21 June: No holding back

Germany may have already sealed their place in the knockouts of Euro 2024, but for Toni Kroos, there is every reason for the hosts to go at full pelt in their final group game against Switzerland on Sunday. "There’s no reason not to give 100 per cent," the star insisted. "Finishing first in the group would be a real statement and it’s important we keep up our good run."

19 June: Switzerland draw with Scotland

In Group A's other group-stage clash, Scotland held Switzerland to a 1-1 draw in Cologne. That means that a point for Germany in their clash with the Swiss will be enough to see them go through as group winners.

19 June: Nagelsmann hails "mature performance"

The Germany coach said: "It was a mature performance. We would not have won that game back in November. We passed the ball around well in the second half with a decent speed. Passing tempo is extremely important for creating space. All in all, we can be pleased."

19 June: New Neuer record

The Bayern Munich shot stopper has joined Gianluigi Buffon in becoming just the second goalkeeper to ever make 17 appearances at European championships.

19 June: Neuer - "We are very happy"

"We were desperate to back up the performance against Scotland, and we knew it wouldn't be easy against Hungary, a team who have caused us problems in the past. We are therefore very happy to have won here in Stuttgart with a dominant performance"."

19 June: Gündoğan - "Players around me are making it easier"

"I am always looking to fulfill my responsibilities on the pitch. I think, with each training session and each game we play together, we have a better feeling. I am playing in a different position than at Barcelona but the players around me are making it easier."

19 June: Germany beat Hungary 2-0 to move into round of 16

Julian Nagelsmann and Co. prevail in Stuttgart as they secure progression to the knockouts! Jamal Musiala opened the scoring before the break, and İlkay Gündoğan netted after the interval to put the result beyond doubt. Hungary had their moments, but ultimately didn't do enough to get anything from the clash. Germany play Switzerland in their final group-stage match, which is likely to decide who wins Group A.
camera-photo

19 June: Qualification up for grabs

If they win and Switzerland beat Scotland later in the evening, Germany will seal their spot in the knockouts tonight. That would make for a perfect start to the campaign after just two group matches.

18 June: Maximilian Mittelstädt previews encounter

"It will be a very difficult match against Hungary. If we can make things as difficult for them as we did against Scotland, it will be a good match. We can't ease up by a single percent and have to be efficient. It is a bit surreal to have developed so much in the past year. I always believed in myself and have been able to develop further in Stuttgart. My entire family will be in the stadium tomorrow. I am really looking forward to it."

18 June: Julian Nagelsmann speaks on Hungary

"Hungary have a well-gelled team that has developed over several years. They are very physical, even if they didn't show that against Switzerland. They are good on the break and have strikers who are strong in the air. Szoboszlai is extremely good at taking set pieces, and Orbán can finish these extremely well. Hungary will have to be more attacking, as they are under more pressure than we are."

18 June: Today's plan

It's the eve of Germany's second game against Hungary. They'll hold their final training session in Herzogenaurach at 11am before making the 200 kilometre bus journey to Stuttgart. Julian Nagelsmann and VfB defender Maximilian Mittelstädt will then speak at the pre-match press conference from the Mercedes-Benz Arena at 5.30pm.

17 June: End of the line this summer?

Neuer was also asked at his press conference if this will be his last tournament with Germany. "I can't yet reveal that, but I'll have a think about it after the tournament," the Bayern goalkeeper stated.

17 June: Neuer set for history

A player who's already redefined what it means to be a goalkeeper in football, Neuer is set to make further history on Wednesday as he plays his 17th game at a Euros finals. That will take him level with Gianluigi Buffon for most appearances in the tournament by a goalkeeper. He already holds that honour at World Cups.
camera-photo

17 June: Neuer focused on Euros, not press

Manuel Neuer has been speaking about some of the reaction to his error in Germany's pre-Euro friendly win over Greece. "I didn’t read anything," he told media. "I've always done it that way. I go into the analysis with the people in charge here. We discuss everything and look at the pictures and evaluate everything based on the pictures. So I didn’t think much about the debate. What's important is the relationship of trust between coaches, players and me. And there's a lot of trust there. We showed real confidence in our opener, but Hungary are a different proposition. We won't underestimate them."

