Germany simply answers the question. They are the only country to win both Male and Female World Cup. This is a team that qualified for the World Cup with a perfect 10 wins out of 10 while scoring a joint European-record 43 goals. The Die Mannschaft is the most complete team heading to Russia, they are blessed with fantastic players and don’t rely on any individual to make the difference. They include Jérôme Boateng, Mats Hummels, Manuel Neuer, Toni Kroos, Mesut Özil, Thomas Müller, Mario Götze, Ilkay Gündogan, Marco Reus and Sami Khedira


The defending champions are expected to make it all the way to the finals and even the tournament again. But one of our experts at Jolloftips pointed a worrying pattern with the last 4 defending champions. They all have had poor showings during their title defence. Will this present German team break this bad luck? We will have to wait and see SWEDEN Their best performance was finishing as runners-up in the 1958 World Cup they hosted. They are basically the reason the Azzurri of Italy failed to make it to Russia after beating them by a lone goal in the Playoffs. Though the poster boy Zlatan Ibrahimovic retired two years ago, the coach refused to recall him for the Mundial. They still boast of players like Lindelof, Emil Forsberg, John Guidetti and Ola Toivonen. Despite winning against Italy in the playoffs, much is not expected from them to be honest. The group stage exit is what we are predicting. SOUTH KOREA The Taegeuk Tigers are a major force in the Asian continent, their best finish came in 2002 when they cohosted the World Cup with Japan where they finished 4th, the best ever by an Asian side. Though it was littered with controversial decisions by the referees like the round of 16 match against Italy where Totti was sent off and the quarter-final where Spain had three goals chalked off. They qualified second in a group that had Iran and Uzbekistan. Will rely on the experience of Swansea midfielder Ki Sung-Yeung and goals from Tottenham Hotspur Son Heung-Min. We don’t fancy their chances of making it past the group stage. MEXICO The Tri-Color has been consistent in qualifying for the Mundial since 1994 and has made it past the group stage in the 6 outings, they have hosted the World Cup twice in 1970 and 1986. The Mexican team should be underestimated at one’s peril. They are a compact team with a blend of experience and youth. The ever-agile Guillermo Ochoa of Standard Liege is a good goalkeeper on a good day. Miguel Layun of Seville is a prowling defender with an eye for goals, Hector Moreno of Real Sociedad is as rugged as needed. Jonathan dos Santos is a reliable defensive midfielder who keeps it tight, tidy and simple at the back. His brother, Giovanni who incidentally plays in the same team with him at LA galaxy was tipped for great things but is gradually rediscovering his form. He can create havoc with his menacing runs from the heart of the park. Andres Guardado of Real Betis and Rafael Marquez of Club Atlas are the veteran’s of the team and bring a certain balance when needed.


In attack, Javier “Chicharito� Hernandez of West Ham is a fox in the box and can guarantee goals when it matters. Raul Jimenez of Benfica is prolific in the air and Irving Lozano of PSV Eindhoven is a predatory striker who can bang in the goals when called upon. This team have gelled over time, they have bonded and they understand themselves as evident in the Confederations Cup. We hope to see them in the round of 16.
