Black and Yellow Guys on the Road - International Matches
After only four Bundesliga matchdays and four wins, it is time for international matches. Seventeen (!) players from Dortmund - a number that has probably not been reached for years - will participate in international friendly or World Cup qualifier matches. Ultimately this circumstance means that there is simply not much time to refine our defensive tactics, with Roman Weidenfeller, Zlatan Alomerovic, Oliver Kirch, Sebastian Kehl, Kevin Großkreutz and Julian Schieber, there are only six players left that are going to work out in Dortmund. Here is a brief overview which of our players are facing matches with their national sides, and who they will compete with.
