Further Reading on the German Side at the 2018 FIFA World Cup

After draw of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Germany coach Joachim Löw is confronted with a harder difficulty in choosing competent footballers to play the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. Although there are many praising words on the eminent team, let’s analyze the condition by ourselves, and forecast the several line-ups on the basis of footballers’ characteristics and advantages.

Line-up One

Choosing seven winners of World Cup and many youths of Bayern Munich, the team is one possibility for Löw to utilize. Those footballers health condition are in a good status and can run on sports field at any time.

After analyzing energy of footballers and reading of game, Joshua Kimmich may become a ready-made substitute of the former team-mate Philipp Lahm. In the recent days, Kimmich was praised as a world-class footballer by the Germany coach Joachim Löw. Jonas Hector of Cologne has consolidated his ranking and position as the first choice left-back since the accomplishing of his first appearance in November 2014.

The backbone of the team will be selected from winners of the 2014 World Cup: a competent defensive trio may consist of the core captain Manuel Neuer, Mats Hummels and Jerome Boateng; last season’s two beginners Kroos and Sami Khedira played with Real Madrid and Juventus respectively in Champions League are suitable for the places of midfielders; Thomas Müller may take the role he played as usual; and Mesut Özil will probably keep his place for his quality and experience.

The amazing recent momentum of Timo Werner for RB Leipzig will help Timo Werner to becoming the first-choice striker thoroughly; the position of Timo Werner may be threatened by same amazing performances of Mario Gomez and Sandro Wagner. In case of continuing injuries of Marco Reus, it is perhaps that Müller will be designated as the long striker.

Line-up Two

In spite of the only winner Julian Draxler of 2014 FIFA World Cup, this combination perhaps stands for some of new talent players and some representative footballers on the comeback trail from injury like Ilkay Gündogan.

The eminent run for Schalke of Leon Goretzka means he is also competing for the position of first-choice midfield. Besides him, one of reliable midfielders is possibly to rest on the shoulders of Sebastian Rudy: the Bayern Munich’s football player has cut a striking figure in qualifying, not merely for the sake of a stunning goal against Northern Ireland by him.

Draxler, the captain of winning team at the Confederations Cup, is also a possible candidate of the first-choice side. Taking Reus’ injuries into consideration, Gomez could contribute more experience and intelligence for the bright future at the 2018 FIFA World Cup despite his current injuries.

In case of the unavailability of Hector, Marvin Plattenhardt may success the position of left-back with a great possibility; taking the advantages of free kick, Hertha Berlin will be impressive going forward as his outstanding talent in defence. Besides, there is less possibility for Niklas Süle because of shortage of claims. 


Prediction on Germany Team at the 2018 FIFA World Cup

Line-up Three

This line-up includes three winners at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, such as Mario Götze, scorer of the winner in the final! If you want supports of Germany’s current overall strength deeply, what about this: the third possible consequence of the Germany team at the 2018 FIFA World Cup (Mario Götze, Shkodran Mustafi and Benedikt Höwedes). So far, impressive performances on sports fields of Bernd Leno make him keeping ahead of Kevin Trapp, who failed to keep his place at Paris Saint-Germain. Since transfer of Jeremy Toljan, a footballer ahead of Leno, the excellent footballer has become the first choice of full-back queue; Jonathan Tah joins in the queue of back line.

Former Schalke Höwedes hopes he can return from injuries and impress in Serie A in this period, winning opportunities for himself to play the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Having considered that he’s just made a comeback with Dortmund, Julian Weigl will possibly been put into line-up one or line-up two if he came back at full fitness. Things will be similar for Mario Götze, who has cut a striking figure in the final against Argentina in Rio in July 2014. By the advantages of his practical experiences and eminent performances, he got the attention of many people, shining on sports fields with many team mates with BVB.

Although having experienced numerous matches and ordeals, Löw is also a follower of Amin Younes, the former Borussia Mönchengladbach who has offered the choice of playing with a talented winger. Julian Brandt also joins in the Leverkusen connection, and he is able to promote much more international recognition if he returned to his club level.

From being included earlier in this year, the Gladbach skipper owns countless Champions League experience and inscribed his name in the mind of people by winning the Confederations Cup final in the summer.

Line-up Four

The line-up consists of both young beginners and excellent veterans. Maximilian Philipp would be pushed to the most striking position in short time, and Sandro Wagner also aspires for a plot in the team. It is not necessary to think over the feasibility of the fourth line-up until the publishing of absentees’ list. Every footballer of the team survived in 2014 is a representative of his country. The line-up emphasize the magnitude of defensive strength by including two reliable center-backs – Willi Orban and Ginter. Both of them are less likely to be chose by Löw, in spite of their efforts with any preservation.

Because of a good start to life at club Dortmund, Kerem Demirbay and Mahmoud Dahoud would earn their first cap for the first time shortly after rather than later. There are also many potential footballers who could be composed into the team if they held the good momentum on football fields on the basis of good start. Although the coach of Germany would not inclined to take risks, it’s probably for him to reward an excellent player impressing domestically. Let’s looking forward the looming of 2018 FIFA World Cup and the figures covered with the latest Germany football kits.
