The FIFA World Cup 2022 will get underway on November 20, 2022. When we talk about predictions and FIFA World Cup winners, Germany is one team that always comes to mind. This team has always performed very well on the global stage. If nothing else, the team is full of entertainers. One can never forget how Germany defeated Brazil 7-1 in their own backyard. Over the years, the Germans have improved. Here is an in-depth look at the squad this time around.
FIFA World Cup 2022: Germany Football Team:
Manager: Hansi Flick
Forwards: Leroy Sane (Bayern Munich), Thomas Muller (Bayern Munich), Serge Gnabry (Bayern Munich), Kai Havertz (Chelsea), Youssoufa Moukoko (Dortmund),Karim Adeyemi(Borussia Dortmund).
Midfielders: Julian Brandt (Borussia Dortmund); Leon Goretzka (Bayern Munich); Ilkay Gundogan (Manchester City); Jamal Musiala (Bayern Munich), Niclas Fullkurg((Werder Bremen),Mario Gotze(Eintracht Frankfurt), Joshua Kimmich (Bayern Munich), Jonas Hoffman (Borussia Monchengladbach)
Defenders: Thilo Kehrer (PSG); Antonio Rudiger (Real Madrid); Niklas Sule (Borussia Dortmund); Lukas Klostermann (RB Leipzig); Nico Schlotterbeck (Borussia Dortmund), David Raum(Rb Liepzig), Armel Bella Kotchap(Southamthon FC),Mattahias Ginter(SC Frieburg),Christian Gunter((SC Freiburg).
Goalkeepers: Marc-Andre ter Stegen (Barcelona), Manuel Neuer (Bayern Munich), Kevin Trapp (Eintracht Frankfurt).
Toni, the center-back who impressed with Chelsea and has now moved to Real Madrid is an elite player. He has something that not every defender has, pace and vision it is. Add to it the elite stamina that he has got. He is always a good option for playing center-backs as he falls back during a counter-attack. He covers the length of the pitch in very less time. In aerial duals, Antonio wins most of the balls. His frame gives him an added edge. He has proven his mettle in the Premier League where the game’s pace is super fast.
From one defensive player to another. Joshua Kimmich is the best defensive midfielder that the world has seen in the past few years. Joshua has been a different animal. He has been making crazy runs across the pitch. He is the N’Golo Kante from Bayern Munich! Pep Guardiola has trained a monster in the form of Kimmich. His stamina and his strength give him an edge. He is not the quickest on the field but his sense of the game is elite. Kimmich tries to involve in the game as much as possible. Kimmich will be keen to dominate in the FIFA World Cup 2022.
Predictions for FIFA World Cup 2022:
The German team met with an upset in the last World Cup. They were knocked out in the Group Stage itself. Prior to that tournament, they were Champions in 2014. Keeping this and the current form in mind, I predict Germany will go to the quarter-finals of the FIFA World Cup 2022.
