Before the game against Japan, Hansi Flick’s team ostentatiously covered their mouths during the team photo. FIFA had previously threatened consequences for wearing the “One Love” captain’s armband. Noisy RMC Hazard: “We are here to play football, I am not here to spread a political message, other people are better suited for that. We want to concentrate on football.”

When asked about the “One Love” bracelet for Danish players Andreas Christensen and Jesper Lindström, the media director of the Danish federation DBU, Jakob Höyer, interjected: “I will answer this question. As I said before, we are here to talk about football. We want to talk about the game against France and we already answered those questions yesterday.”

World Cup 2022: Möller lacks “gallantry” in the German team

first report: After the 2-1 draw against Japan at the start of the World Cup, world and European champion Andreas Möller criticized the German national team’s lack of toughness in duels. “Our team lacked gallantry. In the front when taking advantage of good opportunities, in the back in the decisive duel situations where we missed the “German virtues” that we used to praise! That is not possible at all at a World Cup and certainly not at the first appearance,” the 55-year-old wrote in a column for the Kicker sports magazine. Players from other countries experience lost duels as “a personal insult”. “We are too soft in that regard,” Möller complained.

Before the second group game against Spain, his hopes were pinned “on the undisputed great quality of the attack”, Möller wrote. “Fighting, biting, not giving up an inch against Spain, without these virtues we will have to say goodbye to the tournament.” (smr with dpa)
