South Africa 2010 saw Germany reach the FIFA World Cup™ quarter-finals for the eighth edition in a row.

It would have been a major surprise had they not done so. After all, in 17 appearances at the World Cup, the Germans have only failed to finish in the top eight once - and that was way back in 1938.

There will be long odds on Joachim Low's side bucking this particular trend in Brazil, with the big question whether these seven-time finalists can add to their three world crowns.
