National coach Hansi Flick brings Marco Reus back to the DFB team

Hansi Flick documents the hoped-for departure for the national team with a first exciting squad and clear positions with Joshua Kimmich and the game system. In addition to eight old Bayern friends and the prominent returnee Marco Reus, the new national coach nominated a lot of youth power for a bright German football future after two tournament flops.

Joachim Löw’s successor and former title collector with FC Bayern called on 18 EM players around captain Manuel Neuer, a trio of debutants that had become U21 European champions in the summer. The brisk Salzburg goalscorer Karim Adeyemi (19) as well as the defensive players Nico Schlotterbeck (21) from SC Freiburg and David Raum (23) from TSG 1899 Hoffenheim are part of the elite circle for the first time in the three games in the World Cup qualification against Liechtenstein, Armenia and Iceland . “You did a great job in the U21,” explained Flick. The whole squad includes 26 players.

Kimmich as the pivot in the center

In addition to European Championship youngster Jamal Musiala (18), Florian Wirtz from Leverkusen (18), who has not yet been part of the A team, and Ridle Baku (23) from Wolfsburg as the fifth U21 champion will be back. “We think it’s a good, an interesting squad with a good mix of experienced and young players,” said Flick of the German press agency. He is “totally” looking forward to getting started.

DFB director Oliver Bierhoff’s dream coach after 15 years in Löw immediately announced some deviations from his predecessor and former boss. Flick makes FC Bayern, with whom he won seven titles, a blueprint for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The record champion is the largest block with eight players. Joshua Kimmich is immediately transferred back from the right edge of the field as boss to the center.

“We’ll see him on the six,” confirmed Flick. After Löw’s unsuccessful three-chain attempt up to the early EM round of 16 knockout against England, Flick also returns to the back four. “That’s the plan at the moment.” The tried and tested 4-2-3-1 system is revived.
