Germany In World Cups
Germany has won 4 FIFA World Cups (the same as Italy) and one short of the record holders, Brazil with 5 FIFA World Cups. Germany is the defending champions having won the tournament in 2014 in Brazil. Miroslav Klose is Germany’s leading goal-scorer and all-time leading goal-scorer in World Cups with 16 goals across 4 World Cups (2002-2014).
Qualification (Russia 2018)
Germany won all of their 10 games in qualification scoring 43 goals (4.3 goals/game) and conceding only 4 goals throughout the group stage. The Czech Republic and Northern Ireland were among other teams in the group.
Odds On The World Cup 2018
Germany’s team for the 2018 World Cup is slightly inexperienced compared to the title-winning squad last time around. Germany will finish in the top-4 this tournament if they don’t manage to lift the World Cup. They have successfully managed to play in the quarter-finals in the last four World Cups.
The odds on Germany winning the World Cup is 5/1, closely followed by Brazil and France’s 6/1.
Timo Werner, the RB Leipzig striker is playing in a league of his own. Touted to replace Klose’s goal-scoring record, this will be the platform to achieve that feat.
Thomas Muller was joint-top-scorer in the qualification stage with 5 goals. He has been around for some time now although he’s only 28 years old. Thomas Muller has 10 goals in World Cup finals and is in 8th position in the all-time leading goalscorer in World Cups list.
Wagner is 29-years-old and was the joint top scorer (with Thomas Muller) in the group stage with 5 goals. Although a late bloomer, the Hoffenheim striker has plenty of potential for the German side this World Cup.
