Stindl named in Germany’s Confed Cup squad


Germany head coach Joachim Löw has named Lars Stindl in the senior squad for the very first time. The Borussia captain will be part of the team heading to the 2017 Confederations Cup in Russia.

Lars Stindl is in line to win his first senior Germany cap. The 28-year-old was named in Joachim Löw’s 2017 Confed Cup squad on Wednesday afternoon, with the summer tournament set to take place in Russia between 17th June and 2nd July. “I was delighted to get the call from the national team coach. Being in the Germany squad is a huge honour for me. It’s a dream come true,” said Stindl, who so far has only made one appearance for the U21s and three for the U20s. Should Stindl feature for the senior team, he would become the 39th Borussia player to win a Germany cap. The most recent one is Patrick Herrmann, who last wore Germany colours in June 2015.

Joachim Löw has nominated a total of 23 players for the Confederations Cup. The tournament serves as a dress rehearsal for the 2018 World Cup and features a total of eight teams. Alongside defending world champions Germany, hosts Russia, Copa América champions Chile, EURO 2016 winners Portugal, AFC Asian Cup champions Australia, OFC Nations Cup champions New Zealand, AFCON winners Cameroon and CONCACAF Gold Cup winners Mexico have also qualified. Germany are in Group B and will meet Australia (19th June, 17:00 CEST), Chile (22nd June, 20:00 CEST) and Cameroon (25th June, 18:00 CEST).
