National team: Musyala should judge the national team against England

National team: Musyala should judge the national team against England

London, Wembley, England – The prospect of a very special football evening with great emotion especially excites the youngest member of the German Football Association team. During the last training session of the national team, Musyala played the ball with special skill. Then he made some short passes back and forth with Manchester pro Ilkay Gundogan as another England expert.

After his unsuccessful use of pranks in the realistic 0-1 draw against Hungary, Musyala should play right from the start in London against England (September 26, 8:45pm live radio report), national coach Hansi Flick has confirmed. “It’s also a great thing for him.”

Chance for Schlutterbeek and Havertz?

The national coach will make more changes after the tangible defeat against Hungary (0:1). Suspended defender Antonio Rudiger is likely to be replaced by Nico Schlutterbeek, who could form the Dortmund duo with Niklas Sule on the inside. “We’re still thinking about how to do that,” Flick said on Sunday, and he posed Mathias Ginter or Armel Bella Kotschap as alternatives. Thelo Kehrer is expected to play in a four-way defense, and Kai Havertz could start at Wembley Stadium.

“We want to do one or the other tactically and above all to put our faith in the players,” said the national coach. Against Hungary, Barcelona’s Marc-Andre ter Stegen will be in goal.

A duel injury with Muller is as good as it heals

Days ago, Musyala was injured in training. In a duel with Thomas Muller, he suffered a painful tear in his leg. She received medical care at the same time and is now at the same level of recovery.

Musiala: “England is my second home”

Musiala moved to England with her family when she was seven years old. There he trained at Chelsea FC. In 2019 he moved to FC Bayern Munich and got off to a great start in Munich. He still says today: “England is my second home.”

Last use of Wembley in the World Cup by Knockout

As a junior, Musiala played mostly for English youth teams before deciding to join the German first team. So the matches against England are a “big thing” for him. He’s already experienced that feeling, even at Wembley: Flick’s predecessor Joachim Loew only turned him on in injury time in Germany’s knockout against England in the Euro 2021 round of 16 – too late.

Excellent in the first leg in Munich

In the 1-1 draw in the Nations League first leg against England in June, Musyala played well in the first leg in Munich. Fans voted him “The Game Player”. In the Nations League final in England, he can once again prove what he’s made of.
