Goalkeepers

Germany’s goalkeeper situation seems to be settled for the moment with Marc-Andre ter Stegen the clear number one choice. The Barcelona shot-stopper will provide a steady presence between the sticks.

Experienced pros like Kevin Trapp and Oliver Baumann offer quality depth while RB Leipzig’s Janis Blaswich has emerged recently as another viable option.

Defenders

In central defense, Antonio Rudiger has become a defensive lynchpin for Germany since moving to Real Madrid and will lead the backline. Other center back options like Mat Hummels and Niklas Sule provide the perfect blend of youth and experience.

Out wide, Germany has dynamic fullbacks like Benjamin Henrichs and David Raum who can charge up and down the flanks. Promising youngster Malick Thiaw also warrants consideration.

Midfielders

The midfield is where Germany’s true power lies with a stacked collection of central players. Bayern Munich duo Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka form a world-class pivot at the six and eight positions respectively.

Further forward, Germany has an embarrassment of riches to rely on including Ilkay Gundogan, Julian Brandt, Leroy Sane, and Florian Wirtz among others. Out wide, Jonas Hofmann and Serge Gnabry provide pace and directness.

Forwards

Up front, a combination of youth and experience exists to lead the line. Veterans like Bayern’s Thomas Muller remain invaluable assets, while young guns such as RB Leipzig’s Christopher Nkunku and Borussia Dortmund’s Niclas Fullkrug offer excitement and goals.

With positional versatility and depth across the board, Julian Nagelsmann has all the pieces needed construct a world-beating German side capable of reclaiming their status as the best in Europe at Euro 2024 playing on home soil.
