Löw kicks off the season as European Champion – Waldschmidt, first candidate

In 292 days is the first European Championship group game for the National Football Team. The tournament ticket could almost be booked with two victories against Holland and Northern Ireland. For the opening of the season, Löw obviously builds on a Friborg.

Frankfurt am Main (DP) – Without the injured Leroy Sané, but probably with junior junior forward Luca Waldschmidt, Joachim Löw will start in the European Championship season.

The offensive talent of Freiburg is expected of all teams of the national football team, who wishes to announce the national coach on the social networks of the German Football Federation. Waldschmidt, 23, of SC Freiburg, became the top scorer in the U21 European Championship tournament in June with seven goals. After the long-term loss of Sané due to a broken cruciate ligament, Löw has a vacant position in the offensive zone. Another vice-champion of Europe under 21, Nadiem Amiri, of Bayer Leverkusen, may well be a beginner in the DFB.

Toni Kroos is expected to return to the team. Löw gave the Real Madrid star a break in the June games in Belarus (2-0) and Estonia (8-0). Goalkeeper Marc-André ter Stegen of FC Barcelona, ​​injured at the time, is also expected to return to the team.

Löw himself had been unable to coach the team in June due to an injury and had been represented by his assistant Marcus Sorg.

Continuing with the qualifications of the European Championship, Germany finds itself after three wins in three matches on September 6 in Hamburg, the Netherlands. Three days later, the playoff duel also remains undefeated in Belfast's Northern Ireland. With two other successes, participation in the finals from June 12 to July 12, 2020 would be almost assured.
