Germany will be looking to defend their title as champions of the world when they will commence their activities on Sunday. They will play their most difficult match in the group stage, when they will clash against Mexico. Mexico will be looking to finish 2nd in this group, but things have not been very calm for them lately.
Germany are once again one of the big favorites to win a World Cup, and they will be really serious to get it done. Only Brazil have captured back-to-back World Cups almost half a century ago, so Germany will be looking to become the second team to have done that. They have a really disciplined team, and they are deadly serious when it comes to big tournaments like this. They might be lacking a fearsome name in the offense, but Timo Werner will try to cover the gap.
Mexico are in the World Cup for the 16th time, and they are aiming to qualify from a passable group. Their main competitor for the 2nd spot are Sweden, and that will be the pivotal match in the group. However, Mexico have been involved in a sex scandal not too long ago, and that might have affected the players. In any case, they have a really feisty team, and they easily finished at the top of their qualifying group. They know that this will be their hardest match, so even a draw point would be more than welcome here.
