Former Bayern Munich coach Hansi Flick might be whipping up an interesting mix for Germany’s starting XI against Liechtenstein:
During the final training today, Hansi Flick used Kai Havertz as number 10 behind Timo Werner. Jamal Musiala played as right winger with the A team — Leroy Sané on the left
That would certainly be a fascinating front line for Germany.
As for Liechtenstein, Flick will not take them lightly.
“They play very well and are well organized. We will need a certain intensity and deep runs to create gaps and holes in their defense. In the first few days we focused more on ourselves. We are sure that we have prepared well,” Flick said (as captured by iMiaSanMia).
Bayern Munich campus phenom Arijon Ibrahimovic (still just 15) had two goals and an assist for Germany’s U-17 squad during its 5-0 victory over Belgium:

Earlier this year we saw Bayern Munich striker Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting miss a call to the Cameroon national team because some dolt had the wrong email address on file for Choupo.
Now, however, Eintracht Frankfurt is being accused of a nefarious deed by the agent of Filip Kostic. Kostic’s agent is inferring that Die Adler gave Lazio the wrong email address so they would not have to tell Kostic that the Italian club was going to bid on him:

Kostic agent discovered it & sent the player a screenshot of the email, that’s why Kostic refused to train.

Eintracht Frankfurt, however denied the claim:

Former Bayern Munich sextuple-winning manager Hansi Flick will start his tenure with Germany minus two projected starters: Thomas Müller and Manuel Neuer.
While Neuer is expected to return this weekend, Müller left camp and headed back to Munich thanks to an adductor injury. Germany is deep enough to win its three games during this break, but there will be a lot of intrigue as to how the team plays and who will take the pitch.
On this episode, we cover the following:
- The injuries to Thomas Müller and Manuel Neuer.
- The positive effect Hansi Flick should have on the squad.
- A projected lineup, including a theory that Flic might use the players he wanted Bayern Munich to acquire over some starters from the Euros.
- A prediction on the match.
Promising Schalke 04 striker Matthew Hoppe moved to Mallorca near the end of the window for just €3 million:
Here is to hoping that Marcel Sabitzer’s fine mustache inspires some other Bayern Munich players to grow them (cough*Joshua Kimmich*cough):
