Jamal Musiala named in Germany squad after snubbing England call-up but Muller, Boateng and Hummels exile continues

JAMAL MUSIALA has been called up to Germany’s senior squad after snubbing England.

Bayern Munich’s 18-year-old former Chelsea attacker has been included in the seniors for the first time for this month’s World Cup qualifiers.

Now he will be hoping to earn a debut cap in the clashes with Iceland, Romania and North Macedonia.

Gareth Southgate’s England had hoped to convince the hot prospect, who also qualifies for Nigeria, to commit his future to them after he featured for their youth sides.

But the Stuttgart-born ace announced several weeks ago that he was opting to represent the country he was born in.

Musiala wrote a Twitter post, accompanied with a prayer and heart emoji, which read: “I am very proud to get my first senior DFB call up and very excited to meet the team.”

The attacking midfielder has racked up 28 appearances for Bayern this season, netting four times.

The soon-to-be departing German boss Joachim Low has also handed another talented teen an opportunity to shine.

Florian Wirtz, 17, is also looking to make his bow after being rewarded for his impressive displays at Bayer Leverkusen.

Meanwhile, Low has continued to leave out veterans Jerome Boateng, Mats Hummels and Thomas Muller.

The World Cup winners have all been overlooked in recent internationals as Low opted to give youth its chance.

The head coach has left the door open for the trio all to return to the fold ahead of the European Championship this summer.

But it seems the threesome have still not done enough to convince Low they deserve a recall just yet.

Low recently announced that he will walk away from the job following the Euros.

He will therefore oversee the start of their attempted journey to World Cup success, but he will not see the campaign all the way through to Qatar in December 2022.
