Joachim Low has named the latest Germany squad ahead of their UEFA Nations League matches against Spain and Switzerland, and snubbed a few 2019/20 UEFA Champions League winners.
Check out the gallery above to see some stars that Low left out of his latest Germany squad.
Atalanta star Robin Gosens was rewarded for an excellent season and will join up with some of Germany’s exciting younger stars such as Kai Havertz and Leroy Sane for the nation’s next matches.
Gosens is also not the only new face, though, with Borussia Monchengladbach’s Florian Neuhaus and Hoffenheim goalkeeper Oliver Baumann also getting the nod.
Bayern Munich may have charged to the UEFA Champions League title recently, but Low left out all of their star players for the fixtures.
Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, Serge Gnabry and Joshua Kimmich, who provided the assist for the solitary goal in the final, were all excluded.
“With one eye on the European Championships next summer, I think it’s important that the players can chill out and recover properly, both physically and mentally, before starting the new season with their clubs,” Low was quoted as saying, according to the German Football Association’s official website.
The full Germany squad:
Goalkeepers: Kevin Trapp, Bernd Leno, Oliver Baumann
Defence: Thilo Kehrer, Robin Gosens, Matthias Ginter, Jonathan Tah, Nico Schulz, Niklas Sule, Antonio Rudiger, Robin Koch
Midfield & attack: Florian Neuhaus, Julian Draxler, Toni Kroos, Timo Werner, Julian Brandt, Emre Can, Luca Waldschmidt, Kai Havertz, Leroy Sane, Suat Serdar, Ilkay Gundogan
