United States: Jurgen Klinsmann’s men qualified for the tournament as CONCACAF toppers but it would still need a miracle of sorts for them to qualify from their group. They have to beat the Ghanians if they are to have any chance of qualifying. They have a very good coach in Jurgen Klinsman and their squad has a mixture of youth and experience. For the Yanks this tournament is all about redefining the US soccer dream.
Germany: So near yet so far has been the case for Germans in the past few tournaments. Joachim Loew’s side excel in all departments but will have to make it count when it matters the most. They are placed in a formidable group and with stalwarts like Muller, Ozil, Lahm, Kroos, Gotze and a host of other stars they will be looking to get down to business. One problem area for the Germans can be the striking role with veteran Miroslav Klose the only well known face.
