Shock at Jogi Löw and the German national team. Before the start of the World Cup qualification (20:45 against Iceland) tonight, there was a corona case within the team. This is reported by the German newspaper “Bild”, and the “kicker” confirms the information shortly afterwards.
The player who tested positive for Covid-19 should be Jonas Hofmann (28), according to “Bild”. The man from Gladbach participated in the team training yesterday as normal and is currently symptom-free.
Another player in isolation
Tonight’s game in Duisburg can still take place after consulting the local authorities. DFB spokesman Jens Grittner confirmed this to SID: “It will definitely be played.”
In addition to Hofmann, another player was classified as contact person 1. Means: This also has to go into isolation – and is missing national coach Jogi Löw. (rij)