16 June: New deal for Pavlović

Aleksandar Pavlović was forced to withdraw from the Germany squad due to tonsilitis, but there's been some good news for the young midfielder as he's signed a new contract with Bayern to keep him at his boyhood club until 2029. "Bayern is my home. I'm proud, happy and grateful, want to win trophies with the team and continue my personal development," the 20-year-old said.

Nico Schlotterbeck went to watch a youth tournament organised by adidas featuring four local U11 teams from FC Herzogenaurach, ⁠ASV Herzogenaurach, ⁠ASV Niederndorf and ⁠Hammersbacher SV. Schlotterbeck and assistant coach Mads Buttgereit even got involved before granting selfie and autograph wishes.

15 June: Can: "Feels incredibly good"

Dortmund captain Emre Can scored off the bench just days after being called up to the squad to replace Aleksandar Pavlović. "It still feels incredibly good. It's a great feeling that you can't really describe. I'm very grateful. I've used that word a lot in the past few hours, but that's how it is. I'm so grateful to be here. We made the ideal start to the tournament yesterday as a team. And it was obviously a special highlight for me personally."

15 June: Wirtz JUST beats Musiala to record

The Bundesliga Player of the Season opened the scoring against Scotland to go down in history as the youngest German player to get a goal at the Euros, aged 21 years and 42 days. The funny thing is that Jamal Musiala would've claimed that same record if Wirtz hadn't scored nine minutes before he did. The Bayern man is 67 days older.
camera-photo

15 June: Müller climbs the chart

The Bayern man came off the bench on his home ground to earn his 130th gap for Germany, which takes him level with Lukas Podolski in third place in the country's all-time list of appearances. Miroslav Klose sits in second on 137. Müller could reach a maximum of 136 if he plays in every game as Germany reach the final. Lothar Matthäus holds the record with 150.

15 June: Back in camp

The Germany squad went straight back to their training base in Herzogenaurach after Friday's game in Munich, arriving back in camp at around 2.30am after the drive north through Bavaria.

15 June: Huge audience

Almost 22.5 million people watched the opening game on TV in Germany. That's some five million more than two years ago at the World Cup for the games against Spain and Costa Rica.

What next for Germany?

"We'll give the team some rest tomorrow," said Nagelsmann on Friday night. "There will be light training but no analysis. We'll start preparing on Sunday, then have two days of focused training and will try do play just as well on Wednesday." That game is against Hungary in Stuttgart.

Nagelsmann: "We kept our focus"

Germany head coach Julian Nagelsmann also shared his thoughts. "We started fantastically. The first 20 minutes were impressive, we showed a lot of power and were proactive in our pressing. That helped us a lot. All in all, we were concentrated throughout and we kept our focus right until the end."

Füllkrug: "Brilliant way to start"

Niclas Füllkrug spoke to German TV channel ZDF after full-time and said: "We felt that it was different this time, even before the game. It certainly didn't go unnoticed how good the atmosphere has been in Munich, and we are obviously happy. It was a brilliant way to start the tournament, which is exactly what we wanted."

Germany kick off Euro 2024 in style

The hosts are up and running, after thrashing Scotland 5-1 in the Euro 2024 opener. Florian Wirtz and Jamal Musiala goals set the tone, before Kai Havertz and substitutes Nicolas Füllkrug and Emre Can got in on the act. The only blot to the copybook was a late Antonio Rüdiger own goal between Germany's fourth and fifth strikes.

Watch: The best from Germany's final pre-Euros press conference

Take a look at the best bits as captain İlkay Gündoğan and Julian Nagelsmann spoke to the press for the final time ahead of Germany's Euro 2024 opener against Scotland in Munich.

Captain Gündoğan:

"I'm expecting a very tough game. I know a lot of Scottish players from the Premier League. They have a very experienced axis. We can't underestimate them."

Nagelsmann on Scotland

"They have a very good team, good physicality and good aggression. Their mentality is excellent. Their players throw everything into every game and have made fantastic progress in recent years. They're not a classic kick-and-rush team anymore."

