After Germany won their fourth World Cup title in nation’s history with fairly young team, most experts are expecting the team to be the favorite when Russia 2018 arrives.
After Germany won their fourth World Cup title in the nation’s history with a fairly young team, one would assume the team will be capable of challenging again.
Not only was Germany the best team in the tournament, they did it despite Marco Reus getting injured a week before the World Cup. The team has young talented players and can become a dynasty.
“I can imagine nothing better than continuing to work with this team,” coach Joachim Low told the German FA website.
“We celebrated a gigantic success in Brazil, but there are still further goals that we want to accomplish. The 2014 World Cup was a high point for all of us, but it was not an end point.”
Of course, Argentina is also another intriguing team; they made to the final for the first time in 24 years and were not able to close the deal. Striker Lionel Messi has won everything there is to win with his club, but he’s yet to prove the same with the national team, and getting back to the final in Russia will be his main objective.
Spain’s successful generation got older, and they need to bring young players to the national squad in order to be back on top; same goes to Netherlands, who’s yet to win their first World Cup title.
