Maximilian Arnold: Corona Falls In the DFB team, the 27-year-old enabled his comeback in the past November, against Liechtenstein (9: 0) and Armenia (4: 1) the Mittelfeldmann was replaced each.

Ridle Baku: Also, the ex-Mainz, who actually acts in Wolfsburg this season mainly as a rail players on the right, was in the last November at the international matches, even scored his first goal against Liechtenstein. However, the VFL Baku works hard like many of his colleagues in this season. On six hits and eight templates from the preseason he wanted to build, currently Baku is in a changed role in two goals and three assists. And has its problems visible. “He’s right now in search of game rhythm,” explains Trainer Florian Kohfeldt, who wants to “shake and protect” the 23-year-old through this phase. However, Baku wants to jump on the World Cup train, he has to leave this phase quickly behind.

Lukas Nmecha: In December, the attacker broke his first in November at A-country games, the ankle, now he is back. Last Saturday against Union Berlin (1: 0) he celebrated his 26-minute comeback as a Joker, in Freiburg before Flicks’s eyes he could play a little longer. “I was already a bit at the end,” says the 23-year-old, “but I have already noticed that there are situations in which I can help the team.” Also the national team? In any case, the contact with flick is not demolished during injury break, immediately after the diagnosis in December they had talked. “Generally, the contact with the DFB is very good,” says the U-21 European champion, “I can not complain.”
