When will the squad of the German national team be announced?

The World Cup in Qatar is getting closer – and so is the decision by national coach Hansi Flick about the final tournament squad. But when is it actually time? All information is available here.

The World Cup in Qatar will be held from November 20th to December 18th. Like four years ago, a total of 32 nations will take part in the tournament. One difference to the last edition, however, is the squad size. While this was 23 players in 2018, the coaches now have the opportunity to nominate a total of 26 players.

DFB coach Hansi Flick was completely satisfied with the change. “FIFA’s decision (…) is correct. I more than agree with that,” said the 57-year-old at a press conference during the Nations League games.

The expansion is mainly due to the high failure rate due to the corona virus. The Bayern stars Manuel Neuer and Leon Goretzka were recently infected, which is why they were not available for the games against Hungary and England.

World Cup 2022: When will the squad of the German national team be announced?

Unlike in previous years, the World Cup squad will be announced much earlier this time. The background is a pre-registration of the players for visa and doping controls. In order to compensate for any absences that may occur, the provisional squad size includes up to 50 places. Shortly before the start of the tournament (probably after the last Bundesliga matchday from November 11th to 13th), the final list of nominations will be published.

It is currently unclear by when the 50-man squad will have to be in place. According to consistent media reports, this should be the case at the end of October.
