With the World Cup less than 50 days away, the footballing world will descend on Brazil, let's examine each individual nation, focusing on the nation, likely squad to go, key player, player to watch and the manager. This is focusing on Germany.

The Predicted Squad of 23

Goalkeepers - Manuel Neuer (Likely No.1) Rene Adler and Roman Weidenfeller

Defenders - Jerome Boateng, Marcel Schemzler, Per Mertersacker, Mats Hummels, Philip Lahm, Erik Durm, Benedikt Howedes

Midfielders - Toni Kroos, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Mesut Ozil, Thomas Muller, Mario Gotze, Marco Reus, Julian Draxler, Lukas Podolski, Andre Schurrle, Lars Bender

Forwards - Mario Gomez, Stefan Kiebling, Miroslav Klose

There are countless players who could still make the squad including Sidney Sam, Andre Hahn, Sven Bender, Kevin Großkreutz, Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Max Kruse,

The Key Player will be Schweinsteiger, his ability to control the midfield will be detrimental to how Germany do in this World Cup, if he is on form and producing the goods, he could be lifting the World Cup potentially.

The Player to watch is Julian Draxler, his talent is there to witness, if given enough game time, he will merit a big move, Arsenal missed out on him last summer, for only being 20 years of age, he has a tactical mind that even seasoned veterans would be jealous of. He has the complete package and could be the potential star of the World Cup.

The Manager Joachim Low has been in charge since July 2006, and has been involved with the National team since after Euro 2004, due to being assistant to Jurgen Kilnsmann, he has masterminded two third places in his two World cups while involved and a Semi-Final loss to Italy in Euro 2012 and a Final defeat to Spain at Euro 2008.

His record has been astonishing in 102 games has won 70, drawn 17 and lost 15. Could he finally win that major trophy as Germany Coach which would cement his legacy.
