Germany squad is looking very well and strong, every single player that will play in the field and sit on the bench is worthy of attention and praise. Looking at it, it looks like Germany is truly ready to defend their time at Russia World Cup this year.
However, looking at their recent performances, the situation is far from perfect, much to Joachim Low’s and Germany fans’ dismay.
While Germany won every single qualification match and got their ticket with no real resistance, the last friendly matches decimated the team’s image as the unbreakable and perfect machine.
Germany Squad Football — World Cup 2018
Despite the fact that Low has tremendous experience in the World Cups and the team has a healthy amount of veteran players and brand new talents, Germany wasn’t able to win a single time for five matches in a row.
Maybe you’ll find the cause of that in the player line-up?
- Goalkeepers: Manuel Neuer, Kevin Trapp, Marc-André ter Stegen
- Defenders: Marvin Plattenhardt, Jonas Hector, Matthias Ginter, Mats Hummels, Niklas Süle, Antonio Rüdiger, Jérôme Boateng, Joshua Kimmich
- Midfielders: Sami Khedira, Julian Draxler, Toni Kroos, Mesut Özil, Leon Goretzka, Sebastian Rudy, Julian Brandt, İlkay Gündoğan
- Forward: Timo Werner, Marco Reus, Thomas Müller, Mario Gómez
Germany squad in the World Cup this year includes lots of new talented players, but the recent performance doesn’t imply that this was the best choice for the team.
