Liverpool midfielder Emre Can has been called up to Germany’s squad for this summer’s U21 European Championship.
Despite Sunday’s result, the 21-year-old has enjoyed a promising first season at Anfield, but has failed to cement a place in his most comfortable position of central midfield. He has often been deployed deeper, featuring either at the centre of defence or at right-back.
Nevertheless, he has been rewarded by being given the opportunity to add to his current total of nine caps for the side when the tournament begins in the Czech Republic next month.
The Germans will be looking to win their second title, having last won the competition in 2009, when Horst Hrubesch’s side – consisting of the likes of Manuel Neuer, Sami Khedira, Mesut Ozil – demolished England 4-0 in the final.
They kick off their campaign in Prague with a clash against Serbia, before games against Denmark and the hosts.
The only other representative from the Premier League in the German squad is Arsenal’s Serge Gnabry.
Here is the full squad:
