In the World Cup two years ago a young German squad had captured the imagination of a country and looked poised to take victory on its home soil, something that would no doubt have give great impetus to its Cup Euro soccer hopes this year. But as we all know the German’s fell short and that in itself could be an overriding motivator its Euro Cup betting hopes in a few weeks.
Euro Cup betting fans that recall the ’06 World Cup in Germany will remember a very skilled team that simply could not keep pace when it mattered most against the best teams in the world. Again in the 2008 Cup Euro soccer the Germans will be up against the best competition in the world, but this time they’ll be much more seasoned and hardly a long shot by Euro Cup betting standards.
Cup Euro soccer has produced some unlikely champions over the years, including the Greeks in 2004, but if Germany were to win the Euro Cup betting this summer it would hardly be a surprise. This is a team in slight transition and led by a young core of smart players as it enters the Euro Cup betting. With the retirement of fixture Michael Ballack and legendary goal keeper Oliver Kahn the national team has turned the page on a colorful but ultimately unsuccessful chapter of its Euro Cup betting history.
It will now be up to the next generation of German players to prove to the rest of the Cup Euro soccer community that this is a team to be reckoned with. Although most of the team’s leaders are in their mid-twenties, they’ve all already played in Euro Cup betting finals and the World Cup and so the circumstances will hardly get to their heads.
While most Euro Cup betting fans are looking to the Italians to dominate the field, the Germans will feel little of that kind of pressure and could surprise quite a few people in this Euro Cup betting tournament.
