Germany boss Low opens door for Thomas Muller and Mats Hummels to finally return to team after 2019 exile


GERMANY manager Joachim Low has opened the door to Thomas Muller and Mats Hummels returning to the national team.

The pair were discarded after Low’s side were embarrassingly dumped out of the 2018 World Cup in the group stage.

But now it appears Low, who won the World Cup with Hummels and Muller in his team in 2014, is more receptive to the idea of them coming back into the fold.

Speaking to Kicker, he said: “Special circumstances can justify an interruption in the upheaval.

“That (the future of the trio) will be a difficult and important question, also for me.

“The character of Thomas Muller and Mats Hummels is that they don’t oppress others.”

Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng was another player dropped by Low after the shambolic 2018 tournament.

But the centre-back was not mentioned by the German boss, leaving his international future in doubt still.

Meanwhile, Bayern Munich teenager Jamal Musiala could be set to receive his first call-up to the national side after choosing Germany over England.

The 18-year-old, who has played for England at youth level, opted to choose the country he was born in when making his decision last month.

Musiala has played 26 times for Bayern so far this season, netting four goals including in their 4-1 win over Lazio in the last 16 of the Champions League.

Germany have been drawn in a fiercely competitive Euro 2020 group alongside holders Portugal, world champions France and Hungary.
