Predicting the Germany Squad 40 Days from the 2014 World Cup

Just over a month remains before the 2014 World Cup begins in Brazil, and time is running out for Germany coach Joachim Low to choose his preliminary squad.

The Bundestrainer has until May 13 to select his 30-man team, which will be cut to 23 before the tournament kicks off.

Low has long approached his job as though it were a club position, maintaining relative consistency in his selection. But a blight of injuries this season will force him to make changes to the squad he took to Euro 2012, despite no active Germany international having retired in the meantime.

Mario Gomez, Sami Khedira, Benedikt Howedes, Dennis Aogo, Sven Bender, Mesut Ozil and Marcel Schmelzer are just some of the many Germany internationals who have been injured as of late. Other burgeoning talents, meanwhile, have emerged as contenders for a spot in the team in Brazil next month.

With 40 days remaining until the tournament kicks off and just 10 until Low names his preliminary squad, click Begin Slideshow for a preview of the Germany squad that may make it to Brazil.
