Joachim Low’s 23-man squad is one of the most talented appearing at the World Cup in Russia next month and it appears competition amongst the star-studded group is beginning to heat up.
The Germans have two friendlies against Austria and Saudi Arabia before their opening World Cup fixture against Mexico on June 16 but it appears most of the squad are raring to go right now.

Apparently, in today’s session, Chelsea’s Rudiger was being closely-marked by Kimmich at a corner-kick, and he quickly became frustrated with the attention he was getting.
Rudiger isn’t thought to be a first-choice for Low, but perhaps if he just batters all of his competitors then he’ll be in the starting line-up on June 16, eh?
Do you fancy the Germans to claim the World Cup this summer?
