Can the reigning world champions defend their title in Russia?
Even though Germany's win was four years ago, Die Mannschaft are as dangerous as ever as they head to the World Cup as the highest-ranked national team in the world. They topped their qualifying group, but they face a much tougher set of foes in their World Cup finals group: Mexico, Sweden, and South Korea.
With a spine of world-class players like Manuel Neuer and Mats Hummels and an attack that boasts the likes of Thomas Müller and Mesut Özil, Germany's chances of a World Cup double look pretty good.
Lead the world champs back to the summit in the brand-new 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ update, available as a free content download to all FIFA 18 players on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on May 29.
