Germany coach Hansi Flick ruled out the idea of his resignation from his post after his team’s exit from the group stage in the 2022 World Cup, indicating in statements to the “ARD” network that this decision “is not related to him.”
“Working with this team motivates me. But the time is not to talk about the future after this match. I’m enjoying it. We have a good team and good players. It’s not about me,” said Flick, who took over the national team’s training in the summer of 2021, succeeding Joachim Loew.
Flick promised to conduct a “quick analysis” of the reasons for his team’s fall, expressing his “great disappointment” in what happened, and continued, “My team and I have done a good job, we have prepared the team well.”
And the German national team came out of the group stage for the second time in a row, despite its victory in its last match in the third round against Costa Rica 4-2, because Japan defeated Spain 2-1, achieving the second surprises in this group after its victory over Germany with the same result at the start of its career in Championship and concluded, “After this exclusion, we have to evaluate what happened and take another direction.”
Japan took the top of the group with 6 points compared to 4 for Spain, which surpassed Germany on goal difference.
