The German national football team has arrived in Qatar six days before their opening match at the World Cup against Japan. After the flight from Muscat in Oman to Doha, national coach Hansi Flick and his players continued to their quarters in the far north of the Emirates.
Numerous camera teams, photographers and reporters were waiting for the DFB train at the entrance to the secluded Zulal Wellness Resort. The last meters of the road through the desert were lined with flags with World Cup motifs. A larger police presence was also on the scene.
The DFB selection had won their last test match on Wednesday evening in Muscat with a 1: 0 against the national team of Oman. After a training-free Friday, Flick wants to start on Saturday with the final preparation for the first game against Japan next Wednesday. Other group opponents are Spain and Costa Rica.
