Julian Nagelsmann led the first training session as national coach with all 25 available players in his squad.

The 36-year-old repeatedly loudly gave instructions on the practice field of New England Revolution from Major League Soccer in Foxborough and actively intervened in the national soccer team’s playing style. Nagelsmann had the play structure from the defense practiced in a 4-2-2-2 system.

In mild temperatures, assistant coach Sandro Wagner was also closely involved in the proceedings on the site, which is located in a wooded area. DFB returnee Mats Hummels was able to train without any noticeable problems after being substituted in Borussia Dortmund’s Bundesliga game against Union Berlin last Sunday.

Havertz is expected on Wednesday

Nagelsmann had already reported that the 34-year-old was fit for action. Kai Havertz is expected from London on Wednesday after a dental operation. Nagelsmann then has his squad complete with 22 field players and four goalkeepers.

Nagelsmann is starting his coaching project in America, which should lead to a successful home European Championship next summer. In September he was appointed Hansi Flick’s successor. The DFB team in the US state of Massachusetts will be preparing for the first two test games under Nagelsmann until Friday. On Saturday, the USA team is the first opponent in Hartford (9 p.m./RTL). Mexico is the second opponent in Philadelphia on October 18th (2:00 a.m./ARD).
