Germany isn't a sick team and wasn't considered a favorite? Fifa has them ranked #2 in the world! http://bleacherreport.com/articles/...ssing-recent-performances-from-top-contenders Germany, the world’s No. 2 team according to FIFA, had perhaps the most impressive match of the tournament outside the Netherlands’ dismantling of Spain. The Germans defeated Portugal, 4-0, behind Thomas Muller’s hat-trick and a solid German defense that frustrated Cristiano Ronaldo—perhaps the best player in the world— by limiting his opportunities to create.... Germany will likely advance out of Group G, especially if they can defeat Ghana on June 21. Ghana played well in a 2-1 loss to the United States, dominating possession but failing to create enough realistic shots on goal. Expect Ghana to have a harder time holding the ball against Germany. Although the Germans are the only team of the top contenders discussed that have yet to play two matches, they are in the best form of the trio. While that could certainly change with their match this weekend, look for Germany to continue their recent success and defeat Ghana with relative ease. The other two teams discussed were Brazil and the Netherlands. If a top 5 WC team isn't considered sick w/a shot to win I don't know who is.
