Is there nonetheless an enormous World Cup shock?
National coach Hansi Flick (57) has the appropriate hopes for all German strikers, and when requested about strikers like Füllkrug, Therodde or Petersen, he stated: “Since we’ve three extra choices, it’s true that we within the teaching group are additionally pondering. : What qualities and traits somebody brings with them to sure conditions – in different phrases, a sort of “if-then technique”. At this specific second, we could take a participant away.”
Meaning: The concept is to take traditional scissors with you, for instance, if it’s essential use a traditional “crowbar” once you fall behind within the final stage.
David Odonkor (38) was an enormous shock on the 2006 World Cup and was nominated for the event primarily for his velocity.
BILD tells who has an opportunity to grow to be “Qatar Odonkor” now.
Niklas Füllkrug (29/Werder Bremen): The Bremen participant is at present probably the most correct German striker within the Bundesliga with 5 targets. And he matches the profile: robust, robust within the air, an actual striker within the penalty space. If he retains batting till the World Cup, he has an opportunity. He himself merely stated: “Now it is the worldwide break, I’m not there. Of course, he has his causes and that is effective. It does not make sense to maintain speculating about it. There’s no purpose for me. Then we are able to speculate in regards to the summer time switches that we would have.
Simon Therodde (34/Schalke): Last season, Schalke scored 30 targets within the Bundesliga. Flick stated on the time: “We are watching him intently. We will see how issues go subsequent season, if he can rating targets within the first division. If he performs at a excessive stage, it’s the Bundesliga – and he will do effectively there and make targets for him, all doorways and gates are open.” But that is the issue with Therod: it does not at all times work within the first division, only one aim up to now. He ought to have began scratching rapidly.
Nils Petersen (33/Freiburg): He was within the provisional squad till the final World Cup, however was later dropped. The greatest wildcard within the Bundesliga lately, he nearly at all times scores when he comes on. But: Very little performs in Freiburg in the mean time – and has but to attain.
Jonathan Burkardt (22/Mainz): Our U21 striker is seen by many consultants as a future striker within the DFB crew. But he’s now injured and has not scored a aim this season.
Kevin Volland (30/AS Monaco): Was in EM however not a traditional penalty space cutter. Due to a leg damage, he didn’t play a lot in France, however scored a aim in opposition to PSG.
Yusufah Moukoko (17): Or will Mukoko be a shock on the World Cup? The future belongs to him anyway. It’s not a traditional penalty field cutter, however it’s highly effective and really harmful. BVB secured the victory within the derby together with his personal aim. But for an actual probability on the World Cup, extra needed to be performed.
Jan Thielmann (20/Cologne): Not a traditional striker, oscillates between high striker and outdoors lane. One for the longer term, however this Saiosn solely scored one aim.
Davy Selke (27/Hertha): The kind of hideous penalty space digger that runs by means of all DFB youth groups. But if Hertha at present solely has 89 wildcard minutes for the entire season, he does not stand an opportunity.
One factor is obvious to everybody: when you actually need to reap the benefits of the surprising, you need to hit, hit, hit – that is the place Füllkrug at present has the very best proof …
