CB: Mats Hummels
The Borussia Dortmund star is rated as one of Europe’s best defenders through his tackling ability and aerial prowess.
Hummels is probably the closest thing Germany have had to Beckenbauer, which is why it made sense to select them both in this line-up.
While he’s no Ballon d’Or winner himself, though, Hummels was a World Cup winner before Low controversially booted him out in March. Still, he will go down as one of Germany’s best with 70 caps to his name.
