And the Dutch lady is right. Süle should in all likelyhood be in the WC squad unless Howedes or maybe even Mustafi have an absolutely brilliant second half to the season.

Höwedes hasn't played a single game this season, and Mustafi only six, and hasn't torn the trees out for Germany. Orban is better than both of them right now and should be given a chance in the last two test games next year, in my opinion. Otherwise he'll end up playing for Poland or Hungary. I really don't know why Rüdiger or Ginter are in over him.

Oh I know....Löw has obvious favourites, and players he has a strong dislike for. :coffee:

Beautiful. Better than the home kit Imo (which I like the idea of, I just think it would be better with black, red, gold stripes).

I'm buying it.

I think Germany should stick with the Black kit, it just looks badass! And Germany have had quite a few huge wins when they have worn Black (4-0 Argentina and 7-1 Brazil come to mind)

On a side note, I’m afraid Khedira looks finished at the top level. Ever since that CL final he has been average at best. He was invisible today! At least Kroos was trying different stuff but Sami was a ghost. I believe Rudy should play more often in that DM role with Kroos. Gundogan had a nice game too and with Goretzka in the picture as well, I don’t see Khedira (who will be 31 by the time the WC starts) making it.

Guys, do you think Element deserves a one or two month ban? :lol:

Reserve RB is a spot of bother. Doesn’t help that Toljan is NOT played regularly at RB by Dortmund and I don’t know what’s up with Henrichs at Leverkusen.

Got an incredibly stupid red card today, minutes after he was subbed on. Hasn't been doing that great since Schmidt has been gone.

Who do you think can be Germany’s deputy to Kimmich for the RB spot? Toljan? I don’t watch much German soccer apart from Bayern games so I don’t know who can be a backup at RB.

Mustafi does look pretty good when he’s playing in the middle of a back three. He has been solid for Arsenal when he plays in that position. The Confederations Cup final comes to mind as well.
Today he was a rock at the heart of the back three in the NL Derby. Diffused many Tottenham attacks.

If he can put in consistent displays I think Löw could select him (maybe as a fifth CB) because Löw seems to like playing with a back three every now and then and Mustafi could do really well in a back three comprising of: (LCB)Hummels-Mustafi-Boateng/Rudiger(RCB)
