After the 1-0 victory at VfB Stuttgart on Matchday 25, the majority of the Wolves squad departed for their national teams – including Felix Nmecha. Having previously represented Germany’s U21s, the 22-year-old brother of VfL striker Lukas Nmecha was not only called up to the senior squad for the first time but was also handed his international debut by Hansi Flick in the recent 3-2 defeat by Belgium. In this interview, the Wolves’ number 22 reflects on that very special moment and looks ahead to the upcoming home game against FC Augsburg.
Felix Nmecha, congratulations first of all on making your senior Germany debut. How was your time with the national side?
Felix Nmecha: “It was very nice. I also enjoyed training at such a high intensity and capping it off by making an appearance. Everyone was very kind and made it very easy for me.”
You were on the pitch for almost an hour in the 3-2 defeat against Belgium. How pleased were you with your performance?
Felix: “I think I performed well. I had good moments with the ball and in pressing situations. I think I’m capable of doing even better once I’ve grown accustomed to this high intensity, but for my first game I’m satisfied.”
