Nagelsmann Unveils Germany’s Exciting Euro 2024 Squad Selections

Germany, the hosts, are aiming to clinch their first victory since the 2014 World Cup under the leadership of Julian Nagelsmann, who is overseeing his inaugural major tournament. Nagelsmann has unveiled a provisional squad of 27 players for Euro 2024. The noteworthy addition to the roster is Alexander Nubel, the Stuttgart goalkeeper, who earns his first senior call-up as the fourth goalkeeper. Notable absentees include Mats Hummels, who played a vital role in Borussia Dortmund’s journey to the Champions League final, and Leon Goretzka of Bayern Munich. Other players missing out on the tournament are Julian Brandt, Niklas Sule, Karim Adeyemi, Serge Gnabry, and Timo Werner, who are sidelined due to injuries. Nagelsmann experienced a slow start, winning only one of his first four matches in charge, but turned the tide in March and secured consecutive victories. Defender Nico Schlotterbeck, boasting a 71% tackle success rate in the Bundesliga, is back in the national squad after an absence since September. Aleksandar Pavlovic was sidelined in the previous friendlies due to injury but has been included in the squad, with Bayern boasting an impressive 83.3% win rate with him in their lineup this season. The final 26-player squad must be finalized by June 7, requiring at least one player to be dropped before the tournament commences. As the hosts, Germany will kick off their Euro 2024 campaign against Scotland on June 14. The squad comprises a mix of seasoned veterans and promising youngsters across different positions, highlighting the depth and talent of German football.
