Departing Germany coach Joachim Löw has announced his 26-man squad for this summer’s Euro 2020 football matches, with a couple of surprise inclusions of the likes of Freiburg left-back Christian Günter and AS Monaco striker Kevin Volland. World Cup winning duo of Bayern Munich forward Thomas Muller and Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels also make their return in the squad.
Germany reached the semi-finals of Euro 2016, losing to hosts France. Low’s Germany have qualified for the Euro finals for a record 13th time in a row. Germany have been drawn into a challenging group alongside France, Portugal, and Hungary for Euro 2020. They are scheduled to play their opening group game at the delayed tournament against France on June 15 in Munich’s Allianz Arena.

Sousa’s side play Slovakia in their opening group game in St Petersburg on June 14.
Poland striker Krzysztof Piatek also confirmed his absence in the squad before the announcement, citing his ankle injury picked up during Hertha BSC’s Bundesliga match against Schalke. Piatek will be joined by Kamil Grosicki as the biggest names to miss out on the 26-man squad.
