All of Germany is in mug fever!

Most fans would even like to see our Spain hero Niclas Füllkrug (29) in the starting XI in the group final against Costa Rica today. In a voting by BILD.de, 81 percent of the more than 10,000 participants nominated Bremen.

The jug hype is also reflected in jersey sales – everyone now wants the 9 with a jug!

According to the online retailer “Fanatics”, the Füllkrug jersey was the best-selling DFB jersey in November. Fanatics also operates the official online shop of the DFB.

Online sales were particularly popular in the hour after his cracking goal to make it 1-1 against Spain in the 83rd minute: Füllkrug’s number 9 jersey sold 90 percent more than the jerseys of all the other DFB stars combined!

Does Müller know more than we do? Our lineup will be a surprise

Füllkrug himself hopes that there will finally be a real World Cup feeling in Germany: “I hope that we can create a World Cup atmosphere, I used to love that from afar, even as a child!”

The jersey hype is at least a good start.

However: Anyone who wants to order a filling jug jersey for the next game or at least for the round of 16 could be disappointed at the official DFB shop: BILD tested the shop before the German World Cup started and ordered a filling jug jersey on November 19th . On the day of the third group game, it still hadn’t arrived.

Unfortunately, the DFB online shop is not quite as dynamic as the filling jug on the pitch…
