The German international took to Instagram to deliver his message, hoping for a peaceful and successful tournament.
France and Germany are among the favourites to lift the trophy this summer, with both teams boasting an absolutely fantastic squad. You can see just how much quality they have based on the players that didn’t make it into the squads, with the likes Karim Benzema, Marco Reus, Alexandre Lacazette ane many other fantastic players failing to make the cut.
France will be confident of topping their group, with Albania and Romania real minnows. Switzerland will almost certainly put up a real fight, but Giroud and Koscielny will be hoping for a strong group stage.

Germany will also know they are more than capable of topping their own group, despite Poland, Ukraine, and Northern Ireland likely to put up more of a fight.
