With Chile already waiting for the victors in the Final of the Confederations Cup, big hitters Germany take on Mexico in Russia, with the Mexicans the surprise package if they do reach the Final.
Germany will hope to follow in the footsteps of their Under-21s side in reaching a Final and if they don’t there will surely be some disappointment in the camp, after all, we know what a German’s will to win is like, particularly in the summer, after all, we all know what they’re like with putting their towels on the sunbeds round the pools at this time of year.
Despite us playing down Mexico’s chances, they do have players who can cause damage for the young and experimental side put together for this tournament by Joachim Low. We all know that Javier Hernandez is a great poacher and is capable of causing havoc for the German backline. Another former Premier League man in Carlos Vela has a pretty decent goalscorer, too and will be another one to watch.
This one definitely won’t be an easy one to call, and with potential glory on the horizon, Mexico won’t go down without a fight. And aside from that, Germany haven’t looked as fluid as they have been in the past.
They just about did enough to get past Cameroon with a late show, but the African side did have chances themselves to cause a scare. They also mustered a 1-1 draw with Chile earlier in the group stages.
The Two Potential Teams…
GERMANY: ter Stegan, Henrichs, Mustafi, Rudiger, Hector, Kimmich, Draxler, Can, Demirbay, Werner, Stindl
MEXICO: Ochoa, Salcedo, Reyes, Moreno, Layun, J. dos Santos, Herrera, Guardado, Aquino, Vela, Hernandez
What We Sayin’?
We’ve a feeling this one will go the distance – possibly penalties (and we all know what will happen then). We’re hedging our bets with a 1-1 draw in 90 minutes at a tasty looking 21/4.
