In the coaching staff We are confident that our game is now at a level where we can take the next step.”

Ray Meier and Bitner were still missing in the third preliminary stage, but DEB had already announced that they were in contact with other World Cup candidates. “Some are taking a break from the playoffs, while others are recovering from injuries,” a press release said. This also applies to Autostdter.
