France to host Germany in friendly in 2013

BY foxsports • January 13, 2012

France will host Germany in a friendly match next year to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Elysee Treaty.

The French football federation says the match will be played on Feb. 6, 2013, without saying where it will be held.

On Jan. 22, 1963, French President Charles de Gaulle and German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer signed the treaty to mark a lasting reconciliation between the countries.

France will play a friendly against Germany in Bremen next month.
