He is undoubtedly one of the top rated and current best stopper in the football world where with his absence there are number of best quality alternatives like Marc Andre ter Stegen. He is the main stopper of Spanish giant Barcelona. Let’s see the details players list of Germany which would participate in upcoming competition in 2018 below.

Team Germany is the second most successful team in FIFA World Cup by winning the title four times so far. Their playing style is far different than South American nation. They used to play attacking football and they are very speedy indeed. So, chasing them is quite difficult for even Argentina and Brazil.
In the upcoming season of the tournament, they have also balanced team where the defenders are Niklas Sule, Mats Hummels, Antonio Rudiger, Joshua Kimmich and some others. All are top rated and still connected with different renowned clubs. Besides, in the defense position, they used to ground few players but their main weapon is their attacking midfielders. In last tournament in 2014, attacking midfielder Mario Gotze made the match winning only goal and through that they did beat Argentina is final. He is still in the current squad and would probably play in the upcoming event.
They have some fearsome attacking midfielders in their squad like Toni Kroos, Mesut Ozil, Sami Khedira, Julian Draxler etc which can change a game anytime. Besides, they have Thomas Muller type forward who is not in current squad but will play in the upcoming big event. He is one of the top scorer in FIFA World Cup history. He used to score goals in big matches and led his team to victory. 27 years old Andre Schurrle is not in the main squad currently but hopefully, he will join with the team in the competition.