Nagelsmann talks nerves

"We're ready, we used the days after the Greece game well and have trained well. There's some nervousness, but that's good. We need that basic level of tension and are really excited about tomorrow evening."
camera-photo

13 June: Say cheese!

Are these the faces of the 26 men, plus backroom staff, who are going to make a nation very happy this summer?

13 June: Heading to Munich

With a little over 24 hours to go until the opening game, Germany will hold their final training session in Herzogenaurach at 11am, where they will also have their official squad photo taken. The squad will later make the 180 kilometre bus journey south to the town of Unterschleißheim on the outskirts of Munich, where they will stay the night. Coach Nagelsmann and captain Gündoğan will then speak at the pre-match press conference at the Allianz Arena from 6.45pm. We'll keep you up to date with everything that happens throughout the day...

12 June: Musiala on Nagelsmann's expectations of them

"We shouldn't die looking to play beautiful but look to dribble at the right moments. Over the years, we've built up a good feeling for when we can dribble and when we can just play. Obviously, we should also track back and look to counter-press."

12 June: Wirtz on the approach to playing

"I don't think Jamal and I are that predictable. We have a lot of ideas in our game and have trained a lot to have solutions ready, no matter what the opponent does. Jamal and I are players who look for solutions and aren't so easy to figure out."
camera-photo

12 June: Wirtz on comparisons with Podolski and Schweinsteiger

"Obviously they're also idols from the past, and it's nice to be compared to players who had such a career for Germany. But we don't want to put ourselves in the role of being the new Podolski and Schweinsteiger, but it's still an honour when others compare us to them. We are different types of players and want to show our qualities on the pitch."

12 June: Kits confirmed for group games

The DFB have announced that Germany will make use of both their new kits across their three group games. The hosts will play in their white home strip against Scotland in Munich on Friday, before donning their pink/lilac away number in Stuttgart against Hungary. They will then go back to the home kit against Switzerland in Frankfurt.

11 June: Thomas Müller, Germany's secret weapon against Scotland?

The veteran Bayern attacker is Germany's all-time leading scorer against the Tartan Army, having found the net four times against them over the years. The goals came in two Euro 2016 qualifiers in 2014 and 2015.

11 June: Pavlović doubtful

Bayern Munich midfielder Aleksandar Pavlović is currently Germany's only doubt ahead of Friday's Euro 2024 opener against Scotland. After the players enjoyed a free weekend, he was the only member of the squad not to return to the team's headquarters on Monday, due to illness.
camera-photo

11 June: Kroos on Friday's opener against Scotland

"The first game is very, very important, sometimes decisive. The last few tournaments have shown that in negative terms. The last tournament in which we won the opening game was in 2016. The Scotland game is important, but not decisive. It would be nice for the mood here and in the country if we were to do well in the opening game. We know what kind of opponent we're up against. They can be awkward, are physically strong, defend compactly and play good counter-attacks. We've been warned. Scotland are the type of opponent that Germany have found very difficult in recent years. Nobody needs to make us aware that it will be a very, very difficult opening game. I want the tournament to get under way. We've prepared ourselves, we've discussed it. We're looking forward to it. We're very well prepared for Friday. That's the prerequisite for playing a good game."

11 June: Kroos on starlets Wirtz and Musiala

"Flo and Jamal are very, very difficult to tackle, outstanding one-on-one. They are players you doubt as a defender. I think there are few limits for both of them - if they stay healthy and develop the mentality of wanting to win everything and perform consistently. It's only world class when you do that over 10 years. Both have everything they need to play at the top for 10 or 15 years. And I'm not just talking about footballing ability, but also attitude and mentality."

11 June: Kroos talks Germany chances

Speaking at Tuesday's press conference, the returning-but-soon-to-retire Toni Kroos talked about his team's chances this summer: "When you see the quality in our squad, you know what's possible. We've also shown flashes of that in the last few games. That makes you feel positive. But we can also see that there is room for improvement in certain phases of the game. There's no better way to show that we can play well than at a tournament. It's inevitable that we'll have to minimise the phases in which things don't work so well, because we're up against teams, especially when it comes to the knockout rounds, who can knock you out of the tournament with one move. Then the tournament is over quicker than we'd like. We need to be a bit more consistent. There's still room for improvement. You don't have to fly straight away and count us among the favourites. But we know that we have potential and that we are capable of beating any team."

