Germany - World Cup 2018

You are here

If there is one thing opponents should be wary of the defending World Cup champions, it's that the Germans won last year’s Confederations Cup without Jerome Boateng, Matts Hummels, Mesut Ozil, Manuel Neuer, Thomas Muller, Mario Gotze, Ilkay Gundogan, Leroy Sane, Marco Reus, Tony Kroos, and Sami Khedira.

The talent on this team runs extremely deep, such so that it is almost scary. While many naysayers claimed the quarter-final elimination that Germany suffered in the Euro 2016 tournament meant that the team was on a downswing, the fact of the matter is that it only seems to have made them stronger.

Germany, A World Cup Giant

The defenders of the World Cup Trophy will be looking to tie Brazil for the most cup wins in history in Russia 2018. Germany will also seek the bragging rights of being the greatest football nation in history should they win this year’s trophy.

Not only has Germany won the World Cup four times, but they have also played in the finals on four different occasions and won third place on another four.

Germany’s Road To The World Cup

Qualification for Germany went as expected; as winners of Group C, they went 10-0-0 (tying a record), scoring 43 (also tying a record) goals and yielding only 4. That run included wins of 8-0, 7-0, 6-0, and 5-1.

It is the third time in a row that Germany has won all of their qualifying matches heading into the World cup (again, a record). When all was said and done, twenty-one different Germans scored goals in the qualifying games.

How Does The Germany World Cup 2018 Squad Stack Up?

Germany has such a deep pool of talent that it’s hard for Head Coach Joachim Low to settle on his starting eleven. With so many players to choose from, the internal competition to secure a spot on the roster probably drives these players harder than a desire to win the World Cup.

It is fairly safe to assume that Mueller and Timo Werner will get time upfront while Ozil, Reus, Sane, Gotze, and Julien Draxler will take part in the attacking midfield with Kroos, Khedira, Leon Goretzka, and Sebastian Rudy likely seeing time in the Central Midfield.

On defense, expect to see Boateng and Hummels play the same roles as they did in 2014 with perhaps Jonas Hector helping out. Niklas Sule, who plays alongside several national team members at Bayern-Munich is likely a shoe-in as well.

Germany Odds To Win World Cup 2018

Germany remains among the favorites to win the World Cup at 9/2 odds. They should pass through as the winners of Group F where they have 4/13 odds to win the group among Mexico, Sweden, and South Korea.
