The day after the early entry into the round of 16, only the substitutes have to go to the training ground. They practice in front of a small audience. Musiala, Gündogan and Co. can take a breather.

The day after the early entry into the round of 16, only the substitute players of the German national football team had to sweat on the training ground. The so-called substitute training took place on the Adidas site in Herzogenaurach in the Adi Dassler Stadium in front of numerous employees of the DFB equipment supplier in a special atmosphere. There was applause and cheering.

The regulars from the 2-0 win in the second European Championship match against Hungary were able to relax and take a breather. The direct duel for group victory is already scheduled for Sunday (9 p.m./ARD and MagentaTV) in Frankfurt against Switzerland. A draw would then be enough for the DFB selection to take first place, after the Swiss could only manage a 1-1 draw in their second preliminary round match against Scotland.

No rotation against Switzerland

Nagelsmann has declared winning the group to be the next milestone. It has a different effect internally and externally, “whether you come first or second,” he stressed. In order to continue the maturation process, he is not planning any rotation, but wants to stick consistently with his starting eleven. “I do believe that it is important that we have as many players from the first eleven on the pitch as possible, just to get into the rhythm,” explained the national coach. According to the DFB, there are no injuries that prevent us from playing.

Four players threatened with round of 16 ban

However, the number of players at risk of a possible suspension in the round of 16 has doubled to four. Jonathan Tah and Robert Andrich were both shown yellow cards in the 5-1 win against Scotland. Antonio Rüdiger and Maximilian Mittelstädt, all of them defensive players, were cautioned against Hungary. Individual yellow cards will only be deleted after the quarter-finals.
