Matthias Ginter will take part in Germany’s European Championship qualification match against Belarus, while Borussia’s Swiss players are looking to take home third place in the Nations League. Meanwhile, Florian Neuhaus has been selected to Germany’s U21 squad for the upcoming European Championship in Italy and San Marino.

Germany

On tomorrow’s schedule for Borussia defender Matthias Ginter and the German national team is their second European Championship qualification match (20:45 CEST). After a 3-2 win against the Netherlands, Germany are looking to continue their success in Borisov against Belarus. “We’re coming out of a break, and need to find our rhythm. Sometimes, that means exorcising your inner demons,” said Marcus Sorg, who will replace head coach Joachim Löw for the match. Currently, Germany are third in Group C, but have played one game less than the Netherlands and Northern Ireland, who currently top the group. Belarus lost both their previous matches and is at the bottom of the group.

Switzerland


Last night confirmed who Switzerland will face off against for third place in the Nations League on Sunday afternoon (15:00 CEST). After a 3-1 loss against the Netherlands, England will take part in the consolation final in Guimaraes. Yann Sommer and Denis Zakaria started the semifinal against Portugal, while Josip Drmic was subbed on later in the game. Nico Elvedi and Michael Lang did not feature.

Slovakia

László Bénes, who will return to Borussia this season after being on loan to Holstein Kiel, is underway with Slovakia’s national team. On Friday 7th June (20:30 CEST), Slovakia will take part in a friendly against Jordan. The match is part of Slovakia’s preparation for their European qualification match on Tuesday (18:00 CEST) in Azerbaijan. László Bénes has made one appearance for Slovakia’s senior squad.

Germany U21

Florian Neuhaus has been selected to Germany’s U21 squad for the upcoming European Championship. Head coach Stefan Kuntz selected Neuhaus as one of 10 midfielders for the tournament, which will run from 16th to 30th June in Italy and San Marino. Currently, Germany’s U21’s are still at training camp in Natz in South Tyrol. The team will kick off their tournament on 17th June against Denmark (21:00 CEST).

Denmark U21

Neuhaus will face off against fellow Borussia teammate Andreas Poulsen, who was selected to Denmark’s final squad ahead of the tournament. Poulsen has made seven appearances for Denmark’s U21’s.
