The German U21 has continued in its own hands in the European Championship qualifier. In March, a trailing duel is waiting.
At the end of a successful year, Antonio DI Salvo reveled again in memories. I ll always look at a nice year 2021, said the coach of the German U21 footballers satisfied. Only European champion as an assistant of Stefan Kurtz, then successor to the success trainer and at the end of the table leaders in the EM qualification.
With the loose 4: 0 (3: 0) against San Marino succeeded the German offspring a reconciling seasonal completion — and at the same time reparation for the 0: 4 debacle four days before against Poland. We made a step forward, but there is still a lot of air up, said Cologne Noah Auerbach self-critical.
In any case, the starting position in the EM Quasi is confident. There are six games played, we are tablets and have everything in their own hands, said Di Salvo. But: It will be interested in the coming months.
Because Israel is pointed out, Poland back only two more counters. And only the group first and the best second from the nine groups qualify directly for the EM 2023 in Romania and Georgia.
DI salvo: certainly still potential
Therefore, on March 25 against Latvia and in the directional duel four days later in Israel to be full there. What true me is the time, said Di Salvo: I hope the boys develop in their clubs.
Otherwise, however, a lot of work is waiting for the new U21 generation, we can still work on a lot of focus, said the coach, it s certainly potential there.
According to Di Salvo, the tension in the group is good for development, because you should allow any errors. Auerbach looks similar. It s always better, said the 20-year-old left-back, if you have a challenge.