10 June: 4,000 fans watch training

"Thank you very much for this wonderful reception," shouted sporting director Rudi Völler to the crowd of around 4,000 that welcomed Julian Nagelsmann's team with applause as they appeared for training on Monday. The only player missing from the session was Aleks Pavlović, while Nuremberg's Jan Reichert was involved as the fourth goalkeeper to help make up the numbers after Alexander Nübel was cut from the final squad.
camera-photo

10 June: Füllkrug primed for finals

Niclas Füllkrug is set to start the tournament as Germany's second-choice striker, but that hasn't dampened his excitement ahead of his second major finals. "You have to accept the role you're given within the team," the Borussia Dortmund No.9 told media on Monday. "I think it's important to be completely honest in these conversations with the head coach. We're all footballers who have grown up very competitive, but it's vital that we recognise the bigger picture here and the responsibilities we all need to fulfil. Of course, everyone wants to play, but Kai [Havertz] now has my full backing. We both had strong seasons where we proved ourselves against world-class defenders. I think this puts the national team in great stead ahead of the tournament – none of the teams are particularly excited to come up against our attack."

10 June: Nagelsmann stands by Neuer

Julian Nagelsmann has said that Manuel Neuer, who made his first international appearances in 18 months in the past week, remains his first-choice goalkeeper for Euro 2024. "I have every faith in him," said the Germany coach. You can see his best saves in the past Bundesliga season in the video above...

9 June: Group A opponents fine-tune

Switzerland and Hungary were in action over the weekend. The Swiss drew 1-1 with Austria thanks to Mainz's Silvan Widmer leveling after Christoph Baumgartner of Leipzig had put their neighbouring land ahead. Hungary beat Israel 3-0 with Freiburg's Roland Sallai opening the scoring.

8 June: Nuremberg goalkeeper to train with Germany

Head coach Julian Nagelsmann was initially set on having four goalkeepers in his final 26-man tournament squad in order to facilitate training matches, before opting to take an extra outfield player instead of Stuttgart’s Alexander Nübel. However, the tactician remains keen on having four keepers on the training pitch, so has invited Nuremberg custodian Jan Reichert to participate with his squad, given the proximity between the Bavarian city and Germany’s headquarters in Herzogenaurach. Reichert, 22, made one Bundesliga 2 appearance for Nuremberg in 2023/24, in his side’s 4-1 defeat by Hamburg on Matchday 34, and will join up with the Germany squad on Monday.

1 Neuer, 2 Rüdiger, 3 Raum, 4 Tah, 5 Groß, 6 Kimmich, 7 Havertz, 8 Kroos, 9 Füllkrug, 10 Musiala, 11 Führich, 12 Baumann, 13 Müller, 14 Beier, 15 Schlotterbeck, 16 Anton, 17 Wirtz, 18 Mittelstädt, 19 Sané, 20 Henrichs, 21 Gündoğan, 22 ter Stegen, 23 Andrich, 24 Koch, 25 Pavlović, 26 Undav

8 June: Germany's opening opponents draw

The tournament hosts kick off Euro 2024 against Scotland on Friday and while Germany enjoyed a late 2-1 win against Greece in their final warm-up game, the Scots were held to a 2-2 draw by Finland. Steve Clarke's side took a 2-0 lead after the break at Hampden Park, an own goal and a Lawrence Shankland strike cheering the home fans. Finland fought back in the final 18 minutes to snatch a draw, however.

8 June: Gündoğan - "Our senses are sharpened"

Germany captain İlkay Gündoğan said he admired his side's ability to reverse their fortunes in the final friendly against Greece before Euro 2024 gets underway. "What was important was that we showed we had the ability to respond," the 33-year-old said after Germany's 2-1 win. "We'll start the European Championships with a good feeling. We'll (also) need the support of the fans, who will push us," the midfielder continued. "We still have a week left; our senses are sharpened and we want to keep the momentum going."

