This will be one of the toughest matches of the World Cup as a defeat to Germany means they will be knocked out of the competition after suffering a defeat to Japan in the opening game. Spain is in good form as they smashed Costa Rica by seven goals to nil in their opening game. Germany will be looking to get at least a point to avoid elimination from the World Cup.
