The 2014 FIFA World Champios begin their quest to European glory facing a decent Ukrainian team with dangerous wingers in Yarmolenko and Konoplyanka. Germany are one of the favourites to win this UEFA Euro because they will start players like Kroos, Khedira, Müller, Özil, Draxler and Götze upfront.

Their defensive line might not be good enough without Mats Hummels, but Germany play with a possession-oriented style that should allow them to enjoy some comfortable games.

Müller will reportedly start the match on the right wing with Götze playing as a false nine, but they could change positions throughout the match, even with Mesut Özil and Julian Draxler as well. These attackers can play almost every position in the offensive line and that gives coach Joachim Löw the opportunity to shake things up if they can't get anything going with the ball on their feet.

Considering that France did not perform up to expectations, it will be important for Germany to prove they're ready to fight for the title.
