Why Germany Will End Their 16 Year Wait For a Trophy.
Schweinsteiger and Khedira modernize the defensive midfielder role to turn into providers, passers and real engines that keep the German midfield ticking over. Podolski, Ozil, Muller and add an attacking threat down the left, centre and right respectively. Gomez is the best striker and finisher in Europe at this current time, and with three goals to his name already in the competition, it’s going to take a big effort from elsewhere to stop him scoring and him not winning golden boot.
The Germans have the full package, a midfield that defends and attacks, a defence that is solid and a goalscorer upfront. Joachim Low has got it spot on against two tricky teams. The strength and depth is also very impressive; Gotze, Kroos and Klose are three of many capable options who have to watch from the sidelines. They turn up the heat when big occasions rise and unlike previous years, the Germans may finish off what they have started.
6 points out of 6, Germany barring a miracle will qualify to the quarters and look certain to win their group. Group A runners up Greece will face the Germans in the quarter final, a very winnable tie. Spain, Italy, France, England could cause problems later on in the tournament but Germany will feel confident and why not, they’ve had a great start.
