In the midst of an excellent Bundesliga season and a real fight for the championship, the spotlight will be on the German team next week. Yogi Lev’s trainees will open the World Cup qualifying campaign against Iceland (25.3, in Duisburg), Romania (28.3, in Bucharest) and against Northern Macedonia (31.3, in Duisburg).

The coach, who will leave at the end of the Euros, continues to keep Thomas Muller and Mats Hummels at home, but he may change his mind in the final summons ahead of the European Championships in May. Meanwhile two young stars have grabbed the title.

Lev announced the addition of 17-year-old Florian Wurz from Leverkusen and Jamal Musilla (18) from Bayern Munich for the first time. The first is considered one of the leading young talents in German football and has a great future ahead of it. The second, has already won the Champions League quarter-finals, and earlier this month selected the German team over England, where he grew up and was educated during his childhood. A surprising new summons at the Mannschaft is Amin Younes from Frankfurt.

Despite recent reports, the German stars playing in England have been called up to the squad after it became clear they did not need to go into isolation. These are Elki Gondwane (Manchester City), Timo Werner, Kai Haberz, Anthony Rodiger (Chelsea) and Brand Lano (Arsenal).
