These words will Borussia Dortmund-Players Mats Hummels and Julian Brandt will certainly like to hear it.
About two months until the start of the World Cup in Qatar! And also some actors from Borussia Dortmund hope of course for a nomination for the World Cup.
Mats Hummels not called up for internationals
With Niklas Süle and Nico Schlotterbeck, two BVB central defenders are in the squad of the German national team for the Nations League games against Hungary (September 23) and England (September 26). Mats Hummels, on the other hand, will probably not play a role in Hansi Flick’s plans for the time being. But with regard to the World Cup there is hope – also for fellow player Julian Brandt.
On the one hand, after the Champions League defeat (1: 2) of Dortmund against Manchester City, there was great praise from Flick to Hummels (we reported). On the other hand, the DFB coach confirmed to the “Süddeutsche Zeitung” that he would make use of the opportunity to nominate a 26 instead of a 23 squad for the World Cup – words that Hummels would certainly like to hear.
Brandt can prove himself again in the national team
And Brandt should also welcome this decision. Despite recent regular calls to the national team, he only made three brief appearances in the first year as Jogi Löw’s successor. The World Cup ticket is not yet secure for the 38-time national player.
But unlike Hummels, Brandt gets the opportunity to show himself in the two Nations League duels and the training sessions of the national team.

“I’ve made it my goal to give my best picture and work out playing time,” Brandt is quoted as saying by “kicker”. “When you’re about to have an important tournament, you should grab the chance.”
It remains to be seen which BVB players will ultimately be allowed to travel to Qatar.
