Kimi hopes Germany can learn from Qatar World Cup and fight for Euros2023-01-17 13:38
The 27-year-old defender Joshua Kimmich from Germany recently attended the press conference before Bayern Munich 's Bundesliga campaign. He expressed his views on the national team's disappointment in the Qatar World Cup and Germany's Euro 2024 prospects.
Kimmich has played for Bayern since 2015 and has been in the lineup during this period. And he is now a part of leading Bayern to the top four German competitions, and is currently at the top of the Bundesliga.
However, Kimmich's achievements at the club have not affected the progress of the German national team. The German team has had a dismal performance in international competitions in recent years. They were eliminated in the 2018 group stage of the last World Cup. The England team stopped in the round of 16, and was finally eliminated after participating in the 2022 Qatar World Cup group stage after losing to the weaker Japanese team.
Kimmich also returned to the club for mid-season training following Germany's disappointing World Cup performance.
Since Germany is the host country for the 2024 European Cup, Kimmich was asked by reporters at the Bundesliga press conference whether the German team would seize the opportunity to regain its former glory in the international competition. With the sluggish performance in the World Cup, it is very likely that he will need to fight until he is 45 years old before he can win the international trophy again.
Kimmich also reviewed the results of the German team in international competitions. He admitted that the national team did not play a big role within the team during the four years, and many strategies and tactics failed to work. And he also admitted that Germany lacked self-confidence due to their poor record in recent years in the World Cup in Qatar, and finally lost the chance to advance to the round of 16.
Kimmich believes that other teams that have reached the World Cup final, including the champion Argentina, have played in the World Cup with an unbeaten record, which is one of the factors that the German team cannot break through.
The main player of Bayern hopes that even when the national team loses confidence in the face of a strong enemy, it will not easily forget the power to keep going. He said, "We need to move towards this lofty goal before the game starts, and win the game to regain the team's confidence and understanding of the team and individuals, so that we can bring this mentality to the game and make a difference."
