BERLIN [url=]Nyheim Hines Hat[/url] , Aug. 31 (Xinhua) -- Matthias Wissmann, president of the Association of the German Automotive Industry (VDA) will be replaced under pressure from leading car executives, the Redaktionsnetzwerk Deutschland (RND) reported Thursday.

According to RND, the personnel change is to take place following national elections and the International Automotive Exhibition in Frankfurt in September. The process is being coordinated by Daimler Chief Executive Officer Dieter Zetsche and is motivated by a desire for a new approach to the diesel emissions and cartel scandals which have engulfed the industry.

Wissmann and Zetsche have clashed publicly over allegations of illicit collusion between carmakers. Wissmann demanded a change in corporate culture, as well as a "zero mistake tolerance" in response to related revelations in German media, leading Zetsche to express his "surprise" over the VDA leader's comments.

Political and business representatives have both voiced fears that the automotive industry's current woes could cause long-standing reputational damage to German manufacturing as a whole.

"Made in Germany is a brand name and cannot be associated with fraud and deception," Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere (CDU) warned in the newspaper Heilbronner Stimme on Thursday.

Nevertheless, the CDU politician rejected calls for general driving bans as a means to lower nitrogen oxide pollution levels in cities. Carmakers are worried about the potential implementation of such measures which have been proposed in cities such as Munich and Stuttgart.

Wissmann has held the position of VDA chief for over 10 years. The former CDU minister's contract was prolonged for another two years as recently as November 2016.

Nowgoal Pick: France @ 1.95.
France: A gift from Lloris ( Recent Form: D W L W L )
In the previous qualifying games for Russia 2018, France was able to join the good performances of the home European Championship 2016 and was undefeated until the fifth round. The results and achievements indicated an early qualification. Now the French had to accept a setback against Sweden. In Stockholm, the Equipe Tricolore gave a lead from the hand and was ultimately defeated by a mistake by goalkeeper Hugo Lloris as a loser from the pitch. In stoppage time, the keeper became the tragic figure of the game. After an unsuccessful dribble of the goalkeeper, the Swede Toivonen took the ball from a distance of 50 meters away from the French goalkeeper. As a result, the French national team was at least in second place in the group and must continue to fight for participation in the World Cup in Russia. However, the French national team was well aware of this defeat. At the beginning of June, France still played a friendly match against Paraguay. The team did not have any problems, with three goals from Oliver Giroud 5-0 against the South Americans. Against England it is now next to Prestige also to shake off the defeat suffered in Sweden and to join the successes of the last months. The coach Didier Deschamps is expected to come up with a changed master formation, but the squad is of high quality. Sweden stars like N'Golo Kanté, Kylian Mbappé and Alexandre Lacazette were on the bench.

England: Hart gave two goals to Scotland ( Recent Form: W D L W D )
After England came out surprisingly against Iceland at the European Championships in the Round of 16, with a weak performance, there was great disappointment at the performance shown. In the current qualifying for the World Cup 2018, the English have made a much better figure so far, so the Three Lions in the qualification group F are still ranked first in this group after six games with 14 points. In the last qualifying match against Scotland, however, the team could not convince again. With a "last minute hit" by Harry Kane, they were able to avert a defeat in this derby. Although the English were the better team over long stretches, the three Lions came to the brink of a defeat due to two free-kickers. The coach Gareth Southgate can look back on a very good squad for the friendly match against France. Like the French national team, England has a wide and high quality squad, which could lead to some changes in the starting match in the coming game. Jesse Lingard, Raheem Sterling and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain came from the bank in the game against Scotland and can be an option for the first team against France.

After all, this friendly game is more than just a test match. Both nations will try to smooth the waves and not get into a downward spiral. We think that in this duel only nuances will decide about victory or defeat. The home advantage will be a decisive factor. We are also of the opinion that the substitute bank of France qualitatively still higher than that of England. The Champions League finalists Mbappé and Lemar, the players of the season 201617 from the English Premier League N'Golo Kanté, the Supertalent from Dortmund Ousmane Dembélé or even the goalkeeper Alexandre Lacazette sat in the game against Sweden only on the bench. The recent direct duels between France and England suggest a victory from England, but say very little about the current constitution of the teams in national teams.
