Schult hopes both Bayern goalkeepers will take part in the European Championship Newer and Marc-Andre ter Stegen from FC Barcelona are in excellent form. “It’s good that we have no problems at all in this position,” said the former national team goalkeeper and Olympic champion. Kevin Trapp (Eintracht Frankfurt), Oliver Baumann (TSG 1899 Hoffenheim) and Bernd Leno (Fulham) are also strong goalkeepers.

Former national team goalkeeper René Adler, who was also present in Hamburg, said of Ter Stegen: “His performances in Barcelona were world class.” However, Adler described the 31-year-old’s performances in the national jersey as good.

Regarding the state of the national team ahead of the continental tournament, Adler, who played for Bayer Leverkusen, Hamburg and Mainz 05 in the Bundesliga, said: “The best thing is that we still have time to develop.” The most important task for national team coach Julian Nagelsmann in the months remaining before the European Championships is to “form a team from existing world-class players.”
