Germany are heading into the 2020 UEFA Euro pretty much wounded with so many problems on and off the field as far as the potential squad and expected performances are concerned. Long term head coach Joachim Löw has announced that he will be leaving the German national side after the Euros while the squad as very unbalanced unlike historic German squad which were efficient, balanced and prepared.
We take a look at Germany’s potential 26-man squad for Euro 2020 and analyze how they will lineup once the tournament gets underway on 11th June 2020.
Germany’s Possible 26-Man Squad For UEFA Euro 2020:
For the first time in since forever, Germany will go into the tournament as not favorites considering their last few years performances both in big tournaments and in the qualifiers. They just lost against North Mecedonia at home which will be their last game before the start their Euro 2020 campaign so not much is expected from this side.

German’s Possible Starting Lineup in Euro 2020:
Thomas Muller has rediscovered his form with club side Bayern Munich and will lead the line for Germany with Serge Gnabry, Werner/Sane playing on either side. We might expect Germany to start in 3-4-3 formation where Sane, Werner and Gnabry can be used to their full potential. Kroose and Goretzka will start in midfield while Gosens and Klosstermann to play as winbacks alongside 3 man defense of Hummels, Sule and Ginter.
It will be interesting to see whether captain Manuel Neuer can keep his place in the side with top form of Andre Ter Stegen of Barcelona who many believes should be given the nod ahead of German legend.
