Germany Preview, Predictions, Players and Stats

Germany are defending champions and they are in good shape to defend their title after going unbeaten in all games in 2017. They are highly motivated to lift the trophy second time in a row and all players will do their best in Russia this summer. The World Cup holders have already collected a trophy in Russia on Confederations Cup last summer. Here's everything you need to know about the team:

Germany play in fine fettle and all expect from them to fight for the World Cup finals this summer. They are one of the main pretenders to reach World Cup Finals and anything short of the final will be seen as a failure for this talented team. Their biggest strength is the collective and well-organised playing. They are looking to become the first country to defend their title since Brazil after 50 years.

Germany Prediction and Expectations on World Cup 2018

Germany are top favourites to win the first place in Group F and all expect an easy job in group phase for Germany. But players don't think so and they will play very cautious. Their key battle for the top spot in group is match against Mexico in Matchday 1 and all players are highly motivated to pick up all three points here. They have played very well in qualification games, with 10 wins from 10 games and goal record of 43:4. So we expect from them to hammer South Korea and Sweden.
