After 5: 1 against Gladbach: Werder colleagues demand a World Cup nomination for the filling jug

Niclas Füllkrug once again demonstrated his excellent form in the 5-1 win against Borussia Mönchengladbach. The Werder Bremen striker leads the scorers list with seven goals this season after his brace against the Foals and is now considered a serious squad candidate for the World Cup in Qatar. When it comes to his teammates, national coach Hansi Flick cannot ignore the 29-year-old.

"He's in very good shape," said Niklas Stark after the Gladbach game. "The national team has great technical players, but when it's really about the clear nine, you can't avoid abundance." (Quoted via werr.de)

Leonardo Bittencourt had already made a similar statement during the week. "Abundance brings everything with you, and above all he embodies a type of striker that is not that common anymore, at least not in Germany," said Bittencourt, who was recently out and celebrated his comeback against Borussia.

Coach Ole Werner attested to his goalscorer "a positive obsession [...] and the unconditional will to win games." Füllkrug is currently showing very good performances and is a very complete player. "He's concentrating on what he can influence. That's the right approach for me," the Werder coach continued.

Füllkrug's strike partner Marvin Ducksch sounded even more aggressive. "Füllkrug works and hard work is rewarded. It was like that last year and now he keeps working and getting rewarded. He's in very good shape, physically too. He's healthy. His body is holding up. You can see how he has a lot of quality", Ducksch praised his colleague about the green clover.

But Ducksch' hymn to his teammate was not over yet. "It's a lot of fun playing with him. He gets into duels that I don't have to go into," continued the 28-year-old, sending a clear message to the national coach: "If he keeps going like this, you can't avoid it to take him to the World Cup."

And what did the leading actor himself say about a possible place at the World Cup? "Let others judge that," said Füllkrug modestly. "I think I'm doing very well at the moment, but there's always a team involved. I'm part of it and I'm trying to do my best. A lot of things are going well at the moment. I'm happy about it because I'm working hard for it ."
