Muller Eyes Recall To Germany Squad For 2021 Euro Championship

Muller Eyes Recall To Germany Squad For 2021 Euro Championship

Bayern Munich attacking midfielder, Thomas Muller, Strongly hopes that his impressive form for the club would earn him a recall to Germany squad for the first time since his bronze-winning feat with the Joachim Low’s side at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Muller made his senior international debut for Germany in 1-0 defeat to the Albiceleste of Argentina in a friendly match in March 2010 in which he replaced Toni Kroos in the 66th minute.

Muller has turned out well in the jersey number 13 for his country, as also worn by his older German legend, Gerd Muller. The Bayern Munich veteran player has so far played 100 games for Germany, scoring 38 goals.

He helped Germany to win the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil after winning a joint Golden boot award in the previous edition with five goals. But finishing third at the 2018 edition in Russia was considered somewhat a failure, and Germany head coach, Joachim Low, decided to drop the ageing players in his squad, including Muller (now 31); centre-back, Mats Hummels (now 31) and Jerome Boateng (now 32), who is also a central defender.

Muller has maintained a consistent fine form which helped Bayern Munich to win a quintuple in 2019/2020 season, and still making progress in the 2020/21 Champions League. And many have predicted a Germany recall for the Bayern great.

German television, Zweites Deutsches Fernsehen (ZDF), got Muller talking, as quoted in a report by Mykhel.com, about his international career moments after Bayern’s 4-0 win against Atletico Madrid in Wednesday’s Champions League match.

The next big tournament for Germany is the 2020 Euro Championship which has been postponed until June/July 2021, and Muller believes he can get a call-up on merit.

“Hopefully the tournament will take place next year” Muller told ZDF .

“Everyone can see that I am in good shape. We don’t need to say more about it. We’ll take it easy and then we’ll see what happens.”

    I think you guys made a little bit of error here. Germany did not finish third at the 2018 World Cup finals in Russia. As a matter of fact they did not qualify from their group. Belgium finished third beating England in the third-place playoffs.
