Team Analysis

Germany

Germany has a lot of great players who can do the game changes yet the struggle in creating a good line-up continues. Their performance is way different than before, most of their campaigns had a poor finished. Joachim Low struggles in combining the right players to play in the field.

With the return of Mats Hummels the German coach expect that they will be able to create an impressive stunt this time. The problem now is whether he will allow Jerome Boateng to be a part of the starting XI or not.

A lot of people expect that he will use the same formation against Northern Ireland, but will it be effective enough?

Germany (4-2-3-1): Neuer – Hector, Hummels, Boateng, Howedes – Khedira, Kroos – Goetze, Ozil, Muller – Gomez

Slovakia

Slovakia ended their rally with a goal less match over the three lion squad. There’s a question that circulate around, fans see them as strong while other see them as weak for not holding into the same intensity that they have at the start of their campaign until the end of it. Yet that is not a problem anymore as they get to seal a deal in the round of 16.

The major challenge is set to happen as some of the game changers suffered from fitness issue. Defenders Tomas Hubocan and Dusan Svento are in great doubt of playing in the said match. Meanwhile, attacking Midfielder Robert Mak hopes that he will be able to recover just in time before this rally start.

Slovakia (4-2-3-1): Kozacik – Hubocan, Durica, Skrtel, Pekarik – Pecovsky, Kucka – Weiss, Hamsik, Mak – Nemec
