Positive corona test at German football team for World Cup qualification


The German football team had to deal with a corona case at the start of the international match. A player tested positive on arrival at the players’ hotel in Wolfsburg. According to German media, it concerns defender Niklas Sule of Bayern Munich. Monday evening’s team meeting was subsequently canceled and Tuesday’s group training is cancelled.

The German federation does not report which footballer it is. The DFB emphasizes that the player in question is fully vaccinated and has no corona-related complaints. He is in quarantine, as are four other players who, although tested negative, have been in his vicinity for an extended period of time. The rest of the team will prepare for the final World Cup qualifiers against Liechtenstein (Thursday in Wolfsburg) and Armenia (Sunday in Yerevan). National coach Hansi Flick has included a total of eight players from Bayern Munich in his selection.

The ‘Mannschaft’ has already qualified for next year’s World Cup in Qatar with 21 points from eight matches. “It is very unfortunate that this happened so shortly before the last matches in the World Cup qualifiers,” said DFB director Oliver Bierhoff. “But health comes first. We wish the player who tested positive a speedy recovery.”
