Germany hopes to bounce back after Russia 2018 failure

Germany won their fourth World Cup title, however they were not able to defend their title back in Russia 2018. They were at the bottom of their group during Russia 2018, and a 2-0 loss from South Korea ended their hopes. This is actually their worst performance in a World Cup since 1938. During that time, they listed two losses in the group stage with a negative 2-goal differential. As a defending champs, saying that they are embarrassed is an understatement.

Now that they have a new chance to redeem themselves in the World Cup, they will do whatever it takes just to be able to bounce back. In fact, after their devastating finish in Russia 2018, their unfortune continues. Their disappointment hunts them into the 2018-19 Nations League and Euro 2020. With that, their manager Joachim Low stepped down and his assistant, Hans-Dieter Flick took over. Ever since Flick took over Germany, they has yet to lose. With that kind of confidence, the Germans are sure they can bounce back from their devastating finish.

Before going to the World Cup, they had the Nations League, however, luck is still not with them in that tournament. They failed to clinch the finals in the League A when Hungary defeated them. At least, they did not end their campaign with a loss as they draw their last match against England. As they were able to draw their last match, it is already a huge help for them to build their momentum.

Winning four titles in the World Cup and three European titles already speaks for the Germans. Others may doubt their capabilities after a disappointing finish last World Cup but records do not lie. Regardless of what happened to them last World Cup, it is clear that they are still a title contender. This is an experienced and talented team, and that is their number one key to succeed in this edition.
