Allsportspk presents 3 main areas where Germany needs to improve in order to win the league.
#3 Need Of A Playmaker
Official retirement and probably no chances of return for Germany’s reliable play-maker, Mesut Ozil, will force Joachim Low to include a playmaker in the squad who can take up Ozil’s place. Regardless of how much criticism Ozil gets, when he is removed from the pitch, the flaws in the midfield become obvious.
Moreover, the absence of inventiveness in the midfield without Ozil is clear, and the forward players will surely miss him. Be that as it may, one player who fill the giant void left by Ozil, is none other than the midfield maestro Toni Kroos, who can willfully take up Ozil’s part of play-making.
Adding to the play-making issues, an absence of reliable wingers for the Die Mannschaft, was also one of the sole reasons as to why they completed goalless in 2 of 3 World Cup group stage matches.
Any semblance of Reus and Draxler could not start assaults, and neither could they create goal scoring possibilities; in short, they were no place near their best.
However, this problem might just be solved with the inclusion of Leroy Sane who is deservedly back in the German squad. And, starting Sane in the initial playing line-up will help Germany to look better in the assaulting parts of the match.
