About the goalkeeper issue
In the recent defeats in Berlin against Turkey (2:3) and in Vienna against Austria (0:2), Bayern Munich player Neuer has not yet entered the DFB squad. Frankfurt’s Kevin Trapp was in goal for both games as FC Barcelona’s Ter Stegen was unavailable with a back problem. Neuer is currently impressing with strong performances after suffering a long-term leg fracture.
“Kimmich is a great player”
“Kimmich is a great player who creates play and always wants to have the ball. He has a great opening game! And he can also work against the ball. But for me he is not a classic six,” said the former midfielder, adding: “I think Kimmich is even stronger at right-back. But: if I don’t have another six available in Germany, I just need to adjust Kimmich’s play accordingly. Then I tell him: we don’t have perfect defense. a partner who protects you means you must protect yourself.”
The German national team will play the first match of the tournament on June 14 in Munich. Group games will take place in Stuttgart (June 19) and Frankfurt am Main (June 24). The final will take place on July 14 in Berlin.
