The international break is now over and the German national team did finally show some signs of life during its tour of the United States.
After a win over the USMNT and a hard-fought draw with Mexico, Die Mannschaft came away at least showing some life and built up a little momentum under new coach Julian Nagelsmann.
Brighton & Hove Albion star Pascal Groß was happy to be a part of the effort and is reveling in the opportunity to represent his country.
“No, it’s a long way. Being here and representing the German colors is a lifelong dream! I always want to do my best when I get the chance,” Groß told Sport1 journalist Kerry Hau.
At a minimum, Groß put himself into a position for consideration for another call-up, though getting as much field time during the next international break will not be a sure thing. Regardless, the 32-year-old likes his situation and will at least give Nagelsmann another option in the midfield moving forward.
