After the short-term failure of Niklas Süle, Hansi Flick is looking for new defense constellations at the football national team as one of the first tasks in the World Cup year.

The Big Short -

With the nomination of his premiere squad 2022 on the way to Qatar, the national coach will give the first answers today. Larger personnel surprises are not expected in the squad for the test matches on March 26 in Sinsheim against Israel and three days later against the Netherlands in Amsterdam, however.

In spite of some failures, Flick relies on the staff with which he won his first seven games as a national coach in the second half of 2021 and the ticket for the Winter World Cup in Qatar could ultimately solve easily with this record.

Alternatives in the defensive wanted

The cancellation from Slee got flick only on Thursday. The 26-year-old from FC Bayern forms with Antonio Rüdiger from FC Chelsea the stem occupation in internal defense. Now a muscle fiberess forces him to watch the DFB year’s threshing. Also, Gladbach Jonas Hofmann, who occupies the external defense position in the DFB team. The left defender Robin Gosens has just returned to a muscle injury at Inter Milan after a muscle injury.

Alternatives in the defensive are the flexible Thilo Sweeper of Paris Saint-Germain, Mönchengladbach Matthias Ginter and Nico Schlotterbeck from the SC Freiburg, which after the first nominations 2021 now also has the best chances of debut in the DFB jersey. No option is likely to be a return from BVB defender Mats Hummels. For Gosens stem position on the left defense side, David Room is governed by the TSG 1899 Hoffenheim and Freiburg Christian Günter as promising candidates.

Bitter the failure of Wirtz

Bitter is the failure of Leverkusens Supertalent Florian Wirtz. The offensive player has accessed a cruciate ligament tear and will possibly be available again just before the World Cup. A nomination of Bavaria Profi Leon Goretzka after its lengthy patella sight problems is not expected.

Flick collects his squad on March 21 in a hotel outside of Frankfurt. Only to the game against Israel the following weekend is going to Sinsheim. Two days later, the trip to Amsterdam follows the prestige duel with the Dutch.
