The German national team is under a lot of pressure at the 2022 World Cup even before the second game.
Now there is a discussion about visiting the families in the district.
Al-Shamal - This start was different: Germany lost its first game against Japan, before the second duel against Spain there is already real pressure on the kettle at this World Cup in 2022.
Families visiting the DFB quarters: two camps with the German national team
One thing is clear: a defeat against Luis Enrique's team and the DFB entourage can almost certainly pack your bags.
So how do you prepare for such a “do or die” game?
To all appearances, there is not one correct answer to this question in the DFB camp.
reporter Christian Falk reported on Friday morning, the players' wives were guests in the luxury quarters.
And it is precisely this fact that is causing trouble!
“In fact, there are a few voices in the team that say: does it have to be now?
We haven't done anything yet, we haven't earned anything yet," says the long-time Bayern and DFB expert from Al-Shamal.
Players' wives and children stay two nights in the DFB camp
Sure: If everything went well and Germany could look forward to the second game after a relaxed 3-0 win against Japan, visiting the families would certainly not be an issue.
But the reality is different now.
And that seems to be causing unrest within the team.
Falk continues: "As soon as things go badly, those are exactly the things that are discussed in the team."
The focus: the players who are now “lying in the team quarters by the pool with their wives and children”.
And the other DFB stars, "who only called in their families from the round of 16 or quarterfinals".
Falk knows about the latter: "It annoys them." According to
information, the families are said to have stayed two nights.
"And apparently that was actually too much for some," Falk continued.

Trouble with women players in the DFB quarter: is that why Germany breaks up before the second World Cup game?
Now the question arises as to which way is the right one, as reported by tz.de.
Variant one: Check off Japan's bankruptcy, clear your head, bring a positive mood to the team and feel the support of the family to release new strength.
Or variant two: work hard, conscientiously prepare for Spain and only get a "reward" again when you've pulled the cart out of the mud.

That's exactly what the team (broadcast dates of the DFB team) seems to be dealing with at the moment.
The discussions raise the question: Will the German team split into two camps before the second game at this World Cup?

Julian Brandt takes a position on visiting families
Julian Brandt had a clear stance on this at the PK on Friday morning.
He and Kai Havertz, who also answered questions from the press, had no family visits.
But Brandt clearly called the first option the most effective: "I think that for many, many boys it was a nice feeling to see their children and wives.
There is nothing better than having your loved ones around you.
Accordingly, my feeling is positive.”
Whether the premature German World Cup can be averted will then be decided on Sunday evening (8 p.m.) against Spain.
There you have few worries after the 7-0 opening win.
But player wives are also an issue: a star loves the daughter of the national coach.
