That's going from 80 to 8, no? We had a bad WC. Everyone but Germany had one in the last 10 years. Unless you expect a huge decline in the next years, we still have some of the best clubs outside the big leagues and decent academies. Regardless, if there exist problems with our youth system, then we can only think about solving them. I was neither too confident before the WC nor am I that defeatist now. Germany is the perfect example of how to go from decadence in 2000 to being the best in 2014.
