The German press agency found out on Friday shortly before an announced statement from Neuendorf at the airport in Doha. It was still unclear in which constellation and on which day the consultations would take place. Watzke is also the head of the supervisory board of the German Football League.
Meanwhile, the DFB entourage left the World Cup base in Al-Ruwais in the very north of Qatar. With the team bus, support vehicles and police escort, it started at the international airport in the capital. The charter flight LH343 is scheduled to take off there at 2.30 p.m. local time (12.30 p.m. German time) towards Frankfurt. The day before, the DFB selection had missed out on the round of 16 of the World Cup despite beating Costa Rica 4-2 in the last group game.
