Even before the EM 2016, Joachim Löw stated that his goal was not the European Championship but the title defense in Russia 2018.
After a good qualifying in Group C, the trip to Russia has almost been booked and at least the first step in the title defense has been done, but there is still a lot of work to be done before they can lift the golden trophy again.

How do the Germany World Cup 2018 jerseys look like?
In the World Cup 2016, Adidas was not quite satisfied. The Away jersey with its new, unique design (reversal, the inside looks like a camisole) was generally good. It had quite thin cross-strips in two different dark green shades.
The home jersey, on the other hand, kept in white, turned out to be a shopkeeper. The design element, which should represent the tournaments of the DFB-Elf by means of bars woven into the fabric, went down due to lack of visibility quite.
With the new Confed Cup 2017 jersey, Adidas went another. As well as the shirt of host Russia, it is modeled on the classic, strongly patterned jerseys of the 90s. Since the pattern, which consists of many triangular shapes, is printed in light gray on white, But it does not look particularly striking.
Since the new collar ring in Germany colors should not help much. Unfortunately, many fans have passed the New Jersey, although it has been worn for some games.
How is Germany’s World Cup?
The DFB Elf belongs to an illustrious club when it comes to world championships. With 20 tournaments, there were only eight different winners; two or more World Cup titles have even four teams in the account.
Behind record winner Brazil with five titles, Germany and Italy share second place with four titles ahead of Argentina and Uruguay, each with two. In addition to the titles, the balance of the team can be seen in general.
There is no other team, which is as consistent with the elite of world football as the German national team. In 18 World Cup competitions, they never left the group, reached the semi-finals 13 times and played eight times in the final that is a record!
Also in Russia, they will again try to hold the average semi-finals and is certainly back as one of the favorites on the title.
What is the trend of Germany?
After six games in the World Cup qualifying group C, they are confidently ranked first with 15 points. Even in the friendly game against England, one could win despite a lot of changes and missing teammates just barely 1: 0.
The signs for the team are therefore consistently good. In the summer, the Confed Cup is an additional test tournament and they will probably arrive with a very young prospective team. This may already gain some experience there and maybe one or the other with good performances can submit his application for the World Cup in the following year.
The team has successfully rejuvenated after the departures of Per Mertesacker, Philip Lahm, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Miro Klose and Lukas Podolski, Only now and then the chemistry between the crew members is not quite so. Talented offspring is fortunately still available and so Jogi Löw probably also 2018 again the agony of the choice with the cad ranking.
Who will plays for Germany?
In the goalkeeper question, it is still a real luxury problem for Germany. Beside the multiple world goalkeepers Manuel Neuer, a multitude of first-class keeper, who all have the potential to play for the A-national team.
Marc-André ter Stegen of FC Barcelona, Bernd Leno of Bayer Leverkusen and Kevin Trapp of Paris-Saint-Germain have probably the best chances to be taken, but there are still many more goalkeepers to the eye. Timo Horn, FC Cologne is one of them and Ralf Fährmann. The World Cup check thus clearly stands by with bravur.
In the defense, the pair of inside defenders from Mats Hummels and Jérôme Boateng has proved themselves and can be judged clearly as a world class. The only problem that both have for some time is their relative vulnerability.
Behind them, players like Benni Höwedes and Holger Badstuber will probably be just as aware of their experience as the new talent Niklas Süle from TSG Hoffenheim (FC Bayern from summer 2017). Philip Lahm has left a difficult gap to fill in his defensive positions.
Jonas Hector has partly filled them and is considered as set, on the other defense side Joshua Kimmich could be the solution.
What are the strengths and weaknesses of Germany?
As always, Jogi Löw is spoiled for choice. One of its major problems is likely to be the foreigner. Apart from Jonas Hector, who plays with his 26 years as if he had already 100 national games and can be considered as set is still one position open.
Joshua Kimmich can play this, but as already Emre Can and Sebastian Rudy, who already held this position, were no longer able to get a trained outside defender and in midfield. Even in the midfield, you have the agony of choice but you also usually have many injuries.
Sami Khedira, Marco Reus and Ilkay Gündogan are very clear candidates for the first eleven, but unfortunately, they are very, very often injured. Due to the vulnerability of some players, Jogi Löw will have little planning security until the World Cup, and this could be the decisive negative factor for the team.
Constantly rotating and no solid trunk, due to many injuries, the people around captain Neuer could thus cost the title defense.
