“For a greater awareness and presence of German football, the Bundesliga and its clubs, it is important that Germany's best players show themselves at the international level,” Föller added. Part of professional preparation is tackling the next tournament well in advance. The United States, Mexico and Canada will host the 2026 World Cup finals.
Sulli criticizes: “He was not chosen well.”
Just two days after the DFB side's return trip, Dortmund are set to face Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga. Leverkusen player Jonas Hofmann spoke of “divided opinions” in the German Football Association team. “Our body is our capital and it is weak,” the 31-year-old said.
The German Football Association once again confirmed that after the European Championship on home soil and before the World Cup in 2026, a trip to the United States will no longer be possible. After the European Championship, the national team will once again participate in competitive matches in the Nations League. Then follow the World Cup qualifiers. (SID/dpa/lh)
