Germany could make it four wins out of four since Hansi Flick took over as coach when they welcome Romania to the Volksparkstadion in Hamburg in a World Cup qualifier tonight.

Speaking ahead of the game at a press conference on Thursday, Flick confirmed that Antonio Rüdiger and Niklas Süle will definitely start in central defense, but it's unclear who will start in the full-back positions.

"There are few players that are regular starters," said Flick.

"Antonio Rüdiger and Niklas Süle will both start as they are currently working well together. We will see who features at right and left back," added the Germany coach.

Besides Süle and Rüdiger, Joshua Kimmich, Leon Goretzka, Serge Gnabry, Florian Wirtz and Timo Werner were among the players in the 'A team' during the final training yesterday, according to Sport1.
