After a summer of euphoria, Didier Deschamps' players didn't look ready against Germany in the teams' opening UEFA Nations League match, which ended in a goalless draw.

The goalkeepers are 15 years apart in age, with a chasm of experience and achievement separating them, but Areola has reason to feel let down after establishing himself as PSG's No. 1 last season.
