Today, Friday, Hansi Flick appointed his first squad as the national coach of the German men’s national football team for the World Cup qualifiers against Liechtenstein, Armenia and Iceland. Joachim Low’s successor has less than a year and a half until the tournament in Qatar, for which the DFB will not qualify at all according to the current table.
Accordingly, it is to be expected that the new head coach will continue to rely on a well-practiced axis, which should mainly consist of key players from FC Bayern. But there’s a high chance that the flick will send some accents. The first nomination of a new national coach is also a sign of an eventual departure, which may be underscored with new faces. The most promising candidates are the talents of Stefan Kuntz’s successful U21 European Championship team.
Ademi before debut
NS build newspaper reports that the two of them have the best cards to join Flick’s first squad. On one hand it is called Karim Adeyemi. The lightning-fast attacker from RB Salzburg has been in the news for some time now as the debutant under Flick. Hermann Gerland is said to have evaluated the 19-year-old as a scout for the DFB. The second persona brought into play by the tabloids is a bit of a surprise.
Room after three Bundesliga games?
David Raum from TSG Hoffenheim should also be able to count on the nomination for the first time. The left-back will play his third Bundesliga game in the evening against Borussia Dortmund, having spent his previous career with newly promoted SPVG Gruther Firth. The 23-year-old is considered a very strong attacking player, having scored 15 goals for Clover in the preseason. On the DFB team, Robin Gossens should initially be on the left, behind whom Lo has tried hard in recent months. So now space should be given.
