France – Germany SOCCER PICKS
The ideal moment to strike K.O. to a German team that is going from bad to worse. France, in turn, could take the advantage in the face of the important clash against a renewed and surprising Holland.
Germany should not surprise us under any circumstances. It is more than what we saw in the 2018 World Cup in Russia, where only by condescension of destiny did it go out beaten by Mexico, by Korea or by Sweden, which had to show a better performance before the Teutonic square.
For this, we must make an analysis of how German football works at this time.
Low is often cited as a football visionary, who rescued the glorious generation of German football that was damaged after the retirement of the Kahn, Ballack and company. Yes, he was a bit lucky to still have some “capos” from previous litters, such as Lahm or Klose.
But now that they are gone, the seams are being seen in Germany.
Why? Because renewal is imminent, and Low is doing it wrong, or in positions where renovation should not be talked about.
For example, that Jonas Hector is the left-back, in a country where there are probably better left German wings, is a nonsense. That Uth is a forward center, in a country where even Mario Gomez can still score 2 goals against the Netherlands, is nonsense.
And that some positions continue in improvisation, such as the lack of confidence for Brandt or Sané, who always enter from the bank, and the loss of performance of Kroos that Low does not want to assimilate, I think one of the issues that have Germany today on the edge of an elimination and yes, of a decline in the UEFA Nations League.
On the other side is France. The friendly against the children of thunder (Iceland) should not be counted, because they were 2-2 in a deceptive game. But we must tell about the way France, losing 2-0 with 5 minutes left, came back with the player who will be the heir of what we have been enjoying for decades: Messi – Cristiano.
Mbappé is a player for Olympus, who being so young is not afraid of anything. And with this it would be enough to beat a Germany that does not have faith, and that does not show itself whole physically, as if to believe that by “push” they can win a match.
France yes. Yes to everything. He is playing well, they have leaders everywhere (Lloris, Kanté, Griezmann, Mbappé himself), and they have the freshness necessary to put the game on their side as soon as the initial whistle is given.
I do not see where Germany can rescue itself and eliminate the abysmal disadvantages with respect to its other group rivals. France, which knows well in what state Germany arrives, will play the match knowing that it is the party that decides whether it advances or not. If the Bavarians won, they would complicate the situation in the group, tying all with 4 points and throwing a coin in the air in an authentic qualifying lottery.
Les Bleus do not want that, but not even thinking about it pleases them.
