Jurgen Klinsmann sends out Euro 2020 warning as Germany legend backs wingers Serge Gnabry and Leroy Sane to ‘tear everyone apart’
- Germany rounded off Euro 2020 qualifying with a 6-1 win over Northern Ireland
- Serge Gnabry’s hat-trick means he has 13 goals in 13 caps for Germany
- Leroy Sane is injured but will have recovered from injury in time for Euro 2020
Germany rounded off their qualifying campaign with a 6-1 win over Northern Ireland, where Gnabry scored a hat-trick to take his international tally to 13 goals in 13 appearances.
Sane, meanwhile, is recovering from a cruciate ligament injury but is expected to return in the new year.
Serge Gnabry has been tipped for a big Euro 2020 by Germany legend Jurgen Klinsmann
‘We have Serge Gnabry, who has a gigantic year behind him,’ Klinsmann was quoted as saying by Goal. ‘And with Leroy Sane, two mega-offensive forces that would tear everyone apart.’
Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill described Gnabry, who was once on Arsenal’s books, as ‘unplayable’ after his midweek treble.
Leroy Sane is injured at present but expected to be fully fit by the time Euro 2020 arrives
‘Gnabry’s goal-scoring record is phenomenal,’ said O’Neill. ‘It’s a mystery to me how English clubs didn’t get more out of him.
‘I’d be surprised if this Germany team doesn’t make a big impact (at Euro 2020).’
The Euro 2020 draw is on November 30.
