Football fans look to Frankfurt on Thursday afternoon. There, national coach Hansi Flick will announce the squad for the World Cup in Qatar in the DFB Academy. A large part of the 26 places in the squad has already been assigned. From FC Bayern Munich alone, seven players will belong to the national team around captain Manuel Neuer. But there are still some question marks.
Especially in attack, Flick has to reschedule after the failures of center forwards Timo Werner and Lukas Nmecha. Bundesliga top scorer Niclas Füllkrug and Dortmund's young star Youssoufa Moukoko are given good chances of a DFB debut at the World Cup. It is also eagerly awaited whether Flick will reactivate two world champions from 2014 in Mats Hummels and Mario Götze.
