Insider Info FIFA World Cup - 2014: Germany vs Argentina


GermanyvsArgentina


Date:
Sun, 13-Jul-14

Germany Insider Info:
It has been confirmed since Germany's mauling of Brazil that Shkodran Mustafi is the only injured absentee for the final.
That is likely to mean an unchanged team for Jogi Löw's men.
The only real question mark is over Miroslav Klose, who has been in and out of the starting lineup all tournament, but the goalscoring threat he carries - and the rampant start Germany made against Brazil - is likely to mean he plays from the off here.
Philipp Lahm will remain at right-back while the impressive Sami Khedira will start in midfield again.

Hacken Insider Info:
Hacken’s striker Moestafa el Kabir has signed for Al Ahli in Saudi Arabia and leaves Hacken.Hacken lost with 1-0 away against Gefle but the goal didn’t come until in the last minute. Until then, Hacken was much closer to scoring than Gefle. It is not very often Hacken leaves a game without scoring, they are the offensively best team in the league. I belive they will soon be back on track.
