Al Shamal - The day before the decisive second group game against Spain, national coach Hansi Flick gives a press conference.

DFB-PK with Hansi Flick: The decision on the cast is only made at short notice
But why is the decision postponed?
According to the DFB, the reason lies in the processes, because the German team is about an hour's drive from the Main Media Center in Doha, from where all press conferences are held.
The German team's final training session in Al-Shamal to the north is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Qatar time, i.e. 5:30 p.m. CET.
Despite the tight schedule, the DFB team is obliged to provide a player in addition to the head coach at the press conference on the day before the game.
According to FIFA, this was sent to the participating teams by circular.
If an association violates the guidelines, fines could be imposed.
DFB-PK with Hansi Flick: tight schedule for the national coach and his team
Apparently, the DFB had hoped to hold their final press conference before the second round match at the media center in Al-Shamal, close to the team's hotel.
Apparently, FIFA had something against it and insisted on holding the appointment in Doha, even though this means a journey of more than 100 kilometers for the members of the German team.
So Hansi Flick and the chosen player have to drive from the north of Qatar to the capital.
Although Sunday's game against Spain takes place in Doha, the team will not arrive until matchday.
FC Bayern professional Joshua Kimmich was present at the press conference before the game against Japan, and Kai Havertz and Julian Brandt last answered questions from press representatives on Friday.
