Who are the new faces in the Germany squad?

Joachim Low has named Werder Bremen midfielder Maximilian Eggestein, Hertha Berlin centre-back Niklas Stark and RB Leipzig full-back Lukas Klostermann in his latest Germany squad for the upcoming games against Serbia and the Netherlands. What will the young tyros bring to the squad?


Maximilian Eggestein

Position: Central midfield

Club: Werder Bremen

Age: 22

Considering Germany already have the likes of Leon Goretzka, Ilkay Gündogan, Toni Kroos, Kai Havertz and Julian Brandt competing for a place in central midfield, you have to be something rather special to even be considered a worthy rival to that quintet. And make no mistake: Maximilian Eggestein is a special player. The all-action midfielder is one of the key reasons Bremen still harbor hopes of qualifying for Europe next term after a coming-of-age season in which he has only missed seven minutes so far.

Blessed with the kind of stamina a marathon runner can only dream of, Eggestein averages 7.46 miles per game (most players barely scratch the 7 mile mark) and his total of 123.93 miles is second only to Bayern Munich's Joshua Kimmich in 2018/19. A robust tackler and strong reader of the game, the Bremen No.35 is adept either as a holding midfielder or in a more attacking role.

Arguably it is his improvement in the latter regard this season that has caught Löw's eye. With most national teams now opting to sit deep against Germany, anyone who can provide a moment of magic in the final third is highly prized.
