The German national team coach , Hansi Flick, did not include Mario Gotze and Mats Hummels in the list of German national team players in the 2022/2023 UEFA Nations League. Even so, Flick said that both of them still had the chance to defend Germany at the 2022 World Cup .
Instead of calling Hummels, Flick instead entered the name of 20-year-old Southampton defender Armel Bella-Kotchap. It was the first call for the player.
Meanwhile, for the attacking midfielder position, Flick prefers to call Jamal Musiala, a 19-year-old player belonging to Bayern Munich. Musiala has also performed well in the last few matches with Die Bayern.
Hansi Flick still opens the opportunity for anyone to enter the German national team at the 2022 World Cup . Although he was quite satisfied with the composition of the summons this time around.
