Hansi Flick: “It will be a tough test for us.”

Speaking ahead of Germany’s UEFA Nations League game against England, head coach Hansi Flick discussed the rivalry with England and their qualities.

“England are a really physical side and it will be a tough test for us. We are nevertheless looking forward to it. It’ll be important to match their physicality and to play our own game,” said Flick. “It’s a special game for us. We need to get the fans pumped up as we are with some attractive football.”

On the upcoming game, Flick added: “We have prepared well for England. If we stick to our plan, we’ll hopefully put in a good performance and get the win in front of a sold-out stadium in Munich.”

Speaking on whether Kai Havertz or Timo Werner will start as Germany’s No. 9, Flick told reporters: “I’ll keep my thoughts to myself, but both can play in that position.

“Timo is a bit underrated for what he does for the team. He creates spaces in front of the defence. Both are an option.”
