Actually no, it's not to bring down Germany.
I think you might want to know that most of Bayern Munich's best players aren't German.
Brazil are back now, they were looking weak, but beating Spain has them back in contention for sure. Italy wasn't a farce, I'm not saying that they will win the WC, just saying that they might still have more talent than Germany, cause that's what we are talking about here, who has the most talent, not who is the best or going to win the WC.
So you admit that Argentina has at least as much talent as Germany, if not more.
First sentence shows you're obviously a German hater. Best 3 players for Bayern in the champions league and domestically were the captain,vice captain and goalie. The German side without the non-German players are just as strong if not stronger. No Ribery/Robben? fine we bring in Reus, Muller who is already preferred to Robben, Schurrle,Draxler,Sam and Ozil. I prefer these options anyway. I also prefer the Benders and Khedira to Martinez. Need i say more..
Brazil never went anywhere, they have always been contenders and always will be. Talent is always coming in and out of the region. If there's no Ronaldo, there's Ronaldinho, no Ronny there's Kaka, no Kaka there's Neymar. However to say they are on Germany's level is quite the outrageous statement. For every 5-o win over Honduras or Zambia there's a loss to the Swiss. This world tour was designed to get some hype back for Brazil since that's where the WC is, guess its working.. German youngsters are preferred to Brazilian's everywhere apart from Ukraine and Russia. If Mou could have signed Draxler over Willian, he would have without thinking twice. Same for the option of having Ozil/Khedira over Oscar and Ramires. German players are just incredibly hard to prize away from the Bundesliga. However i will say there's more talent in Brazil currently than in Italy.
talent wise, chance of win wise, Italy are behind Germany. Come on lets not kids ourselves, which position is Italy stronger? Balotelli on his day yes is better than any German striker but the key phrase here is 'on his day'. Aside from the fact that he's already used up his good performance vs us, he's incredibly inconsistent, injury prone and unreliable. He get's carded every game. Who knows he may not even make Brazil. At the start of the season, the two predicted top seria a scorers were both German. Had it not been for injuries, it most likely would have turned out like that. Otherwise where are Italy stronger? don't even mention the heavily declined Buffon or Pirlo in the cm. Those two are the most declined players of the year. Compared to Schweini and Neuer, champions league winner...they are miles behind. The German midfield is miles ahead. Miles ahead. We have a cm spot contested between Gundogan and Schweini. Our attacking midfielders and Wingers? come on man. Same for defense, great mix of youth and veterans. Yes it hasn't been a great year for the national team defensively, but hasn't been a classic year for Italy either.
Argentina have better forwards maybe, just Messi. Midfielders and the rest? lets not even discuss. Aside from Messi and Aguero, this is not Argentina's best period for producing talent. Actually its one of the weakest since i can remember.
i bet you're British
