Lahm worried about Germany’s home Euros after World Cup debacle.
Former Germany captain Philipp Lahm is worried about the current team’s ability to compete in their home Euros in 2024 after the early exit from the World Cup in Qatar.
“The team looks like it doesn’t have a leadership. Now we have to find the right people, in view of the Euros at home starting in 18 months, and for which the (World Cup) result is of course a disaster,” he wrote in a column for media group RedaktionsNetzwerk Deutschland.

Lahm particularly criticized the team’s defensive work during the tournament in Qatar.
“You always had the feeling that we could overrun the opponent and create chances, but we lacked defensive structure and stability. It was a nightmare for (keeper) Manuel Neuer at times, considering how often players appeared free in front of him,” the former Bayern defender wrote.
He believes, however, that there’s potential for a turnaround.
“We have many good players, great talents like (Jamal) Musiala, (Leroy) Sane, (Serge) Gnabry, (Kai) Havertz. But they have to take up responsibility,” Lahm said.
