Germany loses a pillar for its debut against France

Leon Goretzka is out for the debut of the four-time world champion against France. It has not recovered in time from a fiber break that it drags.

You could see it coming until Oliver Bierhoff, Mannscgaft CEO, confirmed it on Thursday. Leon Goretzka, a mainstay for Bayern Munich and the German national team, will miss the debut of the four-time world champion against the reigning French world champion. The midfielder will not recover in time from a fiber break that has dragged on since the end of the Bundesliga and, therefore, will follow the premiere of his team next Tuesday from the Allianz Arena stands.

The coach Joachim Löw already has a plan B. Everything indicates that Joshua Kimmich, Goretzka's partner in the Munich double pivot, is converted into a full-back, a position he already occupied in the past and in which Löw again tried him in the last friendly against Latvia (7-1). The double pivot will be for Real Madrid player Toni Kroos and midfielder Ilkay Gündogan, who made it clear on Thursday that he does not care who his companion is in the midfield. Even so, in Germany they are already crossing their fingers so that Goretzka is ready for the second game against Cristiano's Portugal.
