The Big News
The elephant in the room is the return of Mats Hummels and Thomas Muller to the German team after the shambolic 2018 World Cup campaign. Jerome Boateng is not given a second chance after improving since the tournament held in Russia. Muller made his international debut in 2010. Since then he has accrued 100 caps for Germany. He has also scored 38 goals for the 3-times Euro champions. He scored 11 goals and assisted a further 21 for Bayern Munich this season. Hummels has played 70 games for Germany and has scored 5 times for them. Both men were a big part of Low’s World Cup-winning squad in 2014.
Jamal Musiala gets called up to a senior tournament. Just months ago, he was with the U21 setup. What a breakout season he has had!!
No Phillipp Max as Robin Gosens takes his place. Volland’s impressive form for Monaco sees him make the cut. There is no space for Wolfsburg’s Ridle Baku with Christian Günter taking his place. Marc Andre Ter-Stegen underwent surgery and will be out of the tournament. Marco Reus ruled himself out, opting to give his fragile body the rest it needs.
Germany has been drawn in Group F alongside world champions France, current Euro holders Portugal, and play-off winners Hungary. That is a tough group to escape. Die Mannschaft will play all three of their group fixtures at Munich’s Allianz Arena – one of 11 continental venues for the delayed finals.
