From now on, Hansi Flick slips into the role of observer and planner. When he calls up the 26 players for the World Cup squad in mid-November, he won’t have much time left to practice and rehearse. The number of training units is manageable.

IThey want to be in the stadiums and look there, said Hansi Flick, “what the players are doing”. For the national coach and his team of coaches, the big observation tour of the World Cup candidates will start next weekend. Flick, for example, will be in Munich’s Allianz Arena on Friday evening, where two crisis-ridden clubs will meet – FC Bayern and Bayer Leverkusen.

Observing, planning, exchanging ideas and discussing: The time until the start of the World Cup in Qatar on November 20th is tight and needs to be well thought out.

“I trust the team absolutely”

Flick must report a provisional squad of 50 players to the world association Fifa by October 21. Every player he nominates will experience it personally. However, the squad is not made public. Because the final nomination – which should take place at Fifa on November 14 – is too close to the start of the tournament, the players have to be digitally pre-registered with the world association for visa and doping controls, among other things.

That’s not too much, and a game. Nevertheless: I have a positive attitude and I absolutely trust the team,” said Flick about the Nations League game against England (3: 3).
