National team: Scotland countdown: Nagelsmann’s plan for the start of the European Championship

With the return to the team’s headquarters in Herzogenaurach, Julian Nagelsmann begins the final phase of preparations for the European Championship. Nothing is left to chance. 4,000 fans are allowed to watch on Monday.

With their return to the team headquarters in Herzogenaurach, the final countdown for the opening match against Scotland begins today for Toni Kroos and his 25 European Championship colleagues.

National coach Julian Nagelsmann has drawn up a weekly schedule. The home tournament will kick off at 9 p.m. on Friday (ZDF/Magenta TV) in the Munich Arena. Until then, nothing will be left to chance for the national football team. Some key dates are already known:

Today, 11.30 am:

Everyone has to be back at home by now. Nagelsmann even extended the weekend off a little. Many players traveled to their families, Kroos even flew to Madrid, captain Ilkay Gündogan to Barcelona. The DFB professionals are already settled into the facility provided by supplier Adidas. Living groups have been put together in apartments of three and four people based on playing positions.

Today, 1:00 p.m.:

This time, Niclas Füllkrug is on the podium at the daily press conference. The Dortmund striker only started preparing for the European Championship in the middle of last week after the defeat in the Champions League final against Real Madrid. In the national coach’s role concept, the BVB striker is the backup for Kai Havertz – but in the goal statistics under Nagelsmann, with four goals, he is just ahead of the Arsenal striker (3).

Today, 4 p.m.:

4,000 fans are allowed to attend. Like two weeks ago in Jena, when 15,000 spectators came, the DFB team will train in public once again. And the atmosphere will be great again. One thing is clear: people in the country are looking forward to some summer football fun. The tickets were free and quickly sold out. For now, it is the last chance for the national team’s fans to see their idols live away from the games. Nagelsmann will then only allow training behind the high fences at the home ground.

Tuesday Wednesday:

Two dates have been announced. Training will take place at 11 a.m., and at least one player will be on the press podium at around 1 p.m. Preparations will continue at the home ground with analysis of opponents, tactical training and treatments by the physiotherapists.

Thursday, 11:00 a.m.:

The final training session will also take place at the home ground. Only then will the team bus head for Munich. Nagelsmann and the Bayern pros cannot stay at home, however. UEFA has hotels available for all teams at the match venues. The teams must arrive there no later than the day before the match.

Thursday, 6.45 p.m.:

Nagelsmann and a player are coming to the Allianz Arena, which is officially called the Munich Football Arena during the European Championships due to UEFA rules. Final information will be provided there at a press conference.

Friday, match day:

A game discussion, warming up, maybe a walk. Nagelsmann will plan the day’s schedule in detail. The bus will take them to the stadium in the early evening – preparations will be over by 9 p.m. The opponents will then be Scotland.
