Germany lineup today against Austria: Does Kimmich surprise Nagelsmann?

Update from November 21 at 1:55 p.m.: Julian Nagelsmann’s home start as national coach went badly. He had previously caused a stir by playing Kai Havertz at left back. What does Nagelsmann surprise German football with this time?

Changes to the team against Austria are likely. However, the former Bayern coach announced that he did not want to rotate too much before the European Championship; this was one of the things his predecessor, Hansi Flick, was accused of. Nagelsmann did not clarify in advance whether Havertz would be allowed to play in that unknown position again. Veteran Mats Hummels may be called up to the starting XI instead of Jonathan Tah.

DFB lineup against Austria: Nagelsmann counters Havertz’s criticism

First report from November 20:

Vienna – The German national team’s last match of the year will be next Tuesday, before the four-month international break. The DFB wants to finally beat Austria again after the 2-3 defeat in the match against Turkey to calm things down a bit. National coach Julian Nagelsmann has not yet revealed his plans for the lineup for the international match, but he sent a clear message to his players.

Event: Vienna, Ernst Happel stadium
Starting: Tuesday, November 21, 8:45 p.m.

DFB coach Nagelsmann made one thing clear after the defeat in the Olympic Stadium in Berlin: “No one is qualified and everyone is invited to give their best,” Nagelsmann repeated the motto. His message: No one can give in now. In Monday’s press conference, the 36-year-old did not reveal much information to the public, but Nagelsmann did give some advice about the personal situation against Austria.

In particular, details were leaked regarding the role change of Arsenal player Kai Havertz, who played in an unknown left-back position against Turkey. “It may also be that we see a different player there,” said the national coach about the position in question. After the duel against the Turks there was clear criticism of Havertz, which the DFB coach responded to in the press conference: Havertz did not lose a duel or a head duel. Reason enough to use it again in the prestigious duel against the Austrian team. “But if he is in top form, he is also an option for tomorrow,” Nagelsmann said before the match.

Nagelsmann, DFB coach before the match against Austria: “There is definitely no other order”

Regarding the game system, Nagelsmann confirmed that “I definitely wouldn’t allow it to be played in any other order.” This means that the German team will probably play with four defenders: Mats Hummels could replace Jonathan Tah in the chain. SGE goalkeeper Kevin Trapp will likely continue playing for ailing goalkeeper Marc-André ter Stegen. Newcomers Oliver Baumann and Janis Blaswich are available as alternatives.

Former FCB coach Nagelsmann did not give any information about Joshua Kimmich. It is still doubtful that he will play alongside captain Ilkay Gündogan in the double six again. RTL expert Lothar Matthäus clearly spoke out against this after the bitter defeat, because Gündogan and Kimmich “do not fit into the double six because they are too similar,” said the national record and added: “They do not do well “. for each other when they play together.” But what might the possible lineup ultimately look like?
