Germany have finally released their 26-man squad for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar as the team gets ready to battle for the world’s most coveted football trophy.
The German side, who are the 2014 winners of the tournament, have gone for the best legs that are plying their trade in Europe, with Bayern Munich players dominating the squad.
Legendary Bundesliga and Bayern Munich forward Thomas Muller is named in the squad and will be leading the attacking lineup of the German team.
Also in the squad is Bayern Munich youngster Jamal Musiala, who has been in prolific form this season for the Bavarians.
Serge Gnabry, who scored his first hat trick this season in Bayern Munich’s 6-1 thrashing of Bremen is also in the squad.
Former Manchester City and Bayern Munich forward Leroy Sane is also picked by Hansi Flick, including former Chelsea and Real Madrid defender Anthony Rudiger.
Other top names on the list include Kai Harvertz, Mario Gotze, Joshua Kimmich, Julian Brandt, and Karim Adeyemi.
Goalkeepers: Manuel Neuer, Marc-Andre tee Stegen, and Kevin Trapp.
Defenders: Amel Bellar-Kotchap, Mathias Ginter, Christian Gunter, Thilo Kehrer, Lucas Klostermann, David Raum, Antonio Rudiger, Nico Schlotterbeck, and Niklas Sule.
Midfielders & Attack: Karim Adeyemi, Julian Brandt, Niklas Fullkrugg, Serge Gnabry, Leon Goretzka, Mario Gotze, IIkay Gundogan, Kai Havertz, Jonas Hoffman, Joshua Kimmich, Youssouffa Moukoko, Leroy Sane, Jamal Musiala, Thomas Muller.
Germany are in Group E and will kick start their World Cup campaign against Japan on 23 November before taking on Spain and Costa Rica.
They are top favorites to qualify from the group and also go far in the tournament after winning it in 2014.
Unfortunately, coach Hansi Flick will be without former Chelsea and RB Leipzig striker, Timo Werner, who has been ruled out due to injury.
Mario Gotze is a top and legendary playmaker making Hansi Flick’s World Cup lineup. Gotze scored the winner as Joachim Low led the team to the 2014 World Cup glory against Argentina in the finals.
This may likely be his last World Cup with the team, and he will be hoping to power Hansi Flick’s team to another World Cup glory.
Thomas Muller is another top player on the list and will make his fourth World Cup appearance after making his debut in the tournament in 2010.
Bayern Munich youngster Jamal Musiala will be making his World Cup debut after being in good shape for the Bavarians this season.
Musiala was eyed by English fans, who had hoped the highly-rated striker would pit his tent with the Three Lions squad, only to snub the Southgate-led team and chose Germany.
Musiala will hope to prove a point in Qatar as Germany battle in the tournament as one of the top favorites of the competition.
