With all the German quality players around, it certainly won't be easy for Joachim Löw to select which players to take to the World Cup.

The German national team coach Joachim Löw has quite a pool of players to pick from when he is going to name the squad of the reigning world champions for the World Cup in Russia next year.

Of course, picking star players such as Manuel Neuer, Mats Hummels and Toni Kroos will be obvious, but when it comes to some of the spots in the 23-man squad, Löw has tough decisions to make.

Actually, there are so many competent German players that you could form these four strong teams - all lining up in a 4-2-3-1 formation:

Team 1:
Neuer - Kimmich, Boateng, Hummels, Hector - Kroos, Khedira - Müller, Özil, Reus - Werner

Team 2:
Ter Stegen - Henrichs, Süle, Rüdiger, Plattenhardt - Can, Rudy - Sane, Goretzka, Draxler - Stindl

Team 3:
Leno - Höwedes, Mustafi, Tah, Schmelzer - Gündogan, Weigl - Gnabry, Götze, Brandt - Gomez

Team 4:
Trapp - Weiser, Ginter, Orban, Max - Dahoud, Demirbay - Younes, Volland, Philipp - Wagner.
