Whenever it comes to a major tournament, Germany are usually there or thereabouts. It’s common knowledge that you dismiss the Germans at your peril.
When it comes to the European Championship, Germany have a rich history, with no side having won the competition more than them with three triumphs (tied with Spain).
That all said, Germany had a disastrous World Cup in 2018, crashing out at the group stage, while they lost to North Macedonia earlier this year and were thrashed 6-0 by Spain last year. Which Germany side will turn up this time?
Ahead of the Euros, we’ve taken a look at all you need to know about Germany – from the Germany squad announcement, to their upcoming fixtures, to the latest and best odds for Germany.
Who’s in the confirmed line up for Germany’s 2021 squad?
There were a few interesting selections in Joachim Low’s 26-man Germany Euros squad. Former England youth international Jamal Musiala is selected, while elsewhere there is a recall for Thomas Muller, who last played for Germany in 2018. See below for who is in the Germany squad.
Who do Germany play next at the Euros?
As for the Germany Euro fixtures, having been drawn alongside France, Portugal and Hungary in Group F – the Group of Death – there are some tough matches ahead. They open their campaign against world champions France on June 15 before facing reigning champions Portugal on June 19 and then Hungary on June 23. All three fixtures take place in Munich.
What are the odds that Germany win the Euros?
As mentioned, Germany are usually there or thereabouts in major tournaments, which is they are available at 8/1 to go all the way. Given their recent inconsistencies, however, getting out of Group F could yet be a struggle. The Germans are 6/4 to finish top of the group ahead of France, Portugal and Hungary.
What’s the latest news on the Germany football team?
As for team news, the only significant absence when it comes to injuries is Leon Goretzka in central midfield. Elsewhere, Joshua Kimmich could move to the right, where he spent the first few seasons of his career, to allow Ilkay Gundogan and Toni Kroos to feature centrally for Germany.
