The official 23-man squad who will lead Germany into the World Cup in South Africa has been announced.


Low Selects His Squad - How Will They Do?

Manuel Neuer
Tim Wiese
Hans-Joerg Butt


Philipp Lahm
Dennis Aogo
Holger Badstuber
Jerome Boateng
Per Mertesacker
Serdar Tasci
Arne Friedrich


Bastian Schweinsteiger
Sami Khedira
Piotr Trochwoski
Marko Marin
Mesut Ozil
Toni Kroos
Marcell Jansen


Mario Gomez
Thomas Mueller
Lukas Podolski
Miroslav Klose
Stefan Kiessling

Joachim Low has recently criticized Miroslav Klose in the press, expressing his worries over the Bayern Munich veteran’s form. Kevin Kuranyi, who led the goalscoring charts in the Bundesliga, was not selected despite his form. Would you have chosen a 23 different to Low’s? I believe Klose will go on to justify his selection in the squad, and I think Low’s squad is as good as it gets for Germany, considering their unbelievable injury problems.

My ideal German XI would be:

Neuer – Lahm, Mertesacker, Tasci, Badstuber – Khedira, Schweinsteiger – Marin, Ozil, Trochowski – Cacau
