Germans out to rewrite previous stories

    “You must be 11 friends.”

    Prior to their match against Hungary in the 1954 FIFA World CupTM final in Switzerland, Sepp Herberger gave this advice to the German national team. It has become a catchphrase in Germany and is perhaps the best way to sum up the team's accomplishments. It also captures the essence of German football: generations of players who have excelled in big events have been characterized by their teamwork, tenacity, and camaraderie.

    On the other hand, things might get challenging if there isn't a good sense of unity and atmosphere inside the team. An example of this was the 2018 World Cup in Russia, where Germany struggled under national pressure and their own high standards, resulting in their worst-ever World Cup performance and group-stage elimination.

    The team's talent was on display during Qatar 2022 qualifying and the UEFA Nations League, as well as their struggles to finish and retain their composure for the whole 90 minutes. That makes it even more intriguing to see whether Germany will, as is customary, develop into a tournament team or whether they will fall short of their own goals.

    Hansi Flick’s approach and tactics

    After serving in that position for 15 years, Joachim Low handed over the reins to Hansi Flick in August 2021. As the team's 1st overall coach, Flick has maintained faithful to German football's features, including possession-based play and an attractive style while also adding his own distinctive touch that fans loved while he was in charge of Bayern Munich.

    In order to put the opposition under pressure as soon as possible, Flick places a special emphasis on flexibility in all positions. Germany's game is still all about possession and control. As a result, it will be essential for players to pitch in everywhere they can in order to prevent any opponent counterattacks. If Flick and his squad want to at least reach the semifinals, they will also need to focus on sharpening the accuracy of their last ball and their finishing.

    Key player: Manuel Neuer

    When Manuel Neuer is discussed, it is typically in terms of how his playing style has revolutionized the game by allowing him to place himself closely behind the center backs and aid in constructing play from the back rather than simply sweeping up behind the defense. He is still regarded as one of the top goalkeepers in the world, and at age 36, he has won every football title there is.

    As a result, less should be written about his duties as a sweeper-keeper and more should be stated about his leadership characteristics. His honesty, dependability, and ability to communicate both on and off the field genuinely set him apart. Since 2016, Neuer has served as the team's captain, and he will be crucial in preserving unity within the group at the World Cup.

    One to watch: Jamal Musiala

    The highlight of German football is Jamal Musiala. The 19-year-old was born in Germany but spent the majority of his childhood in England, so he played for both nations at the juvenile level before having to make a crucial choice about who to represent at the senior level. Both countries courted the then-17-year-old, who ultimately decided to stay in his native Germany, much to England's dismay and Germany's delight. He is well-liked by supporters and the German Football Association for other reasons as well, including his humble demeanor, tenacity, and footballing prowess.

    Musiala can play virtually anywhere on the pitch, even if he is most comfortable in attacking midfield, and despite his youth he is already a vital member of Flick’s team. “The way he plays football with such light feet and in such a relaxed manner is great and I hope that will continue for a long time,” the coach told FIFA. “He finds good solutions when he’s under pressure and is very positive for the team. He can get past opponents and make life difficult for them, while at the same time creating space for us with his solid defending. I'm happy that he’s developed in this way and I hope he will continue on this path and not rest on his laurels but keep improving.”

    Germany’s World Cup record

    Germany's World Cup experience has had its share of highs and lows, evoking strong feelings in everyone involved. Germany, which has won the competition's championship four times (1954, 1974, 1990, and 2014), placed second four times (1966, 1982, 1986, and 2002), and third three times, is the nation that has had the most success overall. As a result, it is not unexpected that some of the most productive strikers in World Cup history are German. Gerd Muller (13 goals) and Miroslav Klose (13) both cemented their places in history with their World Cup heroics.
