The work for Stefan Kuntz starts all over again: He welcomes a new year to the U-21 national team. Two talents are questionable, one has been nominated.
Subsequent nominations: Kilian Ludewig can hope for his debut for the German U21s.
Originally, Kuntz decided on 21 players born between 2000 and 2004 in order to tackle the upcoming qualifying matches for the EM 2023 in Romania and Georgia. However, it is not yet clear whether all of them will be able to contribute.
Two players still have to undergo an MRI exam on Monday. Only then will it be decided whether they will travel to the U21 internationals. The DFB did not say who it was exactly.
For this reason, too, Kuntz has nominated a talent as a precaution: Kilian Ludewig (21) from RB Salzburg can hope for his debut. In addition to him, keeper Nico Mantl, another Salzburg hope, was appointed for the first time for the German U21s.
