Mario Gotze was the guy who scored the winning goal for Germany in the 2014 World Cup final against Argentina. He has made a comeback to the national team after returning to the Bundesliga with Eintracht Frankfurt this season.
“Mario Gotze is there. 2017 was the last time. Mario is totally happy and so are we to have him. It gives us many options,” Flick told in an interview.
Marco Reus had already missed the 2014 World Cup and now he is injured again. It’s sad to announce that he will not be going to Qatar to play for Germany.
“He tried everything to catch this train. It hurts us because we could have used his quality,” Flick said.
Germany’s Best starting XI
Leory Sane and Serge Gnabry – Germany has got two of the best wingers in the world, not to mention one of the fastest duos of the generation. They are going to create problems for wing backs in the upcoming tournament.
Kai Havertz – Chelsea’s striker will have the very responsibility of scoring goals in the World Cup for Germany. Let us tell you that he was one of the players who won the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League title.
Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka – Bayern Munich’s Joshua Kimmich is undoubtedly one of the greatest midfielders on this generation. Moreover, he will have the support of another fantastic player Leon Goretzka.
Jamal Musiala – The youngster has shown his worth in the the Bundesliga. He will surely be an option for Hansi Flick’s ‘yet to be announced’ Germany squad.
David Raum and Jonas Hoffmann – You might not have heard about these two but they will be going to play a very important role for Germany after two months.
Nico Schlotterbeck and Antonio Rudiger – Real Madrid’s Antonio Rudiger won his first Champions League title in 2020/21 season with Chelsea. I don’t know how could Chelsea let him go so easily. He will have Schlotterbeck by his side to support the defense.
Manuel Neuer – What to say about him? He is arguably the best goalkeeper in football history, or at least that’s what most of the football fans think.