7 June: Germany 2-1 Greece

Pascal Groß struck a last-minute winner as Germany came from behind to beat Greece at Borussia-Park in their final friendly ahead of Euro 2024. The visitors began brightly and took the lead in the first half, but Kai Havertz restored parity shortly after the interval, before Groß thundered in a brilliant winner - his first for Germany - to give Nagelsmann's side a morale-boosting result ahead of next week's tournament opener against Scotland.

7 June: Nagelsmann on his decision not to take Nübel

“It’s not a reflection of Alex’s performances. He integrated himself very well and performed well in training. When I spoke to him to let him know, I made it clear that he has a future in the national team. If a goalkeeper gets injured during the tournament, you can call up another one. You can’t do that with outfield players. Now the squad and the team have been finalised.”

7 June: Germany's final 26-man tournament squad confirmed

Head coach Julian Nagelsmann confirmed before kick-off against Greece that Germany will go into Euro 2024 with Manuel Neuer, Marc-André ter Stegen and Oliver Baumann as goalkeeping options, with Alexander Nübel the player dropped from the provisional roster.

7 June: Last preps in place

Today marks a big day for the German national team. They not only take on Greece in their final friendly before Euro 2024 gets underway on home soil but they will also name their final squad for the competition after that game. A lot to be decided today.
camera-photo

6 June: Who will be cut from the squad?

There are currently 27 players in Nagelsmann's squad, but that needs to be trimmed to 26 by Friday, meaning one player will miss out. And the coach already knows who it will be: "We've already made the decision but we don't want to officially announce it yet, or talk to the players, just so that we are prepared for the worst-case scenario of someone getting injured or something similar. We'll announce the decision after the game."
camera-photo

6 June: Supersub Sané?

The Bayern Munich winger has been struggling with a persistent pelvic injury for the last few weeks and is unlikely to start the friendly against Greece. "He's an option for the game," said Nagelsmann. "He's completed two full training sessions this week, but we can't yet expect him to play the full 90 minutes in every game. He's almost back to 100 per cent." Jamal Musiala, Florian Wirtz and İlkay Gündoğan are therefore set to be Germany's preferred starters in attacking midfield at EURO 2024.
camera-photo

6 June: Havertz to be the main man

One of the questions fans and pundits have been pondering is how Germany will line-up at EURO 2024, particularly up front, with Niclas Füllkrug, Kai Havertz, Thomas Müller and Deniz Undav the leading options . Nagelsmann gave an answer to that - albeit with a caveat: "The hierarchy is clear. When Kai performs, he's a little bit ahead. But he has to perform well. And Fülle will get his playing time."

6 June: Nagelsmann gives insights

Head coach Julian Nagelsmann held a press conference on Thursday ahead of his side's final warm-up game against Greece. And while it is only a friendly, the tactician insisted his players would be going for the win: "The result is always valuable for self-confidence. We want to win. Greece are extremely difficult to predict because they've recently changed coaches. It's a shame because we can't prepare 100 percent and we're expecting a mixed bag."

We need to remain grounded when looking back at the past few years. It's important to get off to a good start in the first game. Then we'll see what happens over the course of the tournament."

Watch: Champions League finalists join squad

Germany were without Champions League winners Toni Kroos and Antonio Rüdiger (Real Madrid), as well as Borussia Dortmund's runner-up pairing of Nico Schlotterbeck and Niclas Füllkrug for the game against Ukraine. Those four are now with the squad, though, which will need to be reduced by at least one player before the tournament's start.

Germany 0-0 Ukraine

The first of two Euro 2024 warm-up matches for Germany ended in a 0-0 draw with Ukraine this week, despite the hosts having 26 shots on goal. Maximilian Beier was particularly impressive in a strong second half from Germany in Nuremberg, with their final match before the tournament proper taking place against Greece in Mönchengladbach on Friday (kick-off: 8.45pm CEST).

Speaking after the Ukraine draw, Nagelsmann said: "After a long season, we threw everything into it... the most important indicator is that I want to see a team that wants to win. Today we wanted to win. We showed that."
