With the World Cup in Brazil all but three months away, each and every side taking part will be meticulously going through their rosters, checking to see just which players fit and which don't. This week we saw a number of nations take part in international friendlies to continue their search for the perfect system, style and tactic to maximise their chances of success this summer.
Joachim Loew and his German side didn't have the best of times this week against a revitalised Chilean team that gave the European side very little time or space for comfort. It was another opportunity for Loew to cement a side in place ahead of the all-important competition, yet it just didn't happen.
With three friendlies left—against Poland, Cameroon and Armenia—this coach is running out of time and opportunities to find a squad of players to make history this year.
Fortunately, we've gone through the bother of picking a side for him. Here's how Germany should look this summer.
