Germany will be travelling to Brazil for the World Cup without their star winger, Marco Reus, after he went down injured with an ankle ligament injury in their final warm-up friendly against Armenia.
While Germany were dominant in their last match prior to the World Cup, with a 6-1 win over Armenia, being without one of their best players for the tournament is a heavy blow.
The Borussia Dortmund player was voted as the fans Player of the Year for the Bundesliga and added 16 goals along with, a league high, 13 assists. He was going to be a key player for Germany.
Still, according to Bovada Bookmaker, Germany are third favorites to win the World Cup at 11/2. Even without Reus, they have a world class squad and should go far. Shkrodan Mustafi, of Sampdoria, will take his place on the 23 man World Cup squad.
