Euros: Germany news, fixtures, manager, key players, Euros record

Germany will look to make home advantage count at Euro 2024, as they go in search of their fourth success in the tournament.

Die Mannschaft have failed to impress on the big stage in recent years, but under Julian Nagelsmann, they will hope to prove they can handle the pressure that comes with hosting a major tournament.

As hosts, Germany did not have to qualify for this summer's Euros, and they were drawn in Group A alongside Scotland, Hungary and Switzerland.

Germany manager

Julian Nagelsmann

Germany turned to Nagelsmann in September 2023, and he signed a contract until July 2024 to replace the sacked Hansi Flick.

He became Germany's second youngest head coach at 36, but he has already carved a name for himself as manager of Hoffenheim, RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich.

Nagelsmann won the Bundesliga title with Bayern in 2022 and winning a major international trophy would do his reputation the world of good, and he should feel right at home this summer.

Germany captain

Ilkay Gundogan

The 33-year-old represented Germany at Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level, while he played at Euro 2012 and Euro 2020, as well as the World Cups in 2018 and 2022.

The former Manchester City midfielder helped the Citizens win the treble in the 2022/23 season before joining Barcelona last summer and he provides a wealth of experience in Germany's midfield.

His ability to support both attack and defence will give Germany an added boost throughout this summer's tournament.

Germany key players

Jamal Musiala

Bayern Munich forward Musiala will look to showcase his skills on the big stage this summer, but he has already made a name for himself in the Bundesliga.

His dribbling, pace and eye for goal have caused defenders problems in recent years and he will be one of the first names on Nagelsmann's teamsheet if he is fit.

Kai Havertz

After a slow start to his Arsenal career, Havertz is now flourishing under Mikel Arteta.

The Gunners have played him in midfield and as a false nine, but he is likely to play up front for Germany.

If he can transfer his club form to the national team, this could be a huge summer for the former Chelsea man.

Toni Kroos

Real Madrid midfielder Kroos will retire from football following Euro 2024, after ending his club career by winning La Liga and the Champions League with the Spanish giants.

His experience and passing ability will add another dimension to Germany's midfield as they try to go all the way this summer.

Germany one to watch

Florian Wirtz

Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Wirtz has won the Bundesliga this season and he could help Germany lift their fourth European Championship title.

Several of Europe's biggest clubs are already scouting Wirtz and this summer could see him become of the biggest stars in world football.

Germany's Euro 2024 prospects

Having home advantage will certainly help Germany, but they have a lot of work to do to try and get the fans on side after several poor results in major tournaments.

Germany will be well prepared and they have the perfect blend of youth and experience. They have usually had a classic No.9 up front scoring goals, but if they can get Havertz and Musiala firing, then there's every chance they can go all the way.
