Since 1982 Germany have at least reached the semi-finals in every tournament apart from the 1994 European Championships and 1998 World Cup in France, where on both occasions they reached the quarter finals. Germany have been in the top 6 of FIFA's rankings since 1998, exemplifying their dominance on the international stage. it's no wonder Germany are 2nd favorites for Euro 2016. Germany won World Cup 2014 and can always rely on an exciting crop of young players to challenge the established stars for their place in the team.
Youngsters such as Timo Werner, Julian Brandt and Max Meyer are pushing hard to break into the first team, a squad already boasting superstars like goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, Mats Hummels, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Mesut Ozil and Thomas Muller.
For the last 30 years they have consistently proven their mettle at the highest level against top sides in the world. England have thrown everything at Germany in the past but found them difficult to break down. Germany have strength throughout the team and perform best when the pressure is on.

How To Win At Germany Football Team Bets
Let's look at how we can turn our knowledge of the German team into winning bets. The clean-sheet betting market is a logical market for us to start with as the German defence, led by world-class goalkeeper Manuel Neuer and supported by world class defenders Mats Hummels and Jerome Boateng, forms a solid base. The players have played many internationals and are proven performers at the highest level so bets that reflect Germany's strong defence have value.
With nearly 400 caps between them Lukas Podolski, Thomas Muller, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Mesut Ozil, offer a midfield packed with talent and pedigree. Mario Gomez alongside Mario Gotze up front gives the team a solid tandem up front. Their forwards are, however, the weakest of the bunch.
Germany, if their top team is on the pitch, has the propensity to streamroll their opponents. Have a look to the overs market when Germany is up against inferior opponents, especially at home.
We like Thomas Muller for a potential first goal-scorer bet as he tallied 4 goals in World Cup 2014 while his partner Mario Gotze scored 3 goals, including the World Cup winner. Both are talented enough to score against even the world's best defenders.
Germany does not rely on the individual skills of one player despite having a lot of very talented players in their squad. They'll grind their opposition down by keeping possession, playing physically and utilising efficient, patient and incisive passing.
