Germany’s provisional Euro 2016 squad announced

Published Add your comment

Germany have announced their provisional squad for this summer’s European Championships in France.

The usual suspects - Manuel Neuer, Mesut Ozil, Marco Reus, Thomas Muller etc - are all included.

Arguably the biggest surprise is the inclusion of Bastian Schweinsteiger, who hasn’t played for Manchester United since coming on as a second-half substitute in the 1-0 victory over Manchester City in March. (Scroll down to see the full Germany squad).

The inclusion of Lukas Podolski has also raised a few eyebrows - despite the fact the 30-year-old, who now plies his trade for Galatasaray, boasts an excellent goalscoring record for the reigning world champions.

Joachim Low has also called up several exciting youngsters, though, including Borussia Dortmund’s highly-rated midfielder Julian Weigl.
