20 outfield players and two goalkeepers took to the training ground in Dortmund-Brackel on Wednesday morning. Several World Cup returnees and U19 goalkeeper Marian Kirsch took part in the session. Jamie Bynoe-Gittens completed an individual session on the pitch.

The focus of the training session was on various passing forms in combination with switch-play actions. The coaching staff demanded high intensity on and off the ball throughout the session, which lasted around 75 minutes.

On Friday morning the team will travel to Bucharest for the Christmas Cup, which will be played on Saturday.
