SC Freiburg: Which players are going to the World Cup?
Which players are in the World Cup? SC Freiburg has five national players who travel to Qatar with their national teams.
SC Freiburg has had a strong season so far and ended the World Cup break in second place. Unsurprisingly, one or the other SC professional was happy about the nomination for the World Cup in Qatar. We take a quick look at the World Cup drivers from Breisgau.
Which Freiburg players are at the World Cup?
Christian Gunter (Germany)
At the sports club, the 29-year-old is the big hit. In the previous 23 games of the season, the captain was always in the starting line-up. The six-time national player, who did not play a minute at the 2020 European Championship, is fighting for a place on the left side of defense with David Raum.
Matthias Ginter (Germany)
After eight years, the world champion returned to Freiburg last summer. At the old place of work, the ex-BVB professional was able to recommend himself for a World Cup ticket with convincing performances. While Ginter is set in central defense at the Sport-Club, he will probably only play the role of backup at the World Cup in Qatar.
Ritsu Doan (Japan)
At the beginning of July, the Breisgau team transferred an impressive 8.5 million euros to PSV Eindhoven to secure Doan’s services. After 22 competitive appearances, the 24-year-old has contributed to eight goals (four goals/four assists). In the Japanese national team, the attacker should have a place on the right flank.
Woo Yeong Jeong (South Korea)
Jeong is one of two Bundesliga professionals who made it into South Korea’s World Cup squad. The 23-year-old has mostly played as a substitute at Sport-Club in recent months and has only started a few times. The ex-Bayern professional has played a similar role with the national team. Whether it will be enough for the attacker at the World Cup for a place in the starting line-up remains to be seen.
Daniel-Kofi Kyereh (Ghana)
The newcomer from FC St Pauli (Transfer fee: 4.5 million euros) has proven to be a good reinforcement so far and has fought for a regular place after a short start-up period. The 26-year-old, who missed the last few games due to illness, has three goals and one assist in 16 competitive games. In Qatar, Kyereh will probably have to be content with the joker role.
