Cologne (AP) – Coach Marco Rose of Bundesliga football club Borussia Mönchengladbach is hoping for the debut of his midfielders Florian Neuhaus and Jonas Hofmann in the national team next week.
“Sure, I want to see my boys play”, Rose said after the 3-1 derby at 1. FC Köln: “It would be a special moment if they could play for Germany for the first time.”
Low has been nominated for the friendly against Turkey on October 7 in Cologne as well as for the Nations League matches against Ukraine on October 10 and against Switzerland on October 13 in Cologne. Hofmann (28) was first hired by Löw, Neuhaus (23) was part of the squad for the first time during the two games in October, but was not substituted.
“The week couldn’t go any better,” Hofmann said after Saturday’s win. Neuhaus explained, “We were very happy and also developed anticipation.”
