No dead days in Brazil 2014.

 

 

Germany vs Portugal

 

Germans have had the edge on The Portugese in recent times. Portugal last win against Germany was 3-0 thanks to a Sergio Conceicao hat-trick.

 

My problem with this current German generation is Low, The guy is toothless(tactically and mentally) because I am yet to see Germany recover from going behind under this guy

 

Euro 2008

 

Croatia

Spain

 

SA 2010

 

Serbia

Spain

 

Euro 2012

 

Italy

 

 

 

Also  the introduction of Lahm in the midfield happens / could happen at the expense of Özil, as the team switches to a 4-3-3 (like) system, making the CAM / "playmaker" position in the 4-2-3-1 they used so far obsolete. Özil could stil play, of course, but they have better "specialists" for the attacking positions in a 4-3-3.

 

 

Another thing I hope Durm starts instead of that new trend of centre backs filling in at fullback.

 

Boateng should play CB alongside either Mertesacker or Hummels because they look vunerable to counters because they both cannot turn to save their lives especially against a counter attacking which includes Cristiano,Nani,Varela,Vieirinha in their ranks.

 

Going back to Low he cannot decide to start Klose or use a false number 9 plus I feel he still hasn't got the best out of their most talented player Gotze.

 

Portugal are my dark horses due to the fact they are a top tournament team.

 

Euro 04-Final

WC 06-4th

Euro 08-QF

WC 10-2nd

Euro 12-SF

 

They have ran Spain close twice in the last two major tournaments. Even tho I don't feel their CM at all but Defensively they are so strong and can adapt to any situation

despite having a bad goalkeeper.

 

Their strength is the wingers in their squad but CF still remains a huge weakness has been like this since Eusebio if only Cristiano Ronaldo was good with his back to goal.

 

 

Nigeria vs Iran

 

 

Watched a lot of Nigeria so shaky at the back but they have the best african keeper in Skepta who has improved big time just like DST said.

 

Mikel needs to get on the ball as much as he can but he cannot hog it because Emenike will get frustrated who is their biggest goal threat.

 

Keshi is horrible at making subs and another thing they have two wingers who are dangerous but between Musa and Moses neither have a football brain.

 

Iran need to play the winger from NEC he is their only threat and I am afraid if he doesn't start they will be so negative especially under a coach like Queiroz.

 

 

 

 

USA vs Ghana

 

USA defence is awful as well(I know I keep saying this about every defence in this World Cup but it's true) but they have Howard who is a decent goalkeeper as we all know.

 

Bradley isn't box to box under Klinsmann he is more the creative force because Klinsmann has adopted a diamond which sits Bradley on top of it with Jones as the holding player this guy is a red card waiting to happen.

 

They have this player called Davis who has a wand of a left foot when it comes to set pieces.  Dempsey plays CF alongside Altidore in this system.

 

 

Ghana IMO are Africa's best team without a shadow of doubt. 

 

No keeper and no defence but they have players going forward who are so dangerous.

 

I don't want to see Essien,Jordan Ayew and Atsu start whatsoever and I hope Boateng is used as a CM instead of AM because when he cannot create and plays for himself ie starts shooting from silly angles and ranges instead of creating.
