Nagelsmann Remains Elusive Regarding Final Selection for Germany’s Euro 2024 Squad

Julian Nagelsmann remains tight-lipped on his final squad decisions for Euro 2024, opting to wait until after their concluding friendly match on Friday.

Before launching into their anticipated campaign on home soil, Germany tests their mettle against Greece. Their tournament opener against Scotland is set for June 14.

Initially, Nagelsmann picked 27 players but must whittle this number down to 26 by Friday, solidifying his team for the competition.

Nagelsmann, the ex-Bayern Munich chief, hinted that the upcoming match could sway his choices, although he steered clear of naming any potential cuts.

“Our first team is pretty much decided, yet the upcoming performances in the game and training sessions need to align,” Nagelsmith expressed at Thursday’s press briefing.

“We’ve essentially locked down our picks, though I’ll keep them under wraps. Discussing possible exits now would be imprudent, especially if injury forces a last-minute change,” he continued.

“Everything will be out in the open after tomorrow’s game,” he added.

“Consistency will secure spots. Kai [Havertz] knows performance will tip the scales. [Niclas Fullkrug] also stands a chance to impress and shake things up,” stated Nagelsmann.

“Certainty comes from proving oneself on the field,” he concluded.

Leroy Sane, one of those from Bayern in the provisional squad, recently overcame a bone injury. Despite missing Germany’s tie with Ukraine Monday, he appears set to participate soon.

Nagelsmann appeared optimistic about Sane’s condition, mentionin that while Sane’s full match stamina isn’t assured, his training progress has been promising.
