The fact that Hansi Flick’s second squad would not look exactly like the first was foreseeable at least since the European Cup games during the week. Only on Tuesday evening Mahmoud Dahoud (overstretched inner ligament) injured himself in Dortmund’s win against Sporting (1-0), the next day Robin Gosens had a hard time in Bergamo.

The left-back tore a tendon in his thigh early in the 1-0 win against Bern and will be out for three months. And Ilkay Gündogan (thigh injury) has been missing for a long time anyway.

On Friday, Flick announced the line-up for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Romania (October 8th) and North Macedonia (October 11th). As reported by kicker, Mats Hummels is not there again. For the first time, Flick nominated Matthias Ginter and Marc-André ter Stegen as returnees.
