Germany have recalled Thomas Muller and Mats Hummels back to the international team ahead of Euro 2020 after announcing their 26-man squad for the tournament.
Bayern Munich’s Muller and Borussia Dortmund defender Hummels were both exiled from international duty in 2019 after they were eliminated at the group stage at the 2018 World Cup.
Shortly after the list was released, Hummels took to Twitter to express his delight after recalled to the international fold.
“I am really happy and proud to play for Germany again,” he said.
Ich bin sehr glücklich und stolz wieder dabei zu sein @DFB_Team
