Joachim Low's side are on track to qualify for the tournament in Ukraine and Poland as they currently top Group A with 12 points from four games.

An arrangement has now been made for them to host the 1998 World Cup winners on 29th February, with a return game in France on 5th March 2014.

"Like the match against Italy (in February) and against Uruguay and Brazil later this year, we can compare ourselves against teams that will challenge us considerably," said Low.

"It is an attractive challenge especially at the start of the Euro 2012 year."

The German football federation also decided that if Germany and Netherlands qualify for the tournament their friendly on 11th November this year will be held in Hamburg.

Germany play Uruguay, who they beat in the third-place play-off at last year's World Cup, in May in Sinsheim. They will also host Brazil in August in Stuttgart.
