One day after the last preparatory course in Frankfurt, in which Austria’s senior squad was beaten 3-0 and a 1-1 and 3-1 win against the senior US team, is from the national coach Johannes Schmitz, in coordination with head junior coach Valentin Altenburg, the 20-man squad for the Junior World Championships from November 24th to December 5th in Bhubaneswar, India has been nominated.

“This is a totally homogeneous team that has known each other extremely well through the interaction in the various selection teams over the past few years and draws its strength from the harmony in the team structure, which is always interesting to see,” says Jo Schmitz. The experienced Hannes Müller and Benedikt Schwarzhaupt will act as captains of the team. Like five others in the team, you already have senior national team experience, “which can be particularly noticeable in a tournament like this,” said the national coach.

UHC Michel Struthoff, who was only 18 years old, was the youngest to make it into the World Cup squad. Most of the team was born in 200 and 2001 Task”. If one of the 18 squad gets injured in the tournament or fails for other reasons, they take his place.

In addition to the regular junior team manager Tobias Feuerhake, Eric Langner, team manager of the German A-squad, will also fly to India, who will, among other things, take on the role of hygiene officer. Langner knows the infrastructure in Bhubaneswar very well from the 2018 Men’s World Cup. A schedule for the tournament, to which the team is expected to depart on November 18, has not yet been published by the world association, so it is not yet clear who the Germans’ opponents in the preliminary round will be.
