National team: Jonathan Burkardt does not respond

Arminia Bielefeld - 1. FSV Mainz 05 1-2 | Highlights | Matchday 10 – Bundesliga 2021/22
U21 captain Jonathan Burkardt can understand his non-consideration for the first squad of the German football national team in the World Cup year. “With my services in the second half, I just did not deserve that, be invited,” said the 21-year-old professional from FSV Mainz 05 the “Image” newspaper. “No goal was not shot until Saturday, that was not my claim,” supplemented Burkardt, who had scored his first two hits in 2022 against Arminia Bielefeld (4: 0). Overall, the striker now comes to nine goals in 26 games. National coach Hansi Flick had already emphasized that he had Burkardt on the note and watching him on the spot. At the international matches on Saturday (20:45 clock) in Sinsheim against Israel and three days there in the Netherlands he sets in the attack but on established forces. Burkardt plays with the U21 in the EM qualification on Friday in Aachen against Latvia and on Tuesday in Israel.
