The Netherlands international says Die Mannschaft will be desperate to restore some pride after their 4-4 draw with Sweden

Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben believes the pressure is on Germany to get a result in Wednesday's friendly encounter.

The Netherlands and Die Mannschaft will go head to head at the Amsterdam Arena and the former Real Madrid man has tried his hand at mind games prior to the game.

"They are desperate to restore some pride," he told Ons Oranje.

"Germany are definitely under pressure after the 4-4 draw against Sweden, and their fans will be expecting some sort of result.''

Germany coach Joachim Low recognises the task his side face and says they are desperate to win the game in order to ressurect the feeling of positivity around the national side.

"We want to finish the year on a good note with a win. We will strive to win over our fans with a good performance, and hopefully the result will match," he said.

Germany will be without Bayern quartet Toni Kroos, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Mario Gomez and Jerome Boateng, as well as Madrid playmaker Mesut Ozil.

Oranje go into the fixture minus Wesley Sneijder and Robin van Persie, who both miss out through injury.
