German Coaches’ Friendly Rivalry Sets Stage for Dramatic USA v Germany World Cup Match

German football coachs Klinsmann and Loew

Friendly rivals, German football coaches Klinsmann and Loew

The soccer World Cup brings the whole world together for 64 games of intense sports competition but no game has more potential for a dramatic finish than USA v Germany June 26th.

“The coach of the US team, Jurgen Klinsmann is German,” noted one online oddsmaker. “He’s not only a famous former German international player, but he also coached the national team at the 2006 World Cup in Germany where they lost in the semi-finals to Italy. His assistant back then, Joachim Loew, is now Germany’s head coach. The two are friends, but will be fierce rivals when it comes to securing a place in the knockout phase this time around.”

I don’t have too many friendships that could stand that kind of pressure, myself. Let’s see if they’re still buddies after World Cup Brazil.

“We could see German striker Miroslav Klose break the record for career goals in World Cup Finals,” my bookmaker friend (neither German or Brazilian by the way) continuted. “The German veteran currently has 14 goals to his name, just one shy of former Brazilian star Ronaldo’s record. Klose is the only striker nominated for the Germany squad, so he could get a few chances to break the record if he can overcome pre-tournament fitness problems.” World Cup odds currently have the USA at +600 and Germany -222 for that match.

“We have hundreds of World Cup bets but one that’s really getting a lot of action is Top Goal Scorer,” said the bookmaker. “People seem to think Lionel Messi (+700) might do it despite his poor performances lately. Neymar (+1000) looks very good. And never underestimate Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo (+1400).”
