The four-time World Cup winners had a poor campaign in Qatar, which included defeat against Japan in their opening game before they crashed out in the group stage for the second consecutive time.
Germany trainer Hansi Flick will keep his job and lead the platoon to Euro 2024 despite their crushing World Cup disappointment, the German Football Association( DFB) said on Wednesday.” We’ve full confidence in Hansi Film that he’ll master this challenge together with his platoon,” Bernd Neuendorf, chairman of the DFB, said in a statement after a extremity meeting with Film. The move means Film, 57, will get the chance to seek redemption at the Euros on home soil in Germany.” My coaching platoon and I are auspicious about the European Championship in our own country,” Film said.
“We as a platoon can achieve much further than we showed in Qatar. We missed a great occasion there,” he added.
“We’ll learn our assignments from this.”
Film took over as Germany trainer from former tutor Joachim Loew after the European Championship in 2021.
He’d preliminarily served as deputy to Loew in Germany’s 2014 World Cup triumph as well as leading Bayern Munich to a treble in 2020.
He made a flying launch to the job with eight triumphs, leaving Germany confident title into the event in Qatar.
Germany forward Kai Havertz compared his side’s World Cup elimination to” watching a horror movie”, with the platoon discovering their fate when the result of the game between Japan and Spain was displayed in the colosseum. The four- time titleholders defeated Costa Rica 4- 2 but were knocked out due to Japan’s surprise 2- 1 palm over Spain, which saw the Blue Samurai eclipse the group. Despite also finishing on four points, Spain progressed ahead of Germany on thing difference.
Havertz, who scored two alternate- half pretensions after coming off the bench on Thursday, said the way the players set up out about their World Cup exit made it indeed more delicate.
“When it happens this way, it feels like watching like a horror movie,” said Havertz.
“We learned during the match that Japan were leading, and also the rankings were displayed in the colosseum. We still had a little stopgap that Spain would score.
“But also we noticed that the Japan match was over.”
Havertz criticized the platoon’s performance against Japan for their elimination and suggested that all wasn’t well in German football.
“When you go out doubly in the first round and formerly in the round of 16, it’s extremely bitter.
“We’ve to be honest and say that for four times, everything hasn’t been going well.
“Now we have been knocked out doubly in the group stage. I do not suppose we are a event platoon presently.”
Still, the four- time World Cup winners crashed out in the group stages after losing to Japan in their opening game.
Film had said on the night Germany went out that he wanted to remain in the job and see out his contract.
Still, the same was true of platoon director Oliver Bierhoff, who nonetheless went on to stand away before this week– important to Film’s disappointment.
He’ll now be faced with the task of leading Germany to palm at the European Crowns without his close confidante.
