Werder Bremen’s opening game at the Interwetten Cup ended in a 1-0 defeat to VfL Osnabrück.

The Green-White squad touched down at Bremen Airport on Sunday afternoon with ten tough days of training in Zillertal behind the Werder team. However, after a “very good” training camp, Florian Kohfeldt is “unsettled”. But the head coach revealed that his worries have positive reasons.
