Toni Kroos, Sami Khedira, Ilkay Gündogan and Emre Can – Germany’s finest midfielders are in Champions League action this week! Who has the best World Cup chances?
Germany's loss to Mexico in their World Cup opener was no fluke. They were out-run, out-thought and out-fought by their opponents. The display poses Joachim Löw serious questions about some of his most trusted players.
Reigning world champions Germany suffered defeat in their opening game of the World Cup 2018. Mexico top Group F after clinching a narrow, but well-deserved, 1-0 win courtesy of Hirving Lozano's first-half goal.
Germany players Mesut Özil and Ilkay Gündogan have been criticized for meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Both are of Turkish heritage, but chose to represent Germany in international football.
The Champions League returns on Tuesday, with Bayern Munich the only Bundesliga team left standing. But there's plenty of German interest, with four of the country's top central midfielders clashing in the next two days.
