GERMANY BEST 11 - By Ranabeer Chhabra
Germany is a great footballing nation they won the 2014 world cup and reached the semis of the 2016 Euros, even though they showed as much fight as Logan Paul against KSI in the 2018 world cup they are still considered favs for euro 2021. So I will be giving my best 11 for Germany. Plz give yours in the suggestions It was hard to decide a clear formation for Germany considering that they have played quite frequently with a back 3 sometimes a back 4 but I am going with a back 3 considering they are playing in the group of death against forwards like Ronaldo and Mbappe they sure need all the defensive reinforcements they can get. So I am going with a 3-4-3 which will turn into a 3-3-1-3.
Manuel Neuer Manuel Neuer starts in goal, even though Neuer has had a troubled season this time round with Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga just like the full Bayern backline he has struggled a little, but when it comes to the champions league. Neuer is amazing, his performance against PSG a clear reflection of that. Ter Stegen is a big loss for Germany, even though he had as much chance of starting over Neuer as Timo werner has of scoring a goal i.e not a chance is rats hell. Because quite frankly Joachim Low thinks that his legendary no. 1 can do no wrong, cutting Leroy sane from his squad in 2018 just to put a half injured neuer in nets. That did so much good for them didn’t it. The 3 centre backs Antonio rudiger was a shoe in he has been quite frankly brilliant since tuchel arrived and I think that he will start in the middle of a back 3 which is where he has played for tuchel recently. With him Emre Can has to be in there he is a great player and Joachim low has an obsession with this man I wont be surprised if they were sharing the same room, I mean he has even picked him at Left back for gods sake so consider his place pretty much sealed. The third centre back was a harder decision but seeing that the last time Germany played a top team in spain Nicolas Sule showed the mobility of a broken dishwasher so I am pretty confident that picking Matthijs Ginter is the right choice, I mean he is not brilliant but not bad so a bang average defender from Borussia Monchengladbach. At left wing back- Robin Gosens Robin Gosens has been on fire this season 18 goal involvements from Left back is insane, he is a shoe in, in the starting 11 and he will add some much needed creativity to the mostly defensive team CDM- Joshua Kimmich I mean this guys gonna be a legend, nothing else needs to be said just put him in the squad and let him do his thing. RCM- Okay so I am playing goretk za as a right midfielder, I mean yeah he is a CM but I am playing him as an inverted left wing back he will basically be a midfielder and he has already played in this position for Germany I mean the depth and quality in midfield for Germany Is amazing. Goretzka was closely fought in midfield by toni kross but I went with the more defensive player in the end considering the teams they are playing. AM- I am going with Gundogan with this one for a goal threat from attacking midfield he will be playing at no. 10 scoring the goals that turbo timo cant but for that he will have to finish everything because werners shot hit the target all the time if the target are the cardboard fans. And Considering Gundogan was the top scorer in an insane man city team that is in touching distance of winning the fake treble I mean Nobody will do what we did in 99 do you hear me. So right my front three is going to be quite hard to chose with a wealth of options but I am sticking with Leroy Sane, Serge Gnabbry and Thomas Muller… So I am playing Thomas muller as more of a false 9 sort of player as he has had a great season with Bayern Munich getting the most assists in the B-Liga once again, at the wings I am going with his teammates at club and country Leroy sane and Gnabry who are both insane talents, they are fast, decisive and very influential players for the Germans. Timo Werner, the biggest meme material on the planet has been much better than people make of him, he and Chelsea teammate Havertz can come on as influential subs. Also Kevin Volland who has had a good season with Monaco will give something different to Joachim Low and might as well turnout to be a plan b. SO MY STARTING 11 IS Neuer- GK Rudiger- CB Emre Can- CB Ginter- CB Gosens- Lmf Kimmich- CDM Goretka- Rmf Gundogan- AMF Thomas Muller- False 9 Leroy sane- LW Gnabbry- RW
