Duisburg - More than four months have passed since the embarrassing 6-0 swat against Spain *.

Since then, the national team has not played a game, the internal discussions at the DFB became louder, especially due to the resignation announcement by national coach Joachim Löw *.

"We don't just want to start the World Cup qualifying with good results, we want to show ourselves positively to the fans after we got out of the year very badly in November," said the 61-year-old's announcement at the press conference on Wednesday * .

Against the 46th in the FIFA world rankings, Löw's team wants to “show their fighting and running skills” and “fight doggedly for victory”.

The national coach expects a low opponent, which is why "functioning offensive actions" are urgently needed.

The DFB newcomers Florian Wirtz and Jamal Musiala could provide a breath of fresh air in this regard, in their teams the two teenagers are always good for a goal participation.

Frankfurt's Amin Younes is also back in the squad after three and a half years without an international match.

The Icelanders also have a minor crisis.

After participating in a World Cup finals for the first time in 2018, the up-and-coming football nation only failed to qualify for the European Championship in the playoffs.

The last five games were all lost, but the DFB stars shouldn't underestimate their opponents.

With Premier League professionals Gylfi Sigurdsson from Everton, Iceland also has a star in its own ranks - but the offensive player is out.

Midfielder Victor Pálsson even earns his money in Germany, but in the 2nd Bundesliga at SV Darmstadt 98.
