Since the departure of Miroslav Klose, a seemingly never-ending striker debate has been raging in the DFB team. Kai Havertz is currently taking over the post on the nine, but the Chelsea star is not beyond doubt either. After the game against Japan, Havertz is of course also under scrutiny. But he was now annoyed by the debate about his position.
However, Havertz also admitted that the tasks in the center of the attack are different, that you are "a little better integrated into the game" on the ten and you have to "find other spaces" on the nine. Whether the flexible attacking player also plays against Spain from the start may is still uncertain. In any case, he was self-critical about his own performance against Japan. "As a striker, you have an obligation to score goals. I didn't do that against Japan," he said disappointedly. It's possible that Flick is going for a real top with Niclas Füllkrug or Youssoufa Moukoko instead of the Chelsea star.
