Germany have won the World Cup four times, the European Championships three times and are the reigning world champions. They come into Euro 2016 as joint-favorites to win the tournament with hosts France, and have a squad that is the envy of many international football managers. Germany are the most successful European country in international football, and second only to Brazil in terms of World Cup success. For many years their brand of stylish play combined with a ruthless cold-blooded has propelled them to world’s best.  [+]

But is there more to Germany’s triumphs than their enviable qualities? They are, perhaps, stronger even than the sum of their parts and though we thought it wasn’t possible, the team has improved under the tutelage of Joachim Low.

One of their most memorable victories was undoubtedlty the 1990 World Cup win, where they triumphed in the semifinal against a great England team built around the prodigious talents of Paul Gascoigne and the goal-scoring expertise of the golden boot winner in 1986, Gary Lineker. 

Not only did Germany beat England, but also Argentina in a hot-tempered final.

Following their success in 1996, Germany entered a fallow period in general, where they were not the force they previously were. Even their own World Cup in 2006 was not the tournament we had expected from Germany. Gone was the assumption of superiority that their teams of the 1970’s and 1990’s characterized so well, in its place was more of a youthful look.

The perfect balance of midfield domination, defensive control and attacking prowess saw Germany cruise through the 2014 World Cup group stage before bursting into life in devastating fashion in the knockout phase. Beating France 1-0 in the quarterfinal was a tough test. Germany gave Brail the biggest thrashing of all-time with an astonishing 7-1 demolition of the host country in the semifinal. Germany advanced to the final where they took on Argentina. Germany won a scrappy game 1-0, and apart from a glaring miss by Messi, were rarely troubled. 

Germany go into Euro 2016 not just as joint favorites, but as one of the teams many fans will love to watch. In Thomas Muller, Toni Kroos, Mesut Ozil, Mario Götze and Marco Reus, they have a squad packed with individual flair and ruthless determination. That’s a combination that will prove tricky to stop, but if anyone can derail Germany’s ambition of holding both the World Cup and European Championship trophies at the same time, it could be this tournament’s hosts, France.

Can they get revenge for Brazil 2014? Or will Germany reign supreme yet again? The world waits to find out.

How To Make Money Betting On Germany National Team

Germany are a very short +300 to win the European Championships, and go into the competition as joint-favorites with France. But that is not where the value in backing them lies. Back them to win their group and you’ll be getting worse odds than any other group, with Poland, Ukraine and Northern Ireland all unlikely to cause the Germans any problems.

A far better bet is to back Germany at +300 to score the most goals in the tournament. It’s not a good bet because of one particular player, but their team chemistry as a whole. Having battered Brazil 7-1, and slaughtered Saudi Arabia in the 2002 World Cup, they know how to win a match and against teams who give up.

Germany continue to press for more goals. That’s a recipe for value. And as you can see below, they made the Euro 2016 final in imperious form:
