Germany, the defending champions of the FIFA World Cup have announced their provisional 27-man squad for the tournament to be held from June 14 – July 15 in Russia this year.
As was expected, the announced names include stars like Sami Khedira, Toni Kroos and Thomas Muller. The amazing goalkeeper Manuel Neuer is also expected to return to the squad (after recovering from an injury) alongside a healthy bunch of youngsters like Plattenhardt, Leroy Sane and Nils Petersen.
Let’s acquaint you with the 2 German stars you must definitely watch out in the upcoming FIFA World Cup. In fact, you can also back them in the World Cup betting markets as many reputed World Cup tips’ websites are predicting them to make a solid impact in the tournament.
Counted amongst the most dangerous and in-form strikers in the football world today, the 22-year old player who represents Red Bull Leipzig is well-known for his physical prowess and amazing finishing skills. He would have his task cut out against some of the most experienced opposition defences. His fans have major expectations from him and expect him to carry his good form into the tournament.
The young German forward has already scored 47 Bundesliga goals and FIFA World Cup would be just the right platform for him to make a global impact. Having had 2 assists and 3 goals under his belt, Timo Werner was also awarded the Golden Boot at the FIFA Confederations Cup in 2017. He wowed everyone with his skills in that tournament, particularly in the match against Cameroon. He is also presently the youngest player to have appeared in 150 Bundesliga games, apart from being the youngest player to have scored a brace while playing for Germany.
He’s a prodigy and is excellent with even his back to the goal. As Thomas Muller, Leroy Sane and Mesut Ozil are all expected to get a start, Werner might have to warm the bench for some time. Quite like Gotze who grabbed headlines all over the world when he scored the World Cup winning goal for Germany, Werner is expected to be the X-Factor for the German team this time!
The Manchester City striker has had a very good stint in England owing to his trickery, excellent vision and quick feet. He had 15 assists and 10 goals this season and played a key role in Carabao Cup and League trophies. Leroy Sane would be all geared up to make a mark in the FIFA World Cup too.
With big names like Mesut Ozil, Toni Kroos and Leon Goretzka featuring in the midfield, it would be interesting to see if Leroy can really make a mark, and ensure a regular starting spot in the Germany’s World Cup games.
Voted as the PFA ‘Young Player of the Year’ in 2017-18 season, Leroy Sane’s panache and pace are expected to add a great deal of guile and creativity to the German team which is already full of superstars!
