1899 Hoffenheim scored 20 goals past lower league opposition SC Reilingen in a friendly on Tuesday.
Now that’s probably not better than what Australia did a few years ago but it does have a lesson in it somewhere?
Pick your preseason opponents really carefully to boost your team’s confidence (Arsenal)?
Rotate for maximum effect (Liverpool)?
Have a rich owner (Chelsea)?
Probably all 3. All they need to do now is to actually win something – no pressure, eh? Somehow I don’t think Klinsmann is going to get worried just yet.
