7.30 p.m. sharp on Wednesday evening, Taunusanalage Frankfurt: Several DFB shuttle cars stop at a side entrance in front of the posh Asian restaurant “Zenzakan”. Smartly dressed and guarded by three security men, the stars of the national team leave the cars and, led by Frankfurt goalkeeper Kevin Trapp (32), enter the restaurant in the basement via a staircase.

It’s the secret team evening of the new DFB squad. But one is missing: Leverkusen star Florian Wirtz (19)!

BILD knows: The midfield technician missed the descent at the team hotel “Melia Frankfurt City” by almost a quarter of an hour. Wirtz was later taken to the “Zenzakan” by special trip. BVB defender Nico Schlotterbeck (23) left the restaurant briefly to meet his colleague outside.
Wirtz left the restaurant next to Matthias Ginter (left).

Reason for the meeting: The new DFB squad should grow together again to form a solid team. Werder striker Niclas Füllkrug had already emphasized at noon: “Teams grow with successes, failures and memories.” The evening was planned by the team itself, and national coach Hansi Flick (58) and his staff were not there either.

Before the international matches against Peru in Mainz on Saturday and against Belgium in Cologne next Tuesday, Flick had done without several prominent World Cup stars such as Niklas Süle (27), Antonio Rüdiger (30), Thomas Müller (33) and Ilkay Gündogan (32). . Leroy Sané (27), who was late for team appointments at FC Bayern several times, is currently not in the DFB squad. Instead, the new professionals Malik Thiaw (21), Josha Vagnoman (22), Marius Wolf (27), Kevin Schade (21), Felix Nmecha (22) and Mergim Berisha (24).

Even Kimmich totally amazed… That’s why Sané is really missing from the DFB!

Wirtz, who missed the World Cup in Qatar due to a cruciate ligament rupture, is back in the Flick squad for the first time in a year and a half. “The fact that he regularly dribbles and gets past people one-on-one is a new quality,” Flick recently praised him.

The national team has also met for team evenings in the past at the “Zenzakan”, and the stars of Eintracht Frankfurt also visit regularly. The team evening ended at 9:53 p.m. Bayern star Leon Goretzka (28) was the first to leave the restaurant. Wirtz went back towards the DFB cars alongside Freiburg defender Matthias Ginter (29). The last were Serge Gnabry (27) and goalkeeper Marc-André ter Stegen (30), who jokingly walked out of the restaurant arm in arm.
