The Strength In Depth Germany Have In Their Squad Ahead Of 2018 World Cup Is Insane

To showcase their incredible strength in depth, we put together three teams that could feature under Didier Deschamps this summer. From Kylian Mbappe to Antoine Griezmann, these teams combined youth with experience, pace with power - they basically blended the perfect match between attack and defence.

Step forward Joachim Löw's incredibly talented Germany squad - a team that has plenty of talent at their disposal ahead of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

The fact that the likes of Ilkay Gundogan, Marco Reus and Leon Goretzka might not even feature in the starting XI proves my point. Would these players feature for England? Yes.

France also have at least four capable players to cover each position. If Paul Pogba is injured, then the likes of Adrien Rabiot or Blaise Matuidi could step in.

If you look at the below, France have five 'world class' strikers to choose from. Griezmann, Lacazette, Benzema, Mbappe and Dembele.

Without doubt the most impressive aspect of the above squad is its midfield. The strength in depth here is just remarkable.
