Hansi Flick: "Marc (ter Stegen) will replace Neuer in goal. We called Oliver Baumann up, but Bernd Leno is also still an option for us. It was important for him to get playing time after his move to Fulham. Trapp is doing very well. I'm happy with the options we have in goal" 🇩🇪

Flick on Covid: "Such cases are always annoying, but it's also become a normal situation. With a normal flu you also miss out, Covid is a bit more aggressive. Of course you have to reduce your contacts a bit before the World Cup and think about whether you're going there or not"

Flick: "The next two games will be extremely important. We have to be brave against Hungary. They're very compact, coach Marco Rossi is doing a very good job there. Our goal is to finish as group winners after these two games and to qualify for the final four"

Flick on who will wear the captain's armband tomorrow: "When Manu isn't there, the one who has the most caps usually wears the armband"

Flick on Bella-Kotchap: "He has made a great impression here, the time in England has been good for him. He's someone who loves to fight defensively. He is strong in tackles, strong in the air and physically on an outstanding level. We haven't planned him for the starting XI yet"

Flick on the striker problem: "The intensity was very high for everyone who trained today. Everyone wanted to score goals, that's what you need. I don't want to talk about individuals. We have enough players who are able to score goals. Let's wait and see who will play upfront"

Flick on Bayern players: "They have a very high level of self-motivation to get out of this situation. That's how I see them here too. They want to perform for Germany, but they will also be motivated to get back on the right track with FC Bayern. They have the quality for that"

Flick on Musiala: "Jamal is always a very good option. He did very well in training, his injury wasn't noticeable anymore. He's fully fit and available. He will be able to help us tomorrow."

Mats Hummels still an option? Flick: "We're watching Borussia Dortmund very closely. I'm curious to see how things will develop with three potential centre-backs for us there"
