With Die Mannschaft’s World Cup woes one of the hottest topics in world soccer, here’s a way too early look at how Germany might shape up at Euro 2020.

The 2018 World Cup will be remembered for many things. There have already been several outstanding moments through the group stage and round of 16 of the competition. One of the most shocking moments, though, was the disappointing display from reigning world champions Germany.

Die Mannschaft were hardly a shadow of their former selves. The many questions surrounding Joachim Low’s selection proved legitimate, as the Germans failed to convince in any of their three matches.

The future of Die Mannschaft is speculative at best. However, one thing is for certain: change is necessary. The modern game is evolving and Germany are on the verge of being left behind. Joachim Low opted to stick with his tried and true 4-2-3-1 in Russia and paid the price for his traditionalist, safe approach.

In the end, his possession-based directionless approach was exposed by teams who had no business beating Germany. While his players may not have performed to their absolute best, the majority of the blame for the Germans’ embarrassment has to fall on Low’s shoulders.

There’s plenty of room for change, but it must start with Joachim Low’s squad selection. Germany will no doubt look much different at Euro 2020 than they did this summer. So, here’s a far too early look at who might represent the Nationalelf two years from now.
