Germany has won the Euro`s a total of three times along with the World Cup four times. Euro 2016 betting at William Hill for tournament winner is 4.50 for German team. In qualifying for the Euro’s 2016, they did not look like one of the great German teams we have seen in the past. The Republic of Ireland beat them 1 – 0 and when they faced England in a friendly warm-up match, they lost the game at 3 – 2.
Germany’s Euro Group C
The Germans have been lucky yet again with the teams that they have been drawn against. They will face Ukraine, Ireland, and Poland which are matches that they should be able to gain three points in and qualify for the knockout stages.
The charismatic German manager Joachim Low believes that his side will be crowned champion of the Euros due to the players hunger to win it.
The first match that Germany plays in the Euro’s 2016 is on the 12th of June against the Ukraine. Not many teams win the World Cup and Euro`s consecutively but the team are desperate to add it to their trophy cabinet to prove they are one of the best generations in German football.
The results between the game been played against Northern Ireland and Poland along with the German result will play a big part in determining the approach to their next game. The German’s side is the best passers in the group and should dominate possession in all the matches. They may be vulnerable to the counter attack, so when they play against Poland they will need to keep an eye on one of the world’s best striker Robert Lewandowski for the whole 90 minutes. If they can win both their opening games they should qualify for the knockout stages.
The last international team that managed the double of winning the World Cup and Euro`s was Spain. That team is seen as probably the best to ever grace the international scene. The Germany boss Low desperately wants to emulate that to get the recognition he and his team deserve.
The core of the German team is built up around bases of the best players from Bayern Munich. They are rated as the third best team in the world behind Barcelona and Real Madrid. Having many of players that are used to each other’s game is a huge advantage in international football. With the German core being made up of one of the greatest teams in the world, it gives that a major advantage over their competitors.
