There is no exaggeration that everyone would be watching the team Germany with much curiosity to see how the team boasting of seven world cups so far would be performing this summer. This evokes more interest and enthusiasm to evaluate the defenders of the cup. Will the German team be able to repeat the feat of capturing the cup again at the 21st World Cup scheduled in Russia during June-July 2018?
There is no doubt the task of a German coach Joachim Löw would be daunting in listing the probable players for the play at the international event.
The lineup could be toned up with by injecting youthful players like Bayern Munich’s Joshua Kimmich and RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner, albeit if they are medically fit. It is for sure the backbone trio – the Bayem core of Captain Manuel Neuer, Jerome Boateng, and Mats Hummels in the defensive level would be an asset to the team. At the same time, you have the starters like Sami Khedira and Toni Kroos who also displayed startling performance in the last season’s Champions League final.
There is no doubt the recent performance of Leipzig was commendable as the first choice for striking.
You cannot undermine the remarkable performance of Leon Horetzka at the Confederations Cup, which might bestow him a berth in the first choice midfield and close behind him is Sebastian Rudy with equally impressive performance.
The combination of the trio Mario Gotze, Shkodran Mustafi and Benedikt Howedes might also prove lethal to the rivals. You will find that Howedes is very comfortable either at right or center back for sending knee-jerk action if he could ensure his fitness. Probably, the blue-eyed boy of the coach Amin Younes could, in fact catapult into action for international recognition.
Sven Ulreich also displayed an impressive performance, and the drastic improvement on the field might bring a miracle change in the ensuing season if he finds a place in the final list.
The young player possessing lot of potential is Maximilian Philipp, who could also make to the list of probable player only if he is able to overcome the major knee injury. This would be indeed a reward for an impressive display at the domestic events.
The defending champions of the world cup with a record of 43 goals behind them coupled with the recent Confederations Cup title, the coach Joachim Low has to make a judicious decision in short-listing probable players for the final squad.
