Jupp Heynckes has selection dilemma at Hamburg

Jupp Heynckes doesn’t agree that he could have done without as many changes as he made for the recent league game away at Hamburg.

Five players who had featured in the previous European Cup match were left on the bench on the Hamburg trip and some new players were tried and while the result still turned out to be positive in the form of a 1-0 victory, it was not a dominating outing for Bayern by any stretch of imagination especially considering that the opposition had gone one man down in the first half itself.

England reached 38 undefeated European Qualifiers with an injured squad

England secured their 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification on October 5 after overcoming Slovenia with a final scoreboard of 1-0 with the only goal of the entire match being scored by Harry Kane at the 94th minute.


This victory was particularly important for the England national football team not only because it allows the team of Gareth Southgate to actually qualify for the upcoming worldwide competition but also because it was the 38thsuccessive undefeated qualifying match in the FIFA World Cup and in the European Championship.

This consecutive streak of unbeaten qualifying matches of England dated way back during the 2010 FIFA World Cup when England defeated Belarus 3-0 and from there on out they have managed to not sustain any defeats in their upcoming qualifying matches for any FIFA World Cup or European Championship which extended to 38 games in their recent victory over Slovenia.

It’s a very impressive accomplishment for England and to make it even more impressive, Gareth Southgate has recently talked about the condition of his squad as the English manager said that many of his own players have been performing in qualifying matches without actually deserving on earning their place in the first team but due to the amount of injuries, Southgate has no other option but to put those performers who aren’t as deserving as others.
