Per a report from kicker, Bayern Munich’s Thomas Müller and Borussia Dortmund’s Mats Hummels will be included in Joachim Löw’s roster for the European Championships. If true, this is huge news with regard to the squad’s composition for the summer tournament.
There as been a buzz building around speculation that Müller, Hummels, and Bayern Munich’s Jerome Boateng might earn a call-back to international play, but as of now, only Müller and Hummels were listed in kicker’s report:
According to well-informed sources, Thomas Müller and Mats Hummels will be accepted into the EM delegation. After winning the World Cup and the Confederation Cup, Löw’s European title should round off his DFB career.
The move to re-add any or all of the veterans would represent a turnaround for Löw, who unceremoniously axed the trio back in 2019. With every inconsistent performance for Die Mannschaft, however, the pressure has built on Löw to reconsider the status of each player.
With his youth movement stalled and results being spotty at best, it looks as if Löw is going to try and put together the roster of his most in-form German players heading into the European Championships.
Will the veterans be enough to help Germany climb into contention?
We might just find out after all.
