Kevin Volland not expecting an World Cup appearance for Germany


Kevin Volland has revealed he is not expecting an World Cup appearance for Germany despite amassing 10 Germany caps ahead of the showpiece.

“I do not have the biggest hopes right now. It will not be easy considering the amount of competition,” Volland told Bild.

“But it would be huge to me. Everyone dreams of going to a World Cup. It will be crucial that we continue to perform well as a team.

“Of course it sounds good [to be the highest scoring German in the Bundesliga], I would be lying if I said otherwise.

“However, I am staying relaxed. I just enjoy it with this team and I can totally identify with our football.”
