Germany (2/6)

Key Player: Ozil

Last World Cup Finish: Winners

Coming into the 2018 World Cup as defending champions, Germany will be looking to become only the third team in the history of the competition to win back to back tournaments. Their historic victory over Brazil last time round was a particular highlight of the competition and they will be hoping they can recreate the same team dynamic this time around.

Realistically speaking the team will likely line up similarly to last time round with a few notable losses. First, Bayern Munich and German National Team legend Phillip Lahm hung up his boots after the last tournament which would typically be a huge loss to any top team but luckily for the Germans they have a ready-made replacement in Joshua Kimmich who has shone this season for Bayern Munich. As well as Kimmich, Germany have quality players across the whole squad, from national team stalwarts such as Ozil, Muller, Khedira, Hummels and Neuer, they also have newcomers in the form of red-hot RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner, and FC Koln left-back Hector.

Germany have a reputation for turning up at international tournaments and are almost always a guaranteed feature in the semi-finals, but the question remains if they can go all the way again.
