After the World Cup draw in Doha, national coach Hansi Flick hopes a quick solution in the quarters issue.
“We will look at everything again and then clear,” said Flick before his return journey to Germany. The German Football Confederation must decide between two accommodations, favorite for the tournament in Qatar (21 November to 18 December) is a quarters in the north of the country.
“It’s about where we have the best conditions. It’s quiet, there you can open the window, you’re alone in this hotel. That would be a good thing,” Flick said, but: “It is not yet finalized We still patient. “
The alternative is according to DFB director Oliver Bierhoff “a large city hotel with many other guests”. The advantage: “We do not need to travel there.”
The DFB team starts in the World Cup on 23 November against Japan. Other preliminary round opponents are ex-world champion Spain (November 27) and Costa Rica or New Zealand (1 December).
The preparation can start on the 14th of November due to the ligabeide. “Of course, we think about how we can experience the climatic conditions here as early as possible. We want to make a preparatory game,” said Bierhoff.
