What Germany Needs To Do To Progress…

The 2022 FIFA World Cup is well underway and the German Side faced defeat in their opening fixture against Japan. İlkay Gündoğan slotted home a first-half penalty before 2 late goals in the second half by Bundesliga players Asano and Doan buried the Germans 2-1. Hansi FLick's men then took on Spain in a mouthwatering clash, which ended in a 1-1 draw, and now for the Germans to progress, they need to overcome a tricky opponent in Costa Rica and hope that Spain beat Japan as Germany sit at the bottom of the table.

Other Bundesliga players, who are not playing for Germany, have been impressive so far, with the likes of Bayern Alphonso Davies scoring Canada's first-ever World Cup goal when they got manhandled by Croatia, who had Andrej Kramaric, current Hoffenheim star, netted a brace in that match too!

Hansi Flick has hinted that 7 Bayern Munich Players could start this match and considering there has been a loud voice of unhappiness from the team about the timing, one would think that this German side could gel quite nicely, considering the short gap between the domestic season and the World Cup!

Neuer and his fellow European Captains have had to halt the breaks on a certain move, regarding the '1Love' captain's armbands. The captains agreed that they would support LGBTQ rights by wearing these armbands, but FIFA has restricted this by threatening point docking, yellow cards, and sanctions!
