I'm astonished that Leroy Sane has been left out of Germany's 23-man squad!

He was the main reason that I backed Germany to win the World Cup!

Report 1st time poster June 4, 2018 12:47 PM BST
why astonished,even if he was picked ,the fact he was left out means the manager would have only used him if there were an injury crisis,manager doesn't fancy him and manager done ok in the past, just like England leaving Raheem behind some would say team would be better without him ,hardly going to be the difference between winning and losing world cup

Agree that would seem the most likely but seeing as he's picked only two strikers, think there's a chance that he plays a false number nine and Werner misses out

that's were your going wrong the idea is to pick the best team not the best players, most managers will be hoping 7,8 players never get on the pitch and will only play through injuries or things going wrong

The record of recent WC winners is dreadful.

France out first round without scoring
Brazil out in quarter finals (as faves iirc)
Italy out first round and finished below New ZealandCrazy
Spain out first round

One reason I could never back the Germans here. Think there is an element of players not being as hungry and also being selected on past glories

Report mesmerised June 4, 2018 1:52 PM BST
9 of the current German squad were in the 2014 squad but looking at that predicted first team, 8 of them won the World Cup in 2014, hungriest players then would be Werner if he starts and Khedira for missing the final.

Vardy barely played in qualies and can't see him starting any game bar the third group game if we were through and Southgate wanted to rest Kane, which is unlikely given he'll probably want to top the group. I'd doubt Vardy would be used v Germany or Brazil from the start given he didn't score v them in 3 friendlies when he played 70 minutes, will only be a bench player.

so if kane was injured,rashford might start up front,with wellbeck cover on the bench, the sort of thinking the german manager might have been doing when deciding to leave out sane ,unlike southgate picking vardy because he thinks he ought to although he doesn't fancy him
Report jed.davison June 4, 2018 1:59 PM BST
Please bear in mind we're talking about picking a team to play International football, and not Premier League football. So Vardy has to play, and if that means he has to play instead of Kane, so be it.
Report DIE LINKE June 4, 2018 2:03 PM BST
grayhawk, the poor chance conversion rates have been a concern for some time. Werner could be a sensation, but only time will tell. Mueller off form for what seems like years now. Three starters in Neuer, Boateng, Oezil aren't fully fit. Defence vulnerable to giving away a soft goal.

What you will get is a side that will cover more kilometres in a game against any other nation in the tournament. Particularly in the latter stages of tournos German sides kick on while better sides are out on their feet.

Sterling has played 2 of his best games for England in his last two starts.  Imo he's looked England's most threatening player.  I've been vocal in my opinion that he hasn't deserved his place for over 2 years, but right now I think he does.

they have the same agent, so there is that. but ofc it significantly diminishes the chances of making a deep run especially if Gundogan/Ozil get booed every time they touch the ball.

Aside from the Gundogan/Ozil issue the defence looked disorganised and completely lacking in pace against Saudi Arabia.  An average side would have put 2 past them, a quality side would have taken them to the cleaners.  I don't think they will get past the quarter finals.
