Germany banking on safe hands of Adler for World Cup fixtures

Germany’s first choice goalkeeper, Bayer Leverkusen’s Rene Adler, has made something of a remarkable recovery after breaking a rib, as he was back in training just 10 days after the injury. This will encourage betting on Germany at the World Cup no end, as he is one of the top performers across Europe. There was little worry that he would miss the tournament altogether, but he was expected to sit out some time while he recovered, to ensure that he would be fit enough to take his place in the starting line up at South Africa 2010. His team, Bayer are pushing for a third place finish in the German Bundesliga and he has been an important figure in their defence all season. Germany boss Joachim Low will have had him pencilled in as the starting goalie for the tournament for a long time now, and will be cheered to see Adler back in training.

There appeared to be little sign of any problems with his injury as he trained, and Adler was fully optimistic that he would be back in action before long. If Adler could not make the World Cup, then the two goalies fighting for a start would be Manuel Neuer and Tim Wiese. With the sight of Adler back in training though, German supporters should be cheered, as they can go confidently to the World Cup where they are in Group D along with Australia, Serbia and Ghana. World Cup Betting at Bwin has the Germans as favourites to win the group, and progress, but the group could be a lot closer than one may suspect. England fans will also have an interest in what happens in this group, as the winners and runners-up between the two groups will meet each other in the first knockout phase of the competition.

The World Cup Fixtures has Germany opening their FIFA 2010 World Cup against Australia on the 13th of June. That should afford the Germans a strong start in their trophy challenge, while the two suspected second place hopefuls in Group D, Serbia and Ghana battle it out in their opener. Before those World Cup dates, Low’s men will play a series of friendly warm up matches against Malta, Hungary and Bosnia-Herzegovina as preparation for the tournament.
