Ter Stegen in goal – Flick: Two goals in the World Cup test run

Frankfurt/Main (dpa) – After the absence of captain Manuel Neuer due to Corona, Marc-André ter Stegen will be in the goal of the German national soccer team on Friday (8.45 p.m.) in the Nations League game against Hungary in Leipzig. He “doesn’t have to make a secret of it,” said national coach Hansi Flick after the final training session, which took place on the DFB campus in Frankfurt/Main.

The 30-year-old goalkeeper from FC Barcelona is “number two” behind Neuer, who, like Bayern colleague Leon Goretzka, left the DFB quarter on Wednesday after a positive test. “That can also affect us in Qatar,” said the 57-year-old Flick with a view to the upcoming World Cup on the Corona problem: “We have to react to it and deal with the situation as best we can.”

Jamal Musiala from Munich is fit again after suffering a laceration on his leg during training on Tuesday. Flick gave two goals for the games against Hungary and three days later in London against England. He is aiming for group victory in the Nations League , which would definitely be secured with two wins. “That would be a statement,” said the national coach. In addition, you want to warm up for the World Cup.
