Coach of the reigning World Cup champions Joachim Loew has shared his expectations ahead of the defence of the crown they won three years ago in Brazil.
Germany will be in action in the World Cup 2018 in Russia and Loew while speaking on their chances and options available to him ahead of the championship also shed lights on teams he expect to do well at the World Cup.
” We know some very good teams from all over the World are coming, like in Africa Morocco did well in the qualifying series and they will be the team most people would be expecting to pull surprises from Africa”, he said while discussing potential giant killers in Russia next year.
Although Nigeria were the first African nation to qualify for the World Cup, Morocco just like Nigeria stayed undefeated throughout the series but unlike Nigeria they didn’t concede a single goal.
Coach by respected French coach Herve Reinard, Morocco are viewed by many as the best team coming from Africa although Nigeria, Senegal and Egypt are usually mentioned in same breath.
