Euro 2020 Germany Squad: The Germany Euro 2020 squad for this summer has been revealed, with boss Joachim Löw opting to recall 2014 World Cup winners Mats Hummels and Thomas Muller, two years after informing the pair that their time with the national team was over.
The squad has an unsurprising reliance on Bayern Munich players – eight members ply their trade for the Bundesliga champions, including 17-year-old Jamal Musiala, a breakout star in the German league this season.
Germany in Group F: Germany will stiff competition in Group F- which has also been termed as the ‘group of death. With the likes of 2018 FIFA World Cup winner, France and Euro 2016 champions Portugal, Joachim Low and his men will have a strong task cut out for themselves.

Germany Squad for UEFA Euro 2020, 3 Key players to watch out for:
One of the few veterans of 2014 left in a youthful squad, Kroos is an exceptional passer who dictates the pace of Germany’s transitions.
Blessed with superb vision and calm under pressure, Havertz’s tendency to float between lines makes him a perfect fit for Löw’s side.
You can make a case that Manuel Neuer’s form really holds the key for this Germany team, but if there’s one player who gives his side the best chance of doing well when he’s on song, it’s Kimmich. The 26-year-old Bayern man has become one of the most complete players in the game, whether in midfield or at right-back.

Germany, Euro 2020 – Predictions
Germany have won the European Championships on three occasions: 1972, 1980 and, of course, at Wembley in 1996.
They’ve reached the semi-finals on a further three occasions, including the last two tournaments, and were runners-up in 1976.
They have also failed to get out of the group stage three times, in 1984, 2000, and 2004 – a very real possibility this time around, with France and Portugal to get past in Group F
