Robin Gosens always looks ahead in good spirits. The newcomer rated the upcoming international matches for the national soccer team as “essential” in order to change the mood in the country.
National soccer player Robin Gosens considers the upcoming international matches against Japan and France to be “essential” in order to create a change of mood in Germany on the way to the home European Championship in 2024.
“We absolutely need a sense of achievement for us as a team. It also helps in our situation to get the country behind us again,” said the 29-year-old full-back from Union Berlin before starting the preparations with the first training session in Wolfsburg.
After four international matches without a win, this downward trend urgently needs to be stopped and ideally turned into something positive. “When you’re in this negative spiral, everything goes against you,” said the 16-time national player on the current DFB crisis. “We have to try to get out of it together as a team, as a family. Sometimes that can be done with a dirty win. We absolutely have to get a threesome,” he said before the first of the two tricky test games next Saturday in the Wolfsburg Arena against WM -Fright Japan. The 2-1 draw against the Asians at the end of last year initiated the national team’s early exit from the World Cup in Qatar.
“Pressure is normal in football,” said Gosens about the difficult starting position for the team and especially national coach Hansi Flick before the home games in Wolfsburg and three days later in Dortmund. “We are Germany, we have the right to win against Japan and France,” said defender Gosens offensively.
