Germany National Team Preview and Odds to Win the Group G

Germany Football Soccer Team

Germany is one of the main contenders to win the 2014 World Cup. They will play in a tough Group G along with Portugal, Ghana and the United States. Even though their group is difficult, Germany is still listed as a big favorite in World Cup odds at BetPhoenix sportsbook. Let’s look at Germany and their odds to win Group G.

Germany is -200 to win Group G with Portugal the second choice. Ghana and the United States are longshots.

Germany is loaded with talent all over the field. They have Bastian Schweinsteiger and Sami Khedira in the middle with Mesut Ozil and Thomas Muller up front. Muller missed out on the semifinals four years ago at the World Cup because of suspension. He and Schweinsteiger are the two players that Germany can’t afford to lose.

Pressure on Joachim Low

The best winning percentage of any German manager is the 68% winning mark of Joachim Low. He is signed through 2016 but the pressure is on to win it all. He has been the manager for almost 10 years and with all of the talent at his disposal, Germany has not won a major title. Second place just isn’t going to cut it at the 2014 World Cup. "Naturally it is our goal to reach the pinnacle there. We will prepare ourselves like a world champion.” Low said, “I also think that we, because of the last four years, are among the favorites. We face up to this task and we put this pressure onto ourselves."

Germany rolled through qualifying as they scored 36 goals in 10 matches. Seven players scored three goals or more.

Germany has made the final seven times in the World Cup, winning the tit le three times. They finished second in 2002 and they were third in 2002 and in 2010. They have not won the World Cup since 1990.
