So bitter kann eine WM-Premiere verlaufen: Der neu ins Team gerückte Sebastian Rudy begann gegen Schweden stark. Doch nach einem Tritt ins Gesicht war. Sebastian Rudy (), Spieler: Spiele, gewonnen, 95 unentschieden, verloren. Vereinshistorie und Leistungsdaten in deutschen National-. Sebastian Rudy ist ein jähriger Fußballspieler aus Deutschland, (* in Rudy spielt seit bei FC Schalke 04 (S04). Aktueller Marktwert.
Several Bundesliga stars got an opportunity at the Confederations Cup, but Lars Stindl was the one who made the most of it.
The Gladbach attacker received his first cap in June, and now Löw is choosing him over some more established players.
With the depth Löw has in attacking midfield, Stindl may not make the World Cup squad, but he has made a strong case for his inclusion.
As the Dortmund forward has struggled with his form, several others have passed him on Germany's depth chart. He got two goals and an assist against Azerbaijan in March, but he looks unlikely to win another cap anytime soon.
Germany has a plethora of central midfielders yet Leon Goretzka has still found a way to break into the squad. The Schalke midfielder was arguably Germany's best player at the Confederations Cup, scoring three goals in four starts.
His spot may not be completely secure if Ilkay Gündogan and Julian Weigl return strongly from injury, but he has certainly made the decision tougher for Löw.
After a strong performance at last year's Olympics and a solid season with Leverkusen, Julian Brandt seemed poised for an extended run in Germany's first team.
But it wasn't to be. He made just one start at the Confederations Cup and played poorly in the World Cup qualifier against Czech Republic last month.
Considering Germany's depth, he may need to wait a little longer for his World Cup debut. The back-up goalkeeper spot is no longer up for grabs.
He was named as starter after just two matches at the Confed Cup, a tournament where Löw was supposedly going to try out several players.
In truth ter Stegen has made the number two spot his own. With Neuer injured, was the year these two were to solidify their standing with Germany. Neither of them have.
Bernd Leno right made two big errors in his only Confed Cup start. Kevin Trapp left got his first cap in June, but a lack of first team football at Paris Saint-Germain may be his downfall.
The pair's issues mean the third goalkeeper spot in the World Cup squad up for grabs. He has played in seven of Germany's 10 matches in and although he may not be in the country's top tier of central defenders, he appears to be in the mix if injury strikes.
A year ago, the two seemed to be Germany's defensive future - Jonathan Tah made the Euro squad while Niklas Süle left played at the Olympics.
But neither has made a big enough recent impact to warrant a spot in the World Cup squad. Tah has had injury problems but even Matthias Ginter, who was not good enough for Dortmund, seems to be ahead of the youngsters.
He has scored five goals in World Cup qualifying, so it may seem harsh to call him a loser. But Müller hasn't moved past his Euro woes, so he's not a winner either.
His recent decline with Bayern Munich doesn't seem to have carried over too much in the national team, but he's still not the Müller Germany fans know.
Hopefully he becomes a winner in , or Germany may not be winning anything. Sebastian Rudy's early strike was crucial for Germany, but his contributions did not stop there.
Sandro Wagner also impressed while leading the line and Joshua Kimmich was a menace once again. Germany made it nine wins from nine in qualifying and booked their place at World Cup with a comfortable win over Northern Ireland on Thursday.
Germany have maintained their perfect World Cup qualifying record and look like the best team in the world. After not dropping a single point in their first nine matches, Germany have cruised to another World Cup qualification.
Who has made themselves indispensable and who has struggled? Here are DW's winners and losers. Both Löw and Boateng cited the experienced defender's fitness levels as the reason for the omission.
The German national team has had a lot to reckon with this year: Nearly four months after their embarrassing elimination from the World Cup, Germany could be on the brink of another football humiliation.

Change it here DW. Hoffenheim came from behind to inflict a first home defeat of the season on newly-promoted Nuremberg. Captain Hanno Behrens gave the "Club" the lead from the spot in an even first half but a quick-fire brace from English teenager Reiss Nelson number 9, pictured turned the game in the visitors' favor.
Adam Szalai made it three for Julian Nagelsmann's side who moved up to eighth. Bayer Leverkusen left it late to come from behind for the second time in the match and rescue a point at home to struggling Hannover.
Lars Bender cancelled out Florent Muslija's opener before the break but Felipe Martins restored the visitors' lead in the second half.
The home fans had to wait until the 94th minute for Karim Bellerabi's equalizer but there were still boos at full-time. In a match characterized by fouls and regular interruptions, both Augsburg and RB Leipzig settled for a point.
The visitors thought they should have had a penalty when Jeffrey Gouweleeuw brought down Timo Werner in the box but the video assistant referee decided - four minutes later - that it wasn't a foul.
RB captain Willi Orban came close in stoppage time but the match ended goalless. Luka Jovic was the star of the show for Eintracht Frankfurt, who ruthlessly disposed of Fortuna Düsseldorf to move above Bayern into sixth in the Bundesliga.
But this game was all about Luka Jovic, who scored five goals in a devastating attacking display. Jovic becomes the Bundesliga's top scorer with a total of seven, and the first Frankfurt player to ever score five goals in a Bundesliga game.
Domenico Tedesco's season has been endured rather than enjoyed so far, but in Europe there have been bright moments. His Schalke side came agonisingly close to providing another one in Turkey.
For the second time in three years, Schalke have started a season with five straight defeats. The crisis talk after Matchday 2 was premature but it's not anymore.
Schalke have issues to address, writes DW's Matt Ford. DW's Matt Ford explains why it's a good move for all parties.
Sebastian Rudy's brilliant strike helped Germany qualify for the World Cup and furthered a growing reputation.
He has slowly risen up the ranks to the point where he is one of Joachim Löw's top options in midfield. Last season Bayer Leverkusen and Schalke profited from a lack of European football.
With that pair struggling and Gladbach and Werder Bremen focused and flying, are European campaigns hindering some German clubs?
Werder Bremen also impressed while RB Leipzig were frustrated. It hasn't been an easy season for Domenico Tedesco at Schalke, but in their latest European game both he and his team showed that things are improving.
The result leaves Schalke close to the knockout rounds. On the face of it, a point away at RasenBallsport Leipzig isn't a bad result, but Schalke's goalless draw provided precious few answers to the questions surrounding the team.
And there are many of them. Borussia Dortmund have extended their lead over Bayern Munich to four points ahead of next weekend's "Klassiker.

Sports Was Sebastian Rudy a bad buy for Schalke? Poor form Schalke's problems go beyond their new signing's lack of spark.
Predictably, Rudy was on the bench for the Bremen game and the Royal Blues went on to lose. From Germany outsider to midfield staple German national team: To make matters worse, Rudy didn't even leave the bench for Germany in either game.
Things now look very different It is hard to say whether Rudy could come off the bench and if he did, whether he can turn his fate around.
