Both teams now had four points from their first two group games.
