Nagelsmann also nominated newcomers Chris Fuhrich (Stuttgart) and Kevin for matches on October 14 in Hartford against hosts USA (9:00 p.m.) and four days later in Philadelphia against Gold Cup winner Mexico (2:00 a.m.). Berlin) and Robert Andrich (Bayer Leverkusen). Munich’s Leon Goretzka, who was recently overlooked by Flick, returns to the 26-man squad. Thomas Müller is also there.
On the other hand, Nagelsmann will dispense with Dortmund player Emre Can, who was the last position under Flick, and his colleague Nico Schlotterbeek. Serge Gnabry (Bayern Munich) and Benjamin Henriques (Leipzig) will be absent due to injury.
“We are a new coaching team and we want to see as many players as possible in the national team,” Nagelsmann said. The goal is “to get used to each other as quickly as possible in the short time we have and try to implement the content in the few training sessions.”
The trip to the United States in the middle of the season was criticized by some clubs. However, Nagelsmann demands full commitment: “I expect, even in this short time, that you can see that everyone wants to play in the DFB, and that everyone wants to win games, even here and now. Everyone has to be extremely focused and determined.” Including traveling to the United States of America with the necessary pleasure, the necessary desire, and above all, the necessary greed.”
