Verdict: Germany win
Best Odds: 1/2
On Sunday afternoon, world champions Germany will start the defence of their title as they face Mexico in Group F of the World Cup in the Luzhniki Stadium.
Germany cruised through qualifying with a perfect record. No team scored more than Die Mannschaft’s goal tally of 43 in European qualifying. At the other end of the pitch, they conceded just four times.
The team ranked first team in the world will be looking to become the first team since Brazil in 1962 to retain the World Cup. .......Read more here.....

As reported by talkSPORT and initially by Sky Sports sources, it seems as if Arsenal are closing in on arguably their biggest signing of the summer transfer window so far: Bernd Leno. The German goalkeeper has been linked with a move away from Bayer Leverkusen for months now, and it seems as if Unai Emery has managed to persuade him to make the trip over to North London as the 26-year-old prepares for the next step in his promising career. .......Read more here.....

According to the Express, Arsenal are set to renew their interest in Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno, who reportedly has a release clause of £22million in his contract.
Leno has often been linked with a move to the Gunners, as Czech Republic goalkeeper Petr Cech is starting to look his age. The former Chelsea stopper produced a number of unconvincing displays last season.
The 36-year-old’s position as Arsenal number one is now looking very vulnerable, with Leno looking like a very viable target. .......Read more here.....

According to Sky Sports, Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil is struggling to be fit for Germany’s World Cup opener on June 17th against Mexico after picking up a knee injury in a friendly game against Austria last weekend.
The attacking midfielder scored in the 2-1 win over their neighbours. However, he was substituted on 76 minutes. Ozil has been training away from his Die Mannschaft teammates and missed Tuesday media day.
Reportedly, the 29-year-old is also still suffering from a long-standing back problem that saw him miss games for Arsenal last season. .......Read more here.....

The rumours linking Thomas Tuchel to Arsenal have been going on for a while now, but it seems as if they’re starting to gain even more traction. The German is widely expected to succeed Arsene Wenger once his two-decade-long tenure finally comes to an end, and it’s interesting from an outsider’s perspective to analyse whether this really is the best course of action.
There’s no doubting that it’s a name football purists will be excited about, given that he’s been making some noise over in Germany for the better part of 10 years. If you aren’t aware of what’s been going on in the Bundesliga, however, then there’s a very good chance that Thomas Tuchel is nothing more than a name to you. .......Read more here.....

Mesut Ozil is and always has been a polarising figure following his initial move to the Emirates. At first, his transfer was seen as a groundbreaking moment for the club as they were able to lure a world-class superstar to their team. Since then, however, a perceived lack of effort in addition to some inconsistent displays have left many to wonder whether or not the German is still a player of an extremely high calibre.
Hidden issues? .......Read more here.....

As reported by The Sun, Arsenal are supposedly interested in securing the signing of highly rated German goalkeeper Bernd Leno.
The Gunners are believed to be the favourites in the race to acquire the 24-year-old’s signature, in a move that would likely cost them around £25 million. This is the latest in a string of rumours surrounding the North London club as we head towards the summer transfer window, although this is one of the first regarding a non-attacking position.

German defender Per Mertesacker has been a rock at the heart of Arsenal’s defence ever since joining the club, but now, it seems as if the 33-year-old is just about ready to hang up his boots due to the stress involved with playing the beautiful game.
During an interview with magazine Der Spiegel, Mertesacker made a handful of somewhat startling comments regarding what it feels like to play at this level. The 2014 World Cup winner and former Werder Bremen star has been at the Emirates since 2011 and has made well over 150 appearances for the North London club. .......Read more here.....

With club football out of the way and international matches in full swing there is only little you can choose from to follow during this dreary fortnight.
You can, however, always choose to surprise yourself and others by supporting England.
The Three Lions have secured qualification to World Cup in Russia and will not have to worry about play-offs unlike some other countries which means we too can relax and watch our boys in action with some top nations over the next couple of days. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal have been famous for developing young players in the last two decades under French boss Arsene Wenger. However, there are some youngsters that have had to leave the club to prove their worth elsewhere.
A youngster who left Arsenal just last summer has been impressing in the Bundesliga for Werder Bremen. That youngster is Serge Gnabry. The 21-year-old left the Gunners for a fee of just £6million in the summer.
He has since gone on to score seven goals in 15 appearances for Werder and scoring a hat-trick on his international debut for Germany in an 8-0 drubbing of San Marino .......Read more here.....
