Future Stars: Thomas Mueller, Mesut Ozil, Manuel Neuer, Lukas Podolski, Bastian Schwensteiger.
European Championships: Three (1972, 1980, 1996)
Germany left South Africa with a bitter taste in their mouth....
They failed to win the World Cup after making it to the final four for the the third straight World Cup appearance.
However, they proved many wrong and went further then what most believed and have a squad that looks to be absolutely threatening.
Thomas Mueller is only 20 years old and he won the golden boot award and the FIFA Best Young Player award in only his first World Cup ever!
Mesut Ozil has risen as one of the best play-makers of the World Cup and is a rising star for years to come. The likes of Marko Marin, Toni Kroos, Lukas Podolski, Bastian Schwensteiger are all in their mid 20's, or early 20's.
In my opinion Germany is the team that will win Euro Cup 2012 but, I can't just yet put them over the defending World Champs now can I?
