Gundogan and Rudiger return to Germany’s squad during the June friendlies

Today, Thursday, press reports stated that Hansi Flick, coach of the German national team, decided to call the experienced duo, Ilkay Gundogan and Antonio Rudiger, to the list of machines during the three friendlies that the team is playing in this June.

Flick will announce his list tomorrow, Friday, for the match against Ukraine on June 12 in Bremen, which represents the 1,000th match in the history of the German national team.

After completing the Ukraine experience, the German national team will meet outside its stadium with its Polish counterpart on June 16, and then face Colombia in Gelsenkirchen on the 20th of the same month.

Gundogan, the Manchester City midfielder, the English Premier League champion, missed the two friendly matches for Germany last March, when he beat Peru 2-0 and lost 2-3 against Belgium, when he had a child.

Flick also preferred at that time to give a rest to Real Madrid defender Rudiger, as he used a group of young players before the start of the machines’ journey in Euro 2024 in Germany in June and July next year.

According to “Kicker” magazine today, Thursday, Gundogan will not participate in the confrontation against Ukraine in light of his preoccupation with the upcoming match for Manchester City against Inter Milan in the Champions League final in Istanbul on the tenth of June.

And Flick announced last March that Thomas Mueller, the veteran midfielder for Bayern Munich, would not participate in the three friendly matches.

Flick will announce tomorrow whether he will use another group of experienced players, such as Leroy Sane and Niklas Zule.

It is expected that the rising star of Bayern Munich, Jamal Musiala, will return to the list of machines after his absence from the friendlies of Peru and Belgium due to injury, while the absence of goalkeeper and captain of the German national team, Manuel Neuer, will continue until next September at the latest, in light of his continued recovery from a broken leg.

The German national team will meet its Japanese guest on September 9 in Wolfsburg, and then meet France three days later in Dortmund, which is one of the ten cities hosting Euro 2024 events.

The German national team will also meet its American counterpart in Hartford on October 14, and then meet in another friendly in America with a competitor that will be revealed later.

It should be noted that Germany will not participate in the Euro 2024 qualifiers as the host country.
