Mario Gomez recently came back from an injury that kept him out of action for 5 months and he has been featured in the latest matches of his team with Fiorentina which is great news for Joachim Low as he will need all the players he can get to be completely fit and ready to play with Germany. The former Bayern Munich player is expecting that during the remaining matches he has left with Fiorentina, it will be enough for him to showcase his abilities and form in order to be featured for the World Cup.
“A World Cup in Brazil is the greatest event in which a footballer can play; I do not want to have the feeling that I’m a sparring partner for preparation. I want to make a difference.” Gomez said during an interview.
If Joachim Low decides on implementing a formation with only 1 striker upfront, then it is very likely that he will be choosing Miroslav Klose who is close on breaking the record that Ronaldo Nazario established some years ago as he is the top World Cup goal-scorer with 15 goals scored and the German Miroslav Klose is only 1 goal away from matching the record.
Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil is not going through the best of times after he missed his penalty kick when playing against Bayern Munich during the Champions League 1st leg which was played a few weeks ago, the former Real Madrid player has been a subject of criticism claiming that he is not worth the £42.5 million which Arsenal had to pay in order to secure the services of the German midfielder but according to Joachim Low, he will be counting on Ozil for the World Cup.
“If you’re playing at Real Madrid or Arsenal, you have to live with criticism when it isn’t going well. Mesut can do that very well indeed. I’m counting on Mesut for Brazil, because I know that he wants success in tournaments. He’s shown that in the past,” Low said.
