Nigeria born Germany junior international Karim Adeyemi has been tipped to make a senior debut for the German machines later tonight .
Adeyemi born in Munich to a Nigerian father and Romanian mother had prior to this time played for Germany under 16, 17 and 21 respectively with very impressive contribution.
Adeyemi and three other players David Raum, Nico Schlotterbeck and Florian Wirtz could make their international debuts while the likes of Reus, Ridle Baku and Mahmoud Dahoud were all handed recalls.
Meanwhile Dortmund ace Marco Reus is hoping to play a similar role for Germany under new head coach Hansi Flick as he does for Borussia Dortmund at club level.
Reus withdrew himself from selection for this summer’s UEFA Euro 2020, Germany’s final major tournament under long-standing head coach Joachim Löw, with the 32-year-old citing an extreme schedule during the previous season with Dortmund and his past injury troubles as the reason behind his need for a summer of rest.
Now refreshed and rejuvenated and ready to work under former Bayern Munich tactician Flick as he takes over from Löw, Reus who has made 44 appearances for his country, scoring 11 goals is keen to play an important role in a new era for Die Mannschaft.
“I’m one of the oldest and the captain of a club team,” Reus told a press conference ahead of the first of three games across the next week for Germany. “I want to take on responsibility and play an important role here too.
“I had no thoughts of quitting,” Reus, who last played at an international tournament at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, added. “So, it wasn’t a big question that I should come here. We’re now in the middle of a new start. I hope that we have a successful future. We want to get started well now and bring a breath of fresh air into it.”
After today’s opener against Liechtenstein, Germany take on Armenia and Iceland subsequently.
