Flick coy on starting eleven to face Costa Rica

Hansi Flick was coy on Germany’s starting line-up to face Costa Rica at today’s press conference.

Germany coach Hansi Flick didn’t give much away when asked about his starting line-up for tomorrow’s World Cup crunch clash with Costa Rica.
Asked if Niclas Füllkrug will start after he came on from the bench to score against Spain last time out, Flick briefly responded:

“Nice try. We’ll see about that tomorrow.”

Flick went on to confirm that Leroy Sané is fit enough to play from the start again after recovering from a knee injury, but didn’t guarantee a starting place for the Bayern winger.

“When I left camp, everyone was fit,” said Flick.

“He (Sané) is an option for this game – as are many others.”

Sitting alongside Flick at the press conference, Lukas Klostermann is likely to come in at right-back.

“He has worked very hard to make sure he can be here at the World Cup,” said Flick.

“He did very well in the game against Spain. He’s a good option.”
