I learned that it is correct to use the present tense or future tense to refer to the future after certain expressions like
1) I bet that my sister finds a job by next week. (or will find)
2) I hope that Germany wins the world cup in 2014. (or will win)
What happens if I replace 'I hope' with the sentence adverb 'hopefully'
Would it be correct to say for future reference' Hopefully, Germany wins the world cup in 2014.'
or 'Hopefully, Germany will win the world cup in 2014.' as the word 'hopefully' means the same as
'I hope that Germany.......'
Greetings from Germany
