Warhead Wild reports from Qatar
- The last tests prior to a World Cup given that 2006:
- The last tests in front of an EM given that 2008:
It is the big question prior to every game and particularly prior to the start of a tournament: Which starting eleven does the nationwide coach send off? And since Joshua Gimmick spoke as a representative of the team at the last worldwide press conference, the coach added a grin to presume that Jo finds the beginning eleven. Safe candidates are Antonio Rudder, Niklas Sure, Jamal Musial, Serge Gnabry, Hilo Keeper.
How did the respective preparation go under his predecessor Joachim Löw (62), who at the 2006 home World Cup was at the side of the then national coach Jürgen Kinsman and got Flick as an assistant after the competition? Their cooperation ended in 2014 with the winning of the World Cup.
The evaluation of the last and just World Cup test in Oman (1-0 success) does not assure illuminating answers, because the nationwide coach used these difficult 90 minutes to acclimatize temperatures and humidity on the Persian Golf. Lukas Klostermann, Matthias Winter or Youssef Mouton will run out the concern for the preliminary development. The DFB chief coach says that the scenarios before this winter tour through Qatar can not be compared to a competition, whether the World Cup or EM.

Conclusion: In front of 4 European championships, two gamers were exchanged twice after the gown rehearsal in front of 4 European champions, when one, once n1. So Löw never ever exchanged more than 2 gamers after the last test and before the start video game. At Flick, this Wednesday versus Japan will certainly be more that the World Cup trip will start, compared to the eleven that was on the pitch a week ago against Oman in Maskat. Flick will not continue the custom that Löw kept with its cost-effective changes in workers between last tests and competition start.
