GER-W vs ENG-W Dream11 Prediction Team: Germany look to make massive strides up the table with Great Britain set to offer little resistance their way
Two sides, both defeated by Netherlands in their previous encounter and both facing off against each other come Friday for one shot at redemption. While losing to the world champions is hardly anything to be ashamed off, they were two completely different defeats, ones which emphasised the differing fortunes these units have suffered this season.
Losing 2-0, Great Britain were not only hammered in their seventh place but the defeat yet again epitomised what a misdemeanour their season has been. They were rendered obsolete and redundant with the Netherlands sitting in firm control of the match right from the opening minute.
Elsewhere, Germany’s 2-1 defeat was a much more competitive and feisty affair. They gave a good account of themselves against Netherlands, showing immense fighting spirit to comeback into the encounter and keep things interesting till the final minute.
The first leg of this clash was as one sided as they get with Germany running the show through the match. Well in control and on top for the four quarter, a 2-0 win had seen Germany run all over England who were not allowed even the slightest whiffs of an entry towards their goal.
Taking on a side who have massively dwindled and failed to impress, Germany are but the heavy favourites to win this. A stunning upset in the unlikeliest of outcomes with England contributing next to nothing to the league with their lacklustre showings.
While the home support while vociferously back their team as ever and leave no stone unturned in pushing them on rampantly, Great Britain’s tentative nature of play is way too big an abolition. Germany might just win this along with keeping a cleansheet for themselves.
Goal-Keeper for GER-W vs ENG-W Dream11
With England’s 14 goals being the second lowest number of goals scored in the league, the likelihood of the Germans shutting them out completely is a massive one. However we are going to in with England’s goal-keeper Sabbie Heesh given the resolute face she displayed while facing a barrage of shots.
Defenders for GER-W vs ENG-W Dream11
Time to pile on the German bastion here and Janne, Viktoria and Nike all come in for us. Not only are they one of the finest defensive units in the tournament but up against a paper thing English attack, the points tally is going to make for a ravishing read from them at the end of the day.
No matter how poor England have been, Gissele Anly has always been more than willing to age a lone battle for them. She’s the fulcrum of a nonexistent defence, using her abilities at set plays more than exquisitely to get herself on the end of penalty corners as well. Hollie is going to partner her for us.
Midfielders for GER-W vs ENG-W Dream11
With chances few and between here, we are going to pick just the three midfielders from both the sides. From Germany it will be Rebecca Grote and Pia making their way into our Dream 11 side. The English pick sees Sarah Jones being selected to come and indulge us in her myriad display.
Forwards for GER-W vs ENG-W Dream11
The one player who comes in purely based on current form is Charlotte. She’s taken over Germany’s attacking duties perfectly, proving herself to be their mainstay and there is just no chance we are going to ignore her. Lena Micheel, the star performer against Netherlands also comes in to play alongside her.
Captain And Vice-Captain
All German for us in this facet in the wake of their performances and the need to come out of this with a win. Nike is our captain while Charlotte is going to be given the vice-captain’s status.
