Germany Releases 27-Man Euro Squad; Odds To Win Remain Similar

26

Germany manager Julian Nagelsmann has unveiled his 27-man squad for Euro 2024. Veterans Manuel Neuer and Toni Kroos are in the mix, along with elite youngsters such as Florian Wirtz and Jamal Musiala.

However, a few big names missed out on a place in Germany’s Euro 2024 squad, including Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels. We break down the roster below and discuss how Germany could line up at the tournament for those looking to wager at Euro betting sites.

Breaking down Germany’s 27-man roster for the Euros

Nagelsmann has named a 27-man squad, but it will shrink to 26 after Germany’s friendly games against Ukraine and Greece in June.

  • Goalkeepers: Oliver Baumann (Hoffenheim), Alex Nubel (Stuttgart), Manuel Neuer (Bayern Munich), Marc-André ter Stegen (Barcelona)
  • Defenders: Waldemar Anton (Stuttgart), Benjamin Henrichs (RB Leipzig), Joshua Kimmich (Bayern Munich), Robin Koch (Eintracht Frankfurt), Maximilian Mittelstädt (Stuttgart), David Raum (RB Leipzig), Antonio Rüdiger (Real Madrid), Nico Schlotterbeck (Borussia Dortmund), Jonathan Tah (Bayer Leverkusen)
  • Midfielders: Robert Andrich (Bayer Leverkusen), Chris Führich (Stuttgart), Pascal Gross (Brighton and Hove Albion), Ilkay Gündogan (Barcelona), Toni Kroos (Real Madrid), Jamal Musiala (Bayern Munich), Aleksandar Pavlović (Bayern Munich), Leroy Sané (Bayern Munich), Florian Wirtz (Bayer Leverkusen)
  • Forwards: Maximilian Beier (Hoffenheim), Niclas Füllkrug (Borussia Dortmund), Kai Havertz (Arsenal), Thomas Müller (Bayern Munich), Deniz Undav (Stuttgart)

The big news is that Neuer is on the squad. The 38-year-old goalkeeper has not played for Team Germany since breaking his leg in 2022, but he is now back in business for Bayern Munich, and he will compete with Marc-André ter Stegen for a place in the starting XI.

Toni Kroos has also earned a place in the squad. Real Madrid’s midfield maestro will retire after this tournament, so he will aim for a glorious swansong before hanging up his boots.

Nagelsmann also called up four uncapped players: goalkeepers Oliver Baumann and Alex Nubel, Bayern midfielder Aleksandar Pavlović, and Hoffenheim striker Maximilian Beier. Pavlović has been superb for Bayern Munich this season, and he could bring youthful vitality to a midfield populated with veterans like Kroos and Ilkay Gündogan.

Key players left out

Bayern Munich midfielder Leon Goretzka did not make Germany’s 27-man squad for Euro 2024, though Pavlović, his midfield partner at Bayern this season, did.

Mats Hummels and Julian Brandt helped Borussia Dortmund reach the 2024 Champions League final, but both are not on the squad for Euro 2024. Some other experienced players also missed out, including Bernd Leno, Kevin Trapp, Matthias Ginter, Niklas Süle, Robin Gosens, Jonas Hofmann, and Emre Can.

Germany will also be without the injured trio of Serge Gnabry, Timo Werner, and Felix Nmecha. The loss of Gnabry is a blow, but the Germans still have a lot of pace and quality in attack.

Some sportsbooks were offering +650 odds to win Euro 2024 before Nagelsmann named his roster, but the number now stands at for Germany to lift the trophy.

Projecting Germany’s starting 11 for Euro 2024

Neuer has been Germany’s first-choice goalkeeper since 2010, so he could start at this tournament after recently returning from injury.

Nagelsmann is likely to opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation. Jonathan Tah has been magnificent for Bayer Leverkusen this season, so he could start alongside Real Madrid’s Antonio Rüdiger at the heart of the defense, with Joshua Kimmich and Maximilian Mittelstädt on the flanks.

Kroos, Gundogan and Robert Andrich are likely to form a midfield triumvirate, although Pavlović could potentially take Andrich’s place. Arsenal’s Kai Havertz is expected to spearhead the attack, with Musiala and Wirtz on the wings. Leroy Sané, Thomas Müller, and Niclas Füllkrug provide some alternative attacking options for Nagelsmann.
