4) Germany need to look ahead now
Germany’s world cup stars of 2014 looked weary at this year’s championships. Mesut Ozil was average in all the games he played , and only scored once in the entire tournament. Their top scorer in Brazil , Muller also had a tournament to forget and could not register a goal against his name. The bright side however is that Germany had 6 players under the age of 22 in their squad and Joachim Loew’s men must now look forward to defend their title in Russia in two years’ time.
