The group stage matches are now onto the second lot. As FIFA World Cup 2014, first round of group stage matches are already completed. Quite expected and surprise events have taken place within just these few games.
For a group G match, now we are looking at the Germany vs Ghana match. Tonight Germany will face Ghana in their second group stage match. They will have to put in one hell of a performance like their last match against Portugal.
Plan for Germany in Germany vs Ghana match:
After the last glorious match, Joachim Low here faces the unenviable task of another glamorous win.
Die Mannschaft cause a destruction for the team Portugal with Thomas Mueller’s hat-trick. Mario Goetze was another greater weapon for the team. Mesut Ozil also found some space for himself, which turned the line to the victory with comfortable difficulties.
May be Germany will be planning for another 4-3-3 formation this night. This formation sends the featured four centre-backs. With players like Philipp Lahm in midfield and no Bastian Schweinsteiger, we still can hope for a few changes. And there is another question, who is the selection today as replacement.
Truly it is difficult to predict the great Low. But he must be finding some fine plans of winning this particular match as to make sure the second round.
Plan for Ghana in Germany vs Ghana match:
Last match, Ghana went for a 4-2-3-1 formation and that was turgid. Many can say it as uninspiring and full of flaws for the team.
They started their opener against the USA’s 4-4-2. Still failed to use their spare man in midfield to good use. Another reson for their failure can be considered as the poor decision making.
Kwesi Appiah tried after the U.S. left flank. But this allowed the game to bypass their best player Kwadwo Asamoah as left back.
Asamoah Gyan is probably not anymore sharp like the 2010. He is not that ready like the runner off the ball like the previous World Cup event.
Battle between two brothers: Jerome Boateng and Kevin-Prince Boateng
Yes off course, this is not a tactical clash. Probably this can be taken as a battle between two brothers at a World Cup. But definitely it’s nothing to be excited about.
Prince seriously injured Michael Ballack in the FA Cup final four years ago. He also ruled the midfield general out of the World Cup 2010. And that’s the main cause he becomes the no. 1 common enemy for the German team.
As a matter of fact, this man will now represent Ghana and come up against his own brother Jerome for the first time tonight.
Germany vs Ghana: Pressure vs Counter
In the world cup 2010 qualifiers, Ghana excelled on the counterattacks. While Jurgen Klinsmann took that prospect away from the Black Stars. Now this will be ever-present against Germany too.
Jordan Ayew, Gyan and Christian Atsu can all devastate at pace. Die Mannschaft is here guaranteed to take at least 65 percent possession of the ball. Now there Appiah can prepare his side for a more direct outline.
No, we don’t think Ghana will ever be able to break down Low’s side that much easily. Actually they don’t need to do so. But obviously Germany will try to dominate the black stars as to become the 4 times World Cup Winners.
