Team profile: Germany and their winning chances
Germany is one of the many favourites to win in the upcoming European Championships. The squad has been named by coach Joachim Low and they are eager to try and secure their chances for another title run.
Entering Low’s final run with the team, Germany is faced with a lot of questions as to how they will make their roster work in the tourney. There are many claims that the squad has little chance against many other contenders.
Teams such as Belgium, France, Spain and Portugal are all ringing the momentum bell. They have been making a lot of noise so far and it looks like they pose a serious threat to Germany’s chances in the contest.
While Germany has enjoyed club success in 2020, the coming European tourney might be a bigger job for them. Germany is home to many great football players in the world. Bayern Munich’s run in the Club World Cup shows that Germans have what it takes to win.
Low is known as one of the best brilliant minds in the sport, and he did a great job of putting up a strong roster for Germany’s run in the European Championships.
With the likes of Timo Werner, Serge Gnabry, and Leroy Sane making a return to lead the charge, Germany should be a strong contender to beat in their offence. The trio proved that they can play well. Both Gnabry and Sane were crucial in Bayern’s run, while Werner has found his place with Chelsea this season.
Werner is the man for Chelsea’s success in the 2020-21 season. Now that he has led the team to the Champions League final, it is easy to expect that he can pull Germany up to success.
The trio will surely deal a lot of damage on the offensive end. Germany does a great job of running a fast-paced attack, and these three players have done that well in a lot of games.
Playmaking and defence
Toni Kroos, Robin Gosens, Ilkay Gundogan, and Lukas Klostermann headline the middle lane for Germany. They are very fast players who can set up the big plays for the team while running down the lane.
Both Kroos and Gundogan will surely take the top role. Kroos is a very special player who’s been critical in Madrid’s run this season. He is one of the main reasons why Karim Benzema has scored a lot for the team.
On the other hand, Gundogan will keep his role the same way that he works for Manchester City. They are also in the final of the UCL, and he could clearly make a huge impact for Germany whether it would be scoring the ball or even dishing out assists.
Antonio Rudiger, Niklas Sule, and Matthias Ginter are all known as defensive geniuses. They have the ability to track down and force a stop on many attacking players. To top the defensive side, Manuel Neuer’s sole spot in the goalpost is still a huge boost for the team as the keeper stays on the prowl.
Germany is eager to win and show the world that they can still own Europe’s biggest tourney even with the odds against them. With the final roster for Germany now at the ready, it is easy to expect that the team will find its way to the top of the Group Stages as quickly as it can.
