DOHA, Qatar. Hansi Flick said that German football "will be going in a different direction very soon" after the four-time world champions were eliminated in the World Cup group stage for the second straight season, which striker Thomas Müller described as "an absolute disaster". .
Despite a 4-2 victory over Costa Rica at the Al Bayt Stadium, Japan's 2-1 victory over Spain in Doha ended Germany's hopes of qualifying for Group E.

Japan's 2-1 defeat in their first match in Qatar 2022 ended up costing Germany dearly, hosting Euro 2024 just over 18 months later.

The German national team was eliminated from the group  

And with that tournament approaching, Flick, unconcerned about his own future as a manager, said big changes were being made to ensure Germany's competitiveness at Euro 2024.
“In view of the World Cup, it’s hard to talk about it now, but we have to evaluate our World Cup, go in a different direction,” said Flick. “This is the next step we will take and we will do it very soon.
“We can get up and recover quickly. We will see what the future looks like and how we can realize our ideas. I am a very critical person and we will appreciate everything.”
Part of Germany's "other direction" is likely to be the departure of world champions such as Müller, Manuel Neuer and Mario Götze from the national team.
Müller, who made his debut at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, admitted that it was difficult to exit the tournament early.
“This is a real disaster,” Mueller said. “This is incredibly bittersweet for us because our result would have been enough [if Spain had not lost to Japan]. This feeling of powerlessness.
"If this was my last game for Germany, it was a lot of fun, thanks."
Spain's failure to avoid defeat by Japan was critical for Germany, but Flick said his team had only themselves to blame for the relegation.
"I don't care about different teams, it's up to us," Flick said. “If you look at the games and the number of goals we have, I am convinced that we have missed our chances against Spain and Japan.
“We need to use our chances and score goals. If we did, it would be a different story. There were a lot of individual mistakes in the games, and that made me very angry. I told the team I was upset."
“But I'm not making excuses. Today we fulfilled our duty, we won, but the result could have been better.”
