The victory for Pogacar was incredible, as he overcame long-term race leader Primoz Roglic, a fellow Slovenian cyclist, in a stunning time trial win in the penultimate stage on Saturday when he erased a 57-second deficit and even established an unshakable 59-second lead entering into Sunday's ceremonial route from Mantes-la-Jolie to Champs-Elysees.
The 37-year-old was among 26 players summoned by head coach Gerardo Martino for the Tricolor's first fixtures of the year, which will be preceded by a five day training camp starting Saturday.
The club is one of the brand leaders regarding teaching and coaching methods, mentality, and football competence, Jobst emphasized. "Our contribution is not only playing friendlies in China, but close collaboration with the association, clubs, and schools."
"The finish was impressive, playing with nine against 11. We showed an incredible mentality. It was a deserved victory after a crazy match. I am very proud," the German coach said.
"I just came back from the training camp of the national team and everything is so familiar to me," said the 20-year-old side hitter, who helped China claim the World Cup title a year ago in Japan. "I will work with my teammates and get well prepared for the upcoming games."
