NAC draws Polish College in victory

Germany the Sleeper of South Africa

It seems clear that the favorites to win the World Cup this summer are Spain, Brazil, England or Argentina. But don’t count out Germany, which does not get a lot of coverage in the English-speaking papers. Germany went to the final in the 2008 Euro Cup, losing to Spain 0-1. They also finished near the top of the European qualification tables for Johannesburg.

The mannschaft has a reputation for being well-coached and playing at the top of their talent range, and a game pitting Germany against possible contenders England, Spain or Brazil is evenly matched. Expect Germany to sail through the quarters and make it to the semi-finals at least.
