Matthias Erich and Oliver Hartmann report from Qatar
Without Leroy Sané, the German national team will have to begin the World Cup against Japan on Wednesday (2 p.m., live! At ).
According to the DFB, the professional of FC Bayern, which was prepared as a left wing, might not participate in the last training due to knee problems.
With this, national coach Hansi Flick needs to reschedule on the offensive: For the four attack positions in the beginning eleven, there are still numerous promising prospects, but no traditional left wing.
An apparent chance would be to position young star Jamal Musial there.
