ZDF expert Kramer angry about specific questions from moderator Müller-Hohenstein

Update from December 1, 7.50 p.m .:

The tension is rising: Germany is about to play Costa Rica in the round of 16.

Don't miss anything here!

Update from December 1st, 7.40 p.m .:

ARD is discussing whether Niclas Füllkrug should have been in Germany’s starting XI.

The attacker from Werder Bremen had previously said in an interview that he basically wanted a place in the starting line-up.

The brawny striker has already scored two goals in three international matches and 76 minutes.

"We will still need him.

I think he will still play a role," says expert Thomas Hitzlsperger about the 29-year-old from Lower Saxony.

Bastian Schweinsteiger warns against Joel Campbell: Costa Rica's attacker stormed for Arsenal

Update from December 1st, 7.40 p.m .:

ARD expert Bastian Schweinsteiger warns of striker Joel Campbell.

"He's dangerous, he can score a goal," says the world champion of the 30-year-old attacker, who used to play for Arsenal FC, Villarreal FC, Olympiacos Piraeus and Betis Sevilla.

Update from December 1, 7:25 p.m .:

Costa Rica is expected with a compact chain of five, densely staggered and deep in their own half.

To compare the magnitudes: Some players in the Central American squad have a market value that is similar to that of a third-division professional in Germany.

Their superstar is, of course, PSG goalkeeper Keylor Navas.

Müller storms instead of a filling jug: national coach Flick justifies the decision

Update from December 1, 7:15 p.m .:

National coach Hansi Flick is on the microphone at ARD.

"I'm not nervous.

We did everything in advance.

My team did an excellent job," explains Flick: "A World Cup is just great, that's why you started the job."

He talks about the formation of Germany.

“One position was open for a long time, the one at the front.

Thomas (Müller) has great qualities through his experience and as an organizer.

He made an unbelievable amount of meters against Spain," he says: "Thomas is someone who pushes the team."

Update from December 1, 6:50 p.m .:

DFB manager Oliver Bierhoff explains in the ARD interview why Niclas Füllkrug is not allowed to storm from the start.

"It was a difficult decision for the coaches because Niclas had such a great start.

But of course Thomas is an incredibly experienced player,” said the 1996 European champion about Munich’s Müller.

Lineup of the DFB team: Kimmich as a right-back, jug on the bench

Update from December 1st, 6:43 p.m .:

The list of the German team is there.

Füllkrug sits on the bench, takes on the joker role again.

Apparently, Flick sets up Bayern's Kimmich as a right-back.

Because: Goretzka and Gündogan both start.

Leroy Sané, Thomas Müller, Jamal Musiala and Serge Gnabry also start.

This means that all six Munich players from the World Cup squad are on the field.

The arena is said to have cost 770 million euros.

Lineup of Germany against Costa Rica: Either Gündogan or Goretzka?

Update from December 1, 6:15 p.m .:

Germany’s line-up against Costa Rica is eagerly awaited.

As the


writes, Joshua Kimmich will definitely start.

In addition to Munich, his Bayern colleague Leon Goretzka or Ilkay Gündogan will appear.

Means: One of the two midfield strategists has to sit on the bench first.

One question probably interests German football fans the most: Can “Neuner” Niclas “Lücke” Füllkrug play from the start?

Morocco and Croatia move into the round of 16: secret favorite Belgium fails in the World Cup preliminary round

Update from December 1, 5:59 p.m .:

The next two round of 16 participants at the 2022 World Cup have been determined.

Belgium and Croatia drew 0-0, which also put the Balkan team in the round of 16.

Update from December 1, 5:25 p.m .:

National coach Hansi Flick made a focused but relaxed impression before the decisive World Cup game against Costa Rica.

“We designed it ourselves to be where we are now.

We have to give 100 percent on the field, that's our responsibility," said the man from Baden at the press conference on the game in Qatar: "We no longer have progress in our own hands because the result in the first game wasn't what we wanted introduced us.

We want to get into the knockout stage, that's what we're here for.

I don't feel any pressure at all."

If Germany reaches the round of 16?

With that, the Croatians would also be further.

Before Germany's showdown against Costa Rica: Group opponents Spain and Japan come to an agreement

Update from December 1, 4:55 p.m .:

Just a few hours before their national teams meet at the World Cup in Qatar, the football associations of Spain and Japan have announced a collaboration.

This was announced by the Spanish association RFEF after a joint meeting with the association leaders Luis Rubiales and Kohzo Tashima this Thursday in Doha.

