Germany must win against Costa Rica to reach the World Cup Round of 16.

How does Hansi Flick line up in this important game?

Munich/Doha – False Nine?

Chain of three or two at the top?

Everything is at stake for the DFB team on Thursday at the 2022 World Cup against Costa Rica (broadcast dates of the DFB team).

Hansi Flick's team needs a three-pointer and support from Spain to secure their ticket to the World Cup round of 16.

It will be all the more crucial how and who the national coach sets up (WM squad DFB).

As always, Flick will say little or nothing about the line-up of his team in the run-up to the game.

Above all, one question comes to mind: Will Niclas Füllkrug start?

The new superstar in the DFB sky was the man of the match against Spain.

But does Flick put him in the starting XI against Costa Rica?

One person who would be delighted would be Thomas Müller.

The Bayern star obviously gets along well with the Bremen attacker on and off the pitch.

At the press conference on Tuesday, the two already formed a harmonious duo.

"If we didn't have so many good offensive players, it would be easy: 'Lücke' in front and I behind," said Müller on Tuesday when asked whether the Bayern system could not also work with the DFB team: "But Hansi has With our quality in the squad, we were spoiled for choice.” In the past, Müller shone in the record champions as a tenth behind world footballer Robert Lewandowski.

In addition to Füllkrug, Leroy Sané is also in the starting XI against Costa Rica.

The left foot missed the opener against Japan because of a knee injury.

However, he was a stimulating element against Spain when he came on as a substitute.

Serge Gnabry, on the other hand, has made two unfortunate World Cup appearances so far, and he could get a break on Thursday.

Youngster Jamal Musiala should be seeded on the offensive.

In central midfield, Flick will again have to choose between Leon Goretzka and Ilkay Gündogan.

Both were allowed to play together against Spain, but against Costa Rica Flick could rather rely on the more offensive variant on the ten and will therefore have to sacrifice one of the two.

Antonio Rüdiger and Niklas Süle proved themselves in central defense against the Iberians.

The question of the full-backs remains.

David Raum delivered one of his best international matches against Spain.

Will Thilo Kehrer choose the safer option back right against the more defensive Costa Ricans?

Jonas Hofmann or the fast Lukas Klostermann are the first options here.

The national coach is a guest at the FIFA PC in Doha on Wednesday.

It remains to be seen to what extent Flick can look at the cards there in terms of line-up.
