Bayern Munich's Jamal Musiala and Bayer Leverkusen's Florian Wirtz named in Germany squad for first time

Bayern Munich's Jamal Musiala and Bayer Leverkusen's Florian Wirtz have been named in Joachim Löw's Germany squad for their three 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying matches to be played in March.

Teenagers Musiala (18), Wirtz (17) could become two of the youngest players in Germany's history later this month after being named in the senior squad for the first time.

Stuttgart-born Musiala only announced his decision to represent Germany internationally at the beginning of March, opting for the four-time World Cup winners ahead of England.

Wirtz, meanwhile, has represented Germany at youth level 13 times, most recently making three appearances for the U21s.

Watch: Bundesliga Young Guns - Musiala, Wirtz and the next generation

Musiala and Wirtz are part of a 26-man squad which will face Iceland, Romania and North Macedonia in the first three World Cup qualifiers for the 2022 tournament in Qatar.

Should Wirtz play in the opening qualification game against Iceland, he will become the third-youngest Germany international behind Marius Hiller (17 years, 239 days) and Willy Baumgartner (17 years, 102 days) who made their debuts in 1910 and 1908 respectively.

A debut in the same game for Musiala would see the midfielder become the fourth-youngest international in Germany's history, just behind the legendary Uwe Seeler.
