Germany’s disappointment at the FIFA 2018 World Cup forced a change within the national team, with Joachim Low eventually opting to step away from the top job last year.

Hansi Flick has reinjected optimism into his squad ahead of the 2022 edition in Qatar, with Germany’s World Cup record putting them on a strong footing.

Despite dropping out at the group stages in Russia four years ago, Germany have been one of the most consistent national sides in World Cup history, with a win in 2014 alongside two semifinals and a runners up spot since 2002.

With a balanced squad, including an experienced core, and some of Europe’s most exciting young players, Flick will be confident of repairing the damage of 2018.

Projected Germany World Cup squad 2022

Flick will have until Friday, October 21 to submit an official preliminary list of 35-55 players to FIFA, from which he will select a final 26-man roster for Qatar by Monday, November 14.

Based on World Cup qualifying squads and friendly rosters over the past year, these are the names most likely to be on his preliminary list.
