Head coach of Germany, Julian Nagelsmann announced a 26-player squad list for the UEFA European Championship 2024 on 7th June 2024. Germany is placed in Group A with Hungary, Switzerland and Scotland. The 17th edition of the competition is being hosted by Germany, only the second time for the nation since 1988. Having suffered elimination from the last-16 stage in the previous tournament, Die Mannschaft are willing to do better on their home soil making a record-extending 13th appearance in the finals. Germany is going through a rough patch after exiting from the group stage in consecutive World Cups since their big success in 2014.

History

Germany are the three-time winner of the competition with all of their success coming before this century. Die Mannschaft won the Euros in their debut season in 1972 defeating the Soviet Union 3-0 in the final under the captaincy of Franz Beckenbauer with Gerd Müller winning the Golden Boot. After finishing runners-up in the next edition, Germany appeared for an unprecedented third consecutive final in 1980 beating Belgium in the final with Klaus Allofs returning as the top scorer. The third honour came in 1996 with the side captained by Jürgen Klinsmann, also the top-scorer for his nation in the competition with five goals. Bastian Schweinsteiger holds the record of playing the most matches for the side in the tournament with 18.

Preparation for Euro 2024

Germany qualified for Euro 2024 by being the hosts. As a reason, the team was engaged in a lot of friendlies over two years following their group stage exit in the World Cup. After a disastrous period under Hansi Flick with only one win in six matches, Julian Nagelsmann took charge of the team although he had a slow start. Germany picked up pace since the turn of the year with three wins and a draw. Nagelsmann hopes the momentum comes to their rescue and pulls them out of the crisis sustained for close to a decade now.

Germany Euro 2024 Squad

Goalkeepers:

Manuel Neuer (Bayern Munich), Oliver Baumann (Hoffenheim), Alexander Nubel (Stuttgart, on loan from Monaco), Marc Andre Ter Stegen (Barcelona)

Defenders:

Joshua Kimmich (Bayern Munich), Robin Koch (Frankfurt), Maximilian Mittelstädt (Stuttgart), David Raum (RB Leipzig), Waldemar Anton (Stuttgart), Antonio Rüdiger (Real Madrid), Nico Schlotterbeck (Dortmund), Jonathan Tah (Leverkusen), Benjamin Henrichs (RB Leipzig)

Midfielders:

Robert Andrich (Leverkusen), Chris Führich (Stuttgart), Pascal Gross (Brighton), İlkay Gündoğan (Barcelona), Aleksandar Pavlović (Bayern Munich), Leroy Sane (Bayern Munich), Florian Wirtz (Leverkusen), Jamal Musiala (Bayern Munich), Toni Kroos (Real Madrid)

Forwards:

Niclas Füllkrug (Dortmund), Kai Havertz (Arsenal), Deniz Undav (Stuttgart), Thomas Muller (Bayern Munich), Maximilian Beier (Hoffenheim) 

Captain:

İlkay Gündoğan

Head Coach:

Julian Nagelsmann 


Despite Nagelsmann's intention of keeping four goalkeepers in the main squad, Alexander Nubel has been omitted. As expected, defender Mats Hummels will not be part of the group after he was removed from consideration after the last Euros. The 35-year-old enjoyed a stellar campaign by guiding Dortmund to the Champions League final but remains out of the national team's radar. Although Thomas Muller also suffered the same faith, the Bayern midfielder was back with the team for the Qatar World Cup in 2022 and is set to make his fourth consecutive appearance in the finals alongside Manuel Neuer, Ter Stegen and Toni Kroos. The Real Madrid midfielder announced his retirement from international football post-Euro 2020 but changed his mind earlier this year to make available for selection. Timo Werner and Leon Goretzka have been left out due to poor form while Serge Gnabry has been left out after a season-ending hamstring injury earlier this month. Midfielder Aleksandar Pavlović was left out of the squad at the last moment to be replaced by Dortmund’s Emre Can.
