World Cup winners Thomas Mueller and Mats Hummels Wednesday secured a return to the German national team for the first time in more than two years after coach Joachim Loew included them in his 26-man Euro 2020 squad.

Mueller and Hummels, winners of the 2014 World Cup under Loew, were some of the players dropped after Germany's disappointing 2018 World Cup first round exit and their losing Nations League performance later that year.

But an overhaul that was interrupted by the pandemic in the past 12 months failed to yield any tangible results as the team crashed to their biggest competitive defeat - a 6-0 loss to Spain - as recently as last November.

Loew praised Mueller's superb season with Bayern Munich.

Mueller has delivered 18 assists and 11 goals in the Bundesliga alone, while Hummels has established himself as leader at freshly-crowned German Cup winners Borussia Dortmund, forcing Loew into a U-turn.

Loew also included Monaco striker Kevin Volland, who has not played for Germany since 2016, following a strong season in the French league, as well as Bayern teenager Jamal Musiala, who earned his first callup as recently as March.

Freiburg defender Christian Guenter also surprisingly made the cut, hoping to add to his only cap from back in 2014.

The Germans are in Group F along with Hungary, holders Portugal and France, and play all three of their group matches in Munich.


Neuer, Leno, Trapp, Ginter, Ruediger, Hummels, Gosens, Guenter, Halstenberg, Klostermann, Koch, Suele, Gnabry, Goretzka, Can, Gundogan, Havertz, Hofmann, Kimmich, Kroos, Mueller, Musiala, Neuhaus, Sane, Volland, Werner
