Germany: Borussia Dortmund Win The Bundesliga

If Spain's squad at Euro 2012 will be built around a Barcelona core, Germany's current approach is in symbiotic harmony with the philosophy of Borussia Dortmund. Bayern Munich may supply more players to the national squad (and Mats Hummels could conceivably be the only Dortmund player to start Germany's opening group match against Portugal on June 9), but in their style, their youthful effervescence, and their commitment to attacking football, Germany have drawn significant inspiration from the Dortmund model. Dortmund's relentless pressing and high-octane approach play claimed another scalp on Saturday in the 2-0 defeat of Borussia Moenchengladbach that secured the Bundesliga title for a second successive year.
