Media Day and team picture
On Friday afternoon the Eagles had a pre-season session with a difference: the annual Media Day and official team photograph.
Each year, Eintracht Frankfurt and the Deutsche Fußball-Liga (DFL) hold a Media Day to create the photographs, GIFs, skills videos and other clips that will be used throughout the season. And despite a long day at the office, the mood among the Eagles camp could not have been any better. "We've got some intensive weeks of training behind us and today was a good mix of work and fun," said Evan Ndicka.
The Eintracht players arrived early in the morning and had breakfast together before heading outside for a training session. In the afternoon they posed for the DFL and EintrachtTV cameras, with one of the highlights of the day undoubtedly being the official team photo, including the coaching and backroom staff.
Focus now shifts to the first leg of the UEFA Europa League second round qualifier away to FC Flora Tallinn on Thursday. "It's the first difficult step towards the Europa League and we want to give it our best and come away with the win," said Ndicka.
