Germany’s national team Die Mannschaft must win against Sweden if they hope to advance in the World Cup



After a lackluster performance last week against Mexico, Germany’s national team will have to win this Saturday’s game against Sweden if they hope to advance to the next round of the World Cup. We chat with Ralph Guhlke, Berliner Rundfunk sports reporter, about the mood in Germany and what changes Die Mannschaft will have make if they hope to move forward.

Guhlke gives us the rundown of what is brewing before the weekend’s big match, including fan reactions and what the German team has promised to do in their game against Sweden. Guhlke makes one thing clear: “Of course they can beat Sweden, but it has to be a lot better than this thing against Mexico.”