The two umbrella organizations had already agreed to cooperate with a handshake in 2020, then the corona pandemic intervened. 

Spain wants to promote its candidacy for the 2030 World Cup together with Portugal and Ukraine in the next few years in Asia.

Spain and Japan are planning international matches at different levels and cooperation in women's football and refereeing.

The two national teams meet this Thursday evening at the Khalifa International Stadium in the last matchday of Group E.

If Japan wins, Germany would need an 8-0 win over Costa Rica to overtake Spain.

"Hello guys, now it's off to the final training before our game against Costa Rica.

We'll do everything we can to stay in the tournament.

The game against Spain gave hope for more.

And we want to confirm that.

Here we go!"

The DFB team has reason to celebrate: Today is BVB defender Nico Schlotterbeck's birthday

Update from December 1, 4:25 p.m .:

Before the round of 16 showdown, there is something to celebrate in the German team – hopefully afterwards too.

Nico Schlotterbeck is celebrating his 23rd birthday this Thursday.

The central defender was not convincing in Germany's World Cup opener against Japan (1: 2).

He was substituted on against Spain.

"Happy Birthday to one of the thickest skulls I've hit so far," wrote BVB colleague Mats Hummels on Instagram, alluding to the scene when both Dortmunders collided with VfL Bochum.

Hummels called Schlotterbeck "above all one of the best central defenders of the next 10 (maybe 12, but first of all, get old) years".

National coach Hansi Flick had done without veteran Hummels in his World Cup squad, although the 2014 world champion has been in very good form for months.

Update from December 1, 3:23 p.m .:

The countdown is on!

In around four and a half hours, Germany will be fighting Costa Rica for a place in the round of 16 at the World Cup.

Costa Rica against Germany in the live ticker: Today in Qatar it is about the World Cup round of 16

First report from November 30, 6:01 p.m.:

Munich/al-Chaur – Niclas “Lücke” Füllkrug needed a full 76 minutes for two goals in the DFB jersey.

This means that the Werder Bremen striker will promptly become a beacon of hope at the 2022 World Cup (schedule).

Does football Germany have a “real nine” with him again?

A center forward with rough edges?

A clipper on the front line?

The hymns of praise for the beefy attacker can be heard at least everywhere after the German national team's 1-1 (0-0) win over Spain.

Now the 29-year-old attacker is supposed to take on Costa Rica this Thursday (8 p.m. CET).

So that after a botched start something will still happen with the World Cup round of 16.

At least that's how many fans see it - according to social media - and also experts for the World Cup in Qatar (November 20th to December 18th).

Starting eleven for Niclas Füllkrug?

Fans and World Cup pundits call for a "gap" from the start

A fan wrote on Twitter under the hashtag #full mug: "Long live the center forward with more than 85 kg and more than 185 cm.

The jug tore the damned net.

Please @DFB_Team stop with this wrong 9 tactic... We need REAL NINES.” Ex-soccer player Sami Khedira was asked in the ARD panel of experts what it takes to progress.

"Filling jug," replied the 2014 world champion dryly and directly at the same time.

In the same program, ex-national goalkeeper Almuth Schult promoted a starting eleven for the new German fan favorite.

Lars Stind from Borussia Mönchengladbach explained: "When he came in, with his presence, he gives us a different touch in the game.

And how he asserts himself in this situation, how he takes the ball away from Jamal Musiala and hits the ball into the far corner with conviction.”

He also liked the "jubilee run", said Stindl, "how happy the team was for him".

Ex-national player Michael Ballack confirmed on


: "Of course there is this momentum that you need in a tournament like this.

That the team really believes in itself again.

That (

Füllkrug, ed

.) is a player who brings something different: The body language, the type of striker that we kind of long for.

That was a statement coming in like that.”

The body language, the type of striker that we kind of thirst for.

Michael Ballack on Niclas "Lücke" Füllkrug

Berti Vogts, who became European champion as a coach with Germany in 1996, even promoted a new centre-forward campaign in German football.

When asked about the filling mug, Vogts told the

Rheinische Post

: "That's a good German tradition.

Let’s think of Uwe Seeler, Gerd Müller, Horst Hrubesch, Rudi Völler, Jürgen Klinsmann and Oliver Bierhoff.”

Does national coach Hansi Flick hear them all when setting up the DFB team?

Germany needs a win against Costa Rica – and support from the Spaniards.
