Laura Benkarth, Giulia Gwinn, Kathrin Hendrich, Linda Dallmann, Melanie Leupolz, and Lina Magull have received the call up for head coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg. The six players look to be regulars under Voss-Tecklenburg and will play a big part in Germany’s likely Euro 2021 campaign in England.
Almuth Schult, Svenja Huth, Sara Doorsoun, Carolin Simon, and Marina Hegering are all missing out due to injury.
Two Bayern players, Carina Schluter and Verena Schweers, have been named to the “Standby” list for the upcoming games. Schweers has been a regular for Germany for the last couple of years; however, Voss-Tecklenburg stated that this move is a chance to see what other players have to bring to the table as Germany continues to prep for Euro 2021.
Germany will play Ukraine on October 5 in Aachen and Greece on October 8 in Thessaloniki.
