Decision Day! Today, Thursday, national coach Hansi Flick will announce his final World Cup squad from 12 noon. Until recently, there was speculation as to whether Flick would call four goalkeepers into his 26-man squad. But that is apparently not the case.
According to the picture, three goalkeepers are nominated, as usual.
