Germany World Cup News

Germany will be travelling to Brazil for the World Cup without their star winger, Marco Reus, after he went down injured with an ankle ligament injury in their final warm-up friendly against Armenia.

While Germany were dominant in their last match prior to the World Cup, with a 6-1 win over Armenia, being without one of their best players for the tournament is a heavy blow.

The Borussia Dortmund player was voted as the fans Player of the Year for the Bundesliga and added 16 goals along with, a league high, 13 assists. He was going to be a key player for Germany.

Still, according to Bovada Bookmaker, Germany are third favorites to win the World Cup at 11/2. Even without Reus, they have a world class squad and should go far. Shkrodan Mustafi, of Sampdoria, will take his place on the 23 man World Cup squad.
