The Outlook

Germany has it all. They feature outstanding defense led by arguably the world’s greatest goalkeeper and captain Manuel Neuer, a player that has put his own signature on the role of the sweeper-keeper as he stays out high and rushes far from the goal to deal with any potential danger.

The Germans also feature a bunch of elite midfielders like the blossoming Leon Goretzka, but none may be as good as Toni Kroos. he’s helped lead Real Madrid to a pair of Champions League titles as well as last season’s La Liga.

Germany comes in as one of the favorites at the 2018 World Cup Betting Odds.

Kroos is known for his passing accuracy and ability to both, play excellent midfield defense or play as an attacking player on offense. Make no mistake about it, Kroos can control a game and never seems to make the costly turnover.

Up front, Germany can turn to stars like Thomas Muller and the blossoming Timo Werner to score whenever and from wherever. Muller is absolutely masterful whether shooting or creating plays for his teammates. Werner is a flat-out scoring machine that is just scratching the surface of his potential, another couple of reasons to be considered one of the 2018 World Cup betting favorites.

Last but not least, Germany has one of the best coaches in the world today in Joachim Low. He’s been a part of the national team since 2004 (first as an assistant and then head coach), so he’s long on International experience and can lead from an area self-confidence with his contract recently getting extended until 2022. Low implements a team style of play in which his players share the ball as well as any team on the planet and take advantage of their opponent’s weaknesses, whatever they may be!
