GERMANY v GHANA BETTING PREVIEWGermany started off with a bang as they beat Portugal 4-0. Thomas Muller scored a hat-trick as he looks to retain his Golden Boot from the last World Cup. Die Mannschaft controlled the match from the very beginning, particularly thanks to an early goal (from the penalty spot) and because of the red shown to Pepe
Joachim Löw is not yet certain if Borussia Dortmund’s centre back Mats Hummels - who was replaced on 73rd minute against Portugal due to injury - will be fit for the clash. Shkodran Mustafi ready to replace him if needed while Bastian Schweinsteiger should come back into the starting XI at the expense of Sami Khedira
Ghana surrended 2-1 to the United States, a result which in effect might end their chances of making the second round. Despite going down, Ghana was arguably the better team throughout 90 minutes. They have an absolutely terrible recent form record, as they have won just once and lost four in their last five matches.
Key midfielder Michael Essien has been toiling with a toe injury for Akwasi Appiah’s side but is fit to start. We might see Kevin Prince Boateng start here after he came off the bench in the opening match. Majeed Waris should be available for selection but he is unlikely to be in the starting XI as ex Sunderland star Asamoah Gyan should lead the line in attack.
Ghana met the Germans in the group stage 4 years ago, with Mesut Ozil’s goal on the hour mark sufficient to consign them to a 1-0 loss.
