Germany will expect a lot from Joshua Kimmich, who will lead his national team at the 2022 World Cup. His experience of being eliminated quickly at the 2018 World Cup certainly makes him learn more.

Kimmich who is a box-to-box midfielder is a perfect example of a modern midfield general. He can dictate the game and break the opponent’s play, provide accurate passes, even score goals from distance.

In Group E, Die Mannschaft will face strong teams Spain as well as Japan and Costa Rica. Therefore, Kimmich must perform at the highest level in every match to help his country speak volumes in this event.
