Germany to play Armenia in last World Cup warmup
BERLIN (AP) — Germany will play Armenia in its last World Cup warmup in Mainz on June 6, the day before departing for Brazil.
The German football federation says proceeds from the national side’s first game in Mainz will go to charity.
Germany has two wins from two games against Armenia, 5-1 away in a World Cup qualifier in 1996 and 4-0 in the return game the following year.
At least one Armenian player will be familiar to many of the German players. Henrikh Mkhitaryan plays his club football with Borussia Dortmund.
Germany also has World Cup warmups lined up against Chile, Poland and Cameroon.
