Flick relies on youth in preparation for the 2022 World Cup and Euro 2024

Hansi Flick, coach of the German national football team, has 6 young players, who want to be part of the team that is preparing to participate in the 2022 World Cup and then the 2024 European Nations Championship that will be held in Germany. The trio David Raum, Nico Schlutterbeek and Karim Adeyemi had a great time together during training, while Jamal Musila played the ball with his teammates in Bayern Munich, and Florian Wirtz was with the Chelsea trio, including Kai Havertz, his former teammate at Bayer Leverkusen. “It is always exciting to see young talent progress and how they adapt quickly to the level and make their mark,” said national team manager Oliver Bierhoff. The five players are part of the list of 23 players selected by Flick for the World Cup qualifiers against Romania and North Macedonia next week. Mosiala, 18, played at the last European Championship under former coach Joachim Loew, while Hoffenheim defender Raum, 23, playmaker Wirtz, 18, and Salzburg striker Adime, 19, got their first call-up in the qualifying matches that It was held last September, and Adeyemi scored his first goals in his first match. So far, the 21-year-old Freiburg defender Schlutterbeek has not played any international matches but is expected to get his chance soon. The player remains very happy to be part of the first team after winning the European Under-21 Championship together with Raum and Ademi. “We put in great performances at the European Under-21 Championship and gained a lot of confidence from winning the tournament,” said Schlutterbeek. “We’re trying to bring these qualities here. The level is very high, so you have to keep your focus and train hard.”
