The DFB team comes into this tournament as one of the most successful teams in the international football scene, and it’s easy to know why! They have won the FIFA World Cup on four (4) occasions, 1 time European Championship winners and a Confederation Cup champion. This will be their 19th appearance in FIFA World Cup, the second highest after Brazil (21). No surprise bookmakers have tipped Germany as one of the favorites to win it all in this years World Cup.
Nevertheless, there is no hiding behind the curtain about Germany’s recent performances. The dark clouds started in 2018 World Cup, Russia, when they failed to move past the group stage, followed by their elimination at the round of 16 at the Euro 2020 by England and their most recent flop in the UEFA Nations League, finishing 3rd, behind Italy and Hungary.
Yet, there is so much to fear about Germany. Hansi Flick can count on his star-studded squad to change the narrative in this years tournament. He has at his disposal the likes of Thomas Muller, Serge Gnabry, Joshua Kimmich, Leroy Sane and the young Jamal Musiala, who on a good day, should get Germany to a good start.
Here comes Japan, the best team in Asia after winning the Asian Cup on 4 occasions, more than any other side in Asia. They have never missed a World Cup tournament ever since they qualified in 1998, with this being their 7th World Cup. This side have reached the knockout stage in 3 tournaments (2002, 2010, 2018) and the only Asian side to best match European teams.
However, Japan finds themselves in a group of European top teams, Germany and Spain, which could make their World Cup experience an uphill task. Even though, they are not strangers to their first match opponents, Germany, they have to be at a whole different level to diffuse the threads.
Hajime Moriyasu will be counting on the experienced names among his squad to make the difference against Germany’s stars. And players like Takehiro Tomiyasu, Takefusa Kubo and Takumi Minamino will step up to make sure their slim chance in group E counts.
