Rudi #Völler on performances and results being brought into discussion: "That's normal and natural because our own European Championship is just around the corner. We have to face up to the criticism. It's logical after the exit from the group stage in the World cup." Image
Völler on the Colombia game: "We of course want to win it and try a few things out, but at the same time we want to entertain people. It's not a friendly or a qualifier, but rather a game to show the fans that they count on us." Image
Völler: "We're at the end of a long season, we're tired and we've got heavy legs. We have to find the one or two percent that we lacked in certain areas against Poland."
Völler on the balance between experimenting and picking up results: "If Hansi Flick only fielded his "top side" over the next year, then we wouldn't see the likes of Malick Thiaw, for example." Image
Völler: "Of course it would be nice if we can be successful in doing both, but for me the most important thing is playing well at the Euros."
Völler on head coach Hansi Flick: "It was clear that Hansi Flick would stay on as head coach after the World Cup. He won practically everything that there is to win at FC Bayern and subsequently got off to a good start with us." Image
Völler: "After the World Cup, he did what sets the best coaches apart. He reflected and considered how we can play well at the Euros and how he could get the best out of the players at his disposal."
Völler on discussions about the head coach in the case of a defeat: "Hansi Flick will remain as head coach, that's not up for debate. In the Bundesliga it's the league table that can create anxiety, but we fortunately don't have to worry about that in the national team." Image
Völler: "We're all in agreement that Hansi is the right coach for the Euros and I'm ruling out a departure. However, we have to get the fans back on side after our recent tournaments. We can do that by picking up good results and putting in good performances."
Völler on Hansi Flick's character: "It's of course more pleasant for yourself when you receive praise. The fact that he's facing some criticism certainly isn't nice. But he's professional enough to know that that's part and parcel of being a coach."
Völler: "You have to be able to deal with it and Hansi can do just that."
Völler on the fans' disappointment after recent performances: "We need to show that we are ready to give everything for our supporters. We will need to have lots of conviction out on the pitch." Image
Völler: "If we show what we're made of and how dedicated we are to turn it round, then the fans will be back on side. But right now we have to deal with the criticism and accept that there might be a few whistles here and there."
Völler: "You can see that the fans want to get behind us but we have to do our bit. We want to gain confidence through good results."

Who is Niclas #Füllkrug?

A thread 🧵 Image
Contrary to popular belief, Füllkrug hasn't emerged from thin air. His 19 goals and eight assists played a crucial role in Werder's promotion back to the Bundesliga last season. 👇
He also kept hometown club Hannover afloat with a career-best single-campaign haul of 14 Bundesliga goals in 2017/18, having previously gained some invaluable experience in Germany's second tier with Nuremberg and Greuther Fürth (a combined 24 goals in 85 games).

Robin #Gosens on the defeat in Poland: "We were extremely disappointed to not be rewarded for what was a good game. We analysed the game and have picked out some of the key moments. In the second half, it felt like we pressured them a lot and created many chances for ourselves." Image
Gosens: "Luck just isn't on our side at the minute, and so we're heading home empty-handed. We know that we will only be able to get the country on our side if we win games, which is our what we want to do, as a big footballing country"
Gosens on the importance of the game against Colombia: "I can see how we communicate with one another each day and how we try to improve. We are working incredible hard in order to get back on track. We all hate to lose, but we can see the development in the team." Image
