“I’m not interested in the current state of the DFB selection. There are still a number of great players in Germany. And at the tournament in their country they will present a completely different face to everyone,” Xhaka told the Swiss news agency Keystone-SDA. Switzerland will play against Germany in the preliminary round of the European Championship.

The midfield strategist for Bundesliga leaders Bayer Leverkusen attributes Germany’s current weakness to the lack of qualifying games and the corresponding number of tests: “You are assigned by the organizer, so in the tests, which were sometimes arbitrary, a little tension was lost. all the players always gave their best – these are not some extraordinary things, they happen.”

Faith in the German team unites us Xhaka especially considering the skills of his club colleague Florian Wirtz. “Enjoy this boy while he plays football. Wow! Ozil was already a teammate for me, but Florian is on a completely different level. We will admire him for the next few years,” Xhaka said.
