Replace in half time
Koretska actually returned to the square later. Bayern, who has the upper body of a bodybuilder, played until professional half time, after which national coach Flick kicked him off the field. “He could have played after half time, but we didn’t want to take any chances and we knocked him out,” Flick said after the game.
Koretska is not against Armenia
And he made it clear at the outset: “He’s re – tested and I think he can go to Armenia on Saturday,” Flick said after the game: “Lyon is a player we need – especially in the current situation.
A day later the correct diagnosis was relaxed: Koretska suffered an injury to the head and neck area, so the national coach was not available for the last international match of this year. Goalkeepers Manuel Neuer and Marco Reus did not travel to the last World Cup qualifiers for “stress control reasons” and Antonio Rudiger did not see a yellow card.
The final qualifier for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar is played on Sunday in Armenia, Germany (6pm, live radio broadcast on BR24). The German Football Association (DFB) team has already qualified for the World Cup.
