2022-11-21 Author: Roman Titov

Germany’s bid for the 2022 FIFA World Cup is very similar in name to Bayern Munich’s bid. This is because 7 people from the base of the main hegemon of recent years have been called up to the national team. Yes, and the coach of the German car of the Bavarian assembly - Hans-Dieter Flick coached Bayern for more than a season and led it to the Champions League title, but decided to take the national team after the long-awaited departure of the best coach in the history of Joachim Löw. At the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, the combat and promising squad of the Bundesteam is going, but unexpectedly there were no forwards in it.

Germany World Cup bid

Germany 2022 World Cup bid: Goalkeepers

Goalkeepers: Manuel Neuer (Bayern), Marc-Andre ter Stegen (Barcelona), Kevin Trapp (Eintracht Frankfurt).

With the first number in the application of the German national team for the 2022 World Cup, everything was clear a few years ago. A healthy Neuer is a real wall and one of those who carry the traditions of the golden team that took the 2014 World Cup. But he has excellent competition - ter Stegen, who has been playing at Barcelona for a long time and the owner of the last Europa League, Trapp, who was able to restart his career. However, Neuner can only be removed by injuries and disqualifications.

Germany’s 2022 World Cup bid: defenders

Centre-backs: Antonio Rüdiger (Real Madrid), Nico Schlotterbeck, Niklas Süle (both Borussia Dortmund), Lukas Klostermann (Leipzig), Armel Bella-Kochap (Southampton).

Right back: Thilo Kehrer (West Ham), Matthias Ginter (Freiburg).

Left back: Christian Günther (Freiburg), David Raum (Leipzig).

In the application of the German national team for the Fifa World Cup, for the first time in decades, there is no Bayern player, now mainly French legionnaires play there. However, there are enough quality players - the new leader of Real Madrid, the incredibly promising Schlotterback and the reliable Süle, the versatile Klostermann. There are few nominal full-backs, only Raum, the rest can easily play in the center of defense and on the flank.

Germany 2022 World Cup bid: midfielders

Midfielders: Joshua Kimmich, Jamal Musiala, Leon Goretzka, Thomas Muller, Leroy Sane (all - Bayern), Julian Brandt (Borussia Dortmund), Ilkay Gundogan (Manchester City), Kai Havertz ( Chelsea), Mario Gotze (Eintracht Frankfurt), Jonas Hofmann (Borussia Mönchengladbach).

By tradition, Germany’s midfield at the World Cup will be kept at the expense of the Bavarians. Kimmich, Musiala, Goretzka, Müller and Sane are indispensable both in the club and in the national team. Müller is going to beat the records of his great namesake Gerd in goals at the FIFA World Cup, Musiala is the main young hope, Kimmich and Goretzka are an iron support without weak points. And then there is the leader City Gundogan and the main attacking force of Chelsea Chelsea, plus the golden boy of German football Götze. Flick will have to break his head ..

Forwards in Germany squad

Forwards: Karim Adeyemi (Borussia Dortmund), Yussouf Mukoko (Borussia Dortmund), Niklas Füllkrug (Werder Bremen), Serge Gnabry (Bayern).

Werner’s injury just before the World Cup in Qatar and the long absence of quality forwards resulted in Flick calling Füllkrug, who had not played a match for the Bundestim. He has a promising bunch from Dortmund in his assistants: Adeyemi and Mukoko, but they have very little experience. Gnabry looks like a veteran against their background.
