World Cup participations: 15
Greatest World Cup achievement: 3-time World Cup winners (1954, 1974, 1990)
After winning the title in 1990 Germany was the most successful world cup nation,
but in the meanwhile Brazil has run away with 2 more world cups.
Can Germany catch up?
Actually the performances in the recent years have not been very exciting,
but with the home crowd, something could be possible.
And when they got into the final with a rather poor team in Japan/Korea in 2002
at home even more could be expected.
Head of the team is Michael Ballack, in the attack Miroslav Klose and youngster Lukas
Podolski are hungry for goals - Germany has a lot of talents that could still form
a powerful force.
Who will stand between the posts? Titan Kahn? In recent years he has a lost some of
his outstanding form, but also Lehmann is not that secure.
The odds on Germany as world cup winner were not too high
- 8.50 at Betandwin.
For a bet on group winner Germany you get 1.28.
of World Cup 2002, Germany are hosting the World Cup 2006. The
host team comes in as a solid force to reckon with.
to watch out for: Michael Ballack in midfield and
attackers Miroslav Klose and Lukas Podolski and Oliver Kahn in the
Champions in 1972, 1980 (as West Germany) and 1996; losing
finalists in 1976 and 1992. Qualified in 1972, 1976, 1980,
1984, 1988, 1992, 1996, 2000
