Every team has weaknesses. Have Germany fixed their striker problem and do they have plenty of depth now? I very much doubt it as Gomez is still being called up. After Werner had to leave the pitch in the game against Besiktas (because of dizziness due to noise) ... Hasenhüttl said Werner suffers from circulatory diseases and has respiratory problems ... this doesn't sound good at all ... on top of that he's just a kiddo ... young strikers tend to be inconsistent or aren't as clinical as experienced strikers ... also, compared to club football you won't get as many chances in a WC game. What about Germany's FB woes ... they're not exactly world class, neither LB nor RB options (granted Kimmich shows promise yet lacks experience) ... still that's better than using Boateng at RB (who got exposed in Brazil before Lahm was moved back from the QFs onwards; luckily Algeria were wasteful in the Ro16) ... apropos, what's wrong with Boateng and Hummels this season? ... Howedes, who's filled in at LB before, will probably see a lot of the bench at his new club and Hector is nowhere near world class either ... also, without Lahm and Schweini a lot of experience is lost ... by the looks of it Germany don't really do holding midfielders as well. Maybe you can show Germany donot have any weaknesses in their starting line-up or on the bench ... be my guest ... but it's more likely Germany do have weaknesses just like every other NT ... also, depth is less important compared to club football ... an entire season lasts a fair bit longer than the WC and clubs have to battle on multiple fronts domestically and also in Europe ... besides NTs can only bring 23 players and it's smarter to bring extra attacking talent (as NT managers have fiddled a lot less with their defences at past WCs; most of the unused subs are goalies and defenders). PS any idea of Germany's WC2018 squad and Low's starting line-up?
