When Lothar Matthäus played the German team of group E with the Spaniards, a clearly friendly murmise went through the Doha Exhibition and Convention. In recent years, Iberians become a kind of anxiety opponent of the DFB selection, prevented the EM triumph in Vienna in 2008 and stopped the World Cup triumph in the semifinals in 2010. And they beat the German team with 6-0 in the Nations League in 2020 in the Nations League so terrible that it would have rinsed the then national coach Joachim Löw around a hair prematurely from the office.
At the end of the final round draw, but the mienen relaxed at national coach Hansi Flick and DFB Director Oliver Bierhoff. The German team has caught with Japan and the winner of the play-offs between Costa Rica and New Zealand on the paper colorful but sporty absolutely feasible group. The Japanese had a lot of effort to qualify in the Asia qualification as second behind Saudi Arabia directly for the first World Cup in the Arab qualification.
The title win is the goal in Qatar
Costa Rica as a number 31 of the FIFA world ranking list and only pretty New Zealand as number 101 are also no opponents to a fear. In other words, the progress is for the underflick again strengthened German team simply a duty, a preliminary round of preliminary rounds as with the Dessrous World Cup 2018 in Russia would be a tower disappointment. See also the participants so, who have brave after the nine unprecedented games since the EM-from 2021 and the encouraging 1: 1 cure test against the Netherlands courageously and correctly issued the greatest possible goal: the title win.
On the way there would be in the second round of Belgium, Croatia, Canada or Morocco from the group F of the eighth finish opponent - that too is a feasible task. The prerequisites are therefore made in this draw that the German team will gradually grow with the tasks with the tasks, even under a sporting point of view, and can develop themselves back to a tournament team. As it was the case with the phenomenal World Cup 2014 in Brazil.
