Germany coach Joachim Low has named a 30-man provisional squad for the 2014 World Cup. Germany, who are trading as 5/1 joint second favourites alongside Argentina has assembled the primary squad which has an average age of just 24.8 years. One of the big names to have been omitted from the squad is Mario Gomez, who has been struggling with injury during his time with Fiorentina this term.

So Miroslav Klose will be relied upon, the 35 year old pushing up the average age of the squad a bit. One of the big features of the German challenge is that they have such a tremendous array of midfielders, but are lacking a prolific out and out, genuine number nine. Gomez could have offered a solution, but Low said that Mario Gotze, Marco Reus and Thomas Muller could all come in and be utilised as a striker.

Ladbrokes make Klose and Muller 4-1 joint-favourites to be Germany’s top scorer in Brazil, while Low’s men are 11-2 to win the tournament.
