The preliminary Euro squad has been announced!
(For those on e-readers, that's
Tor: Neuer, ter Stegen, Wiese, Zieler.
Abwehr: Badstuber, Boateng, Höwedes, Hummels, Lahm, Mertesacker, Schmelzer.
Mittelfeld: Lars und Sven Bender, Draxler, Götze, Gündogan, Khedira, Kroos, Müller, Özil, Podolski, Reus, Schürrle, Schweinsteiger.
Angriff: Cacau, Gomez, Klose.)
SO! Thoughts? I'm surprised by Draxler, Schmelzer and ter Stegen (since two are new and Schmelle has gotten so little time with the NT)! Hooray for Bender twins! Per is still nominated! Also Träsch and Aogo have (finally? XD) been dropped! Otherwise...not really unexpected.
