Anton Stach in World Cup form – can Flick get past the Mainz star?

On March 26th of this year, Anton Stach celebrated his debut in the German national team. The defensive midfielder came on for 28 minutes in the 2-0 win against Israel. After a weak phase at the beginning of the current season, the 23-year-old knew how to convince and seems to be in World Cup form. So the question arises: will national coach Hansi Flick pass Mainz?

28 minutes in the friendly against Israel and three minutes in the Nations League against Italy. These are the previous deployment times of Anton Stach. The defensive midfielder could not do much advertising for himself in the DFB team. But in the Bundesliga, the 23-year-old has been convincing recently and is currently in top form. "Everything has been free again for two, three, four weeks, my head is also free so that I can move normally," explained the 2021 U21 European champion on Friday evening after the 5-0 win against 1.FC Köln things are going better for him now. Accordingly, he tries to "smash everything in".

At the beginning of the season, his club coach Bo Svensson had publicly criticized him. "As a result of an injury, "he was inhibited," the coach said, but attested a turnaround for the 23-year-old: "He's a different player. This is the Anton we know from last season. He has a completely different power, a completely different self-image."

And so Stach is again an option for the World Cup in Qatar. Can national coach Hansi Flick even get past him if the defensive midfielder continues to show this form? "I think Anton is a good player and does a great job. Everything else - Hansi does it," says Bo Svensson.
