Jogi Löw and the German national team have released the roster for the upcoming international break. Unsparingly, seven Bayern Munich players got the call, including Jamal Musiala’s first call up for Germany since committing to Germany over England.

Bayern and Germany’s captain, Manuel Neuer, was selected among the goalies as was Niklas Süle in defense. The rest of Bayern’s players called up were in the midfield and the attack. Serge Gnabry, Leon Groretzka, Joshua Kimmich, Jamal Muisala, and Leroy Sane.

Leading up to Löw’s announcement that he will be stepping down after Euro 2020 this summer, there has been speculation that Thomas Müller, Jerome Boateng, or Mats Hummels could get called back into the national team squad. However, none of these three were called in for this round of World Cup Qualifiers ahead of Euro 2020.

Germany is slated to play Iceland in Germany on 3/25, away to Romania on 3/28, and North Macedonia on 3/31 back in Germany to kick off their World Cup qualifying campaign. Although they need to stay focused, Germany are heavy favorites to win the group, with Liechtenstein and Armenia rounding out the group.
