Cologne (AP) – Mahmoud Dahoud of Borussia Dortmund can hope for his first appearance in the German national team, according to a report in the media.
National coach Joachim Löw will appoint the 24-year-old in the selection for the upcoming international matches, the sports buzzer reported. The German national team will meet Turkey on October 7 in a friendly match in Cologne. Three days later the games in the Nations League are scheduled, first in Kiev against Ukraine and again in Cologne against Switzerland. In the competition, the DFB-Elf is still without a win.
From the U18, Dahoud has been a member of all junior teams of the German Football Association and was European U21 champion in 2017. More than three years ago, he moved from Borussia Mönchengladbach to Dortmund. The midfielder has not yet played a role in the German senior team.
Bayern stars Manuel Neuer, Joshua Kimmich, Serge Gnabry and Leon Goretzka, as well as Lukas Klostermann and Marcel Halstenberg from Leipzig should return for the upcoming international matches. Low did not use them in the recent Nations League matches against Spain (1: 1) and Switzerland (1: 1). Due to the high load, the national coach will probably be appointed more than the usual 23 players.
