When Werder Bremen take on TSG Hoffenheim on Friday evening, Niclas Füllkrug will be able to prove himself against Hansi Flick. The striker can fight for a World Cup nomination in front of the national coach.
In view of his impressive form, a possible nomination for the World Cup for Niclas Füllkrug is currently a prominent topic on the Weser.
In the first eight league matchdays he has already scored seven goals and was able to set up another directly. Not only is he currently the top scorer in the Bundesliga, he is also currently the most successful German striker. Precisely because there are still problems in the national team's central attack, the calls for the Bremen player have recently become louder.
Flick will certainly not watch this game on Friday evening out of sheer boredom. So it can be assumed that his visit can be understood as a positive and encouraging sign at the filling jug. After all, a World Cup squad of 26 players wants to be filled first. Then why not pick up a nine in form, at least as a substitution option?
Thus, the 29-year-old will get the chance to present himself again. He and all of Werder will hope, both for himself and for the club, that there will be no demonstration effect.
