Until it is in Qatar for the crown of world football, it takes a while. But national coach Hansi Flick will not tolerate any negligence on the way to the World Cup. Personal setbacks he mints into opportunities. Newcomers and finally non-Considered play before.
The World Cup mission German running on that Monday night, then those footballers come together, which are currently the best according to the criteria fitness, form and potential, Hansi Flick can nominate (and wants). It’s a, you guessed it, impromptu mission. Because so many business forces are currently decommissioned. The most important: defender Niklas Süle, impeller Leon Goretzka, Offensive allrounder Marco Reus, top talent Florian Wirtz and Storm hope Karim Adeyemi. Even Joshua Kimmich missing because of the impending birth of his third child, at least for now – unclear when he nachreist the DFB team. Names that promise great things. And Qatar Large supposed for Germany produced (not only the new energy partnership): The project aims to return to the world elite. At least.
Plan A the national coach would have made for the upcoming friendly matches against Israel (Saturday, 20:45) and the Netherlands (Tuesday, 20.45) are used to be that a skeleton found that in Qatar German make soccer stability is, But because now the most important pillars of the planned construction are not operational, attacks Plan A (b): Capture and experimentation. Sounds ambivalent, but does not necessarily mean something bad. Certainly not for players like the Parisian luxury reservists Julian Draxler who seem actually miles away in the battle for a place in the tour group Qatar. So offer, wait and hope. In times of Corona and quarantine you never know what until the first World Cup kick-off still anything can happen.
Especially since the tournament begins in Qatar in late autumn (November 21), so in the middle of that period, the infection always waves pile up very high in the. As has been hit hard than about Bayern, the team with the largest contingent of internationals, of Corona and quarantine last year. can and so is the improvisation not only the opportunity for newcomers and non-Considered, but also for the national coach, the creative solutions for key positions to try (or even must). As in defensive midfield, where a fitter Leon Goretzka next Kimmich – of possibly be used as a triple-father as early as Saturday – would certainly set.
Musiala than six-Joker?
Who offers it? An obvious that Jamal Musiala option would be. The 19-year-old has recently been filled the role in Munich. Fittingly for Goretzka next Kimmich. Flick, the this thought quite busy, sees the perfect plants for the role of the center in Musiala. He possessed not just an excellent technique and tremendous speed, but is also “smart in a duel.” Another possibility: Julian Weigl, who must audition again in the national team after a long time, because he structured the game of Champions League quarter-finalists Benfica reliable.
Completely surprisingly, it is Anton Stach, the master power of FSV Mainz 05. He should show times. Whether it is enough for the debut? If anything, probably more against Israel than against the Netherlands. The game against the rival to the first major stress test of the current performance of the DFB teams (ie import more, less experiment). Because “where the crew is,” the coach “can not say” too weak were the previous opponents. For the Cologne Salih Özcan Flick, meanwhile, has still no squad place, but probably one on the watch list. However, the Turks are courting him.
Completely open, however seems to be the occupation of the defensive wings. The eternal problem spot in the DFB team. Again now, both positions must be occupied for breach failures: Right missing Jonas Hofmann, who last year sound to good performance delivered, but not so outstanding that he is his cause must be safe as a regular player after annealing. His counterpart on the left is also missing: The dynamic robin gosens has just returned with Inter Milan after a muscle injury only into playing. David space are of TSG 1899 Hoffenheim and Freiburg Christian Günter as the most promising candidate. For now. And then to Qatar? Returnees Benjamin Henrichs however, should probably (for now) only present at Flick, who anyway already 16 to 18 name for the World Cup in the head may have.
Who is playing alongside Rüdiger?
The art of improvisation needs it in the internal defense. Who plays in the absence of SELE at the side of Antonio Rüdiger? The flexible Thilo Sweeper of Paris St. Germain is always an option, has shown under Flick already good international matches in different roles. Mönchengladbach’s Matthias Ginter, who last very stable Leverkusen Jonathan Tah and promoted Nico Schlotterbeck from SC Freiburg are also eligible. Schlotterbeck has not been debuted yet, but that should be sure to catch up.
No option, on the other hand, continues BVB defender Mats Hummels and that not only because he is just recent from Corona. In general, it looks bleak for the opportunities of the German BVB stars. Only Marco Reus seems to have a place sure if it is fit. That it’s Emre Can, Julian Brandt, Mo Dahoud or Nico Schulz, on the other hand, to Katar – currently hardly imaginable.
The claims to the national team are and remain unchanged. The national coach expects in the coming months, “that a development takes place.” They will also check and see any deficits clearly. For the current course, the goal is so: “For us it is the goal for us to get stability. Each player has to work in itself, not only tactical, but also physical.” Therefore, the nomination condition for the international double pack was full operability in both lots. “If we want to be successful in Qatar, the prerequisite is that all players are cupitized.” And as success for flick defines, he has now made it clear again: “Everyone wants to become a world champion. That’s our great goal.” Let’s not stack deep. “
