Controversy in Frankfurt: Nagelsmann fears the pitch more than Switzerland

The state of the pitch at the Frankfurt stadium, more than the opponent, worries Julian Nagelsmann before Switzerland-Germany. The coach of the “Mannschaft” does not hide his fears.

“Dreadful” or “powerful”, the Mannschaft is scary!

The blue Sport consultants give their opinion before the Switzerland – Germany duel on Sunday evening. First place in Group A of Euro 2024 is at stake.

“I hope the lawn will hold up. But I have doubts, he explained at a press conference. This stadium suffers from a lack of sunlight. And playing American football matches before this Euro was probably not a good idea. Above all, I fear the risk of injury.”

Despite the qualification already acquired for the round of 16 and the “danger” of playing on such a pitch, Julian Nagelsmann will field his best team. “The goal is to win this third game. I find it disrespectful to deadlock before the round of 16. The team also needs to work on its automatisms,” he says.

“If a player has to receive a second yellow card, he will be replaced in the round of 16 by a man who is up to the situation. I am fully convinced of this,” he continues. Four of its players are under threat of suspension: Jonathan Tah, Antonio Rüdiger, Robert Andrich and Maximilian Mittelstädt.

“We want to beat Switzerland”

Asked whether finishing this group stage in second place in the group to avoid a shock against Spain in the quarter-finals would not be wise, Julian Nagelsmann almost got up from his chair.

“I don’t get into that kind of calculation,” he says. It is certain that we know the various possibilities that will be available to us during the knockout matches. But I can’t see myself telling my players that we have to lose on Sunday. I repeat it one last time: we absolutely want to beat Switzerland.”

German fans confident, even against the Nati

Before Switzerland – Germany on Sunday, the Mannschaft supporters are full of confidence. They also give their opinion on the Swiss team.
