share on:

Good news for Marco Reus, as the Borussia Dortmund star makes his return to the nation team. As he will be part of the Germany squad to face Ireland and Georgia.

A toe injury forced Reus out of the qualifiers that earned Germany top spot in the Group D Euro 2016 qualifiers.

Should Germany avoid defeat against Ireland, they’ll have qualified for the competition. Bernd Leno of Bayer Leverkusen earned his first call up ahead of Ron-Zieler.

Low said: “Our goal is to win the two games against Ireland and Georgia and to qualify as group winners for the European Championship in France.

“I have great confidence in the players. These players are regularly called upon with their clubs in the league and at European level, they have a good rhythm.”

On Leno’s selection, Germany goalkeeping coach Andreas Kopke added: “I have already said that behind Manuel Neuer on the position of the goalkeeper we have several candidates in mind.

“I told Ron-Robert Zieler we know what he can do and what we have in him. Bernd Leno has earned this nomination through consistent and good [performances] at Bayer Leverkusen.”

Full squad:

Goalkeepers: Manuel Neuer (Bayern Munich), Marc-Andre ter Stegen (Barcelona), Bernd Leno (Bayer Leverkusen)
