Kai Havertz keeps place in Germany squad for UEFA Euro 2020 qualifiers against Belarus and Estonia

Bayer Leverkusen teenager Kai Havertz has been rewarded for his record-breaking season in the Bundesliga with another Germany call-up - this time for the June UEFA Euro 2020 qualifiers against Belarus and Estonia.

Havertz, 19, recently became the youngest player in history to reach 17 Bundesliga goals in a single season, orchestrating Leverkusen's successful late push for a top-four finish. It was another significant milestone in the career of one of Germany's most gifted midfielders, who only made his senior international debut in last September's friendly draw with Peru.

The Leverkusen talent provided an assist on his first start in his country's 3-0 friendly win over Russia 3-0 in the autumn and earned his third international cap in the March draw with Serbia, but he was an unused substitute as Joachim Löw's side kicked off their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign with a dramatic 3-2 win away to Group C rivals the Netherlands.

New Borussia Dortmund signing Nico Schulz, who scored the winning goal in Amsterdam, is also involved. The 26-year-old left-back is one of two BVB players in the squad, alongside Marco Reus.

First-choice goalkeeper and captain Manuel Neuer receives "a provisional call-up", after missing the last five matches of Bayern Munich's Bundesliga title-winning season with a calf injury.

RB Leipzig defender Lukas Klostermann retains his place, having made his debut against Serbia, while Cologne captain Jonas Hector returns to the fold after helping steer his club back into the Bundesliga at the first attempt, as Bundesliga 2 champions.

Germany sit third in Euro 2020 qualifying Group C following their campaign-opening win against the Netherlands, albeit having played a game less than the Oranje and leaders Northern Ireland.

Die Mannschaft take on Belarus in Borisov on 8 June, before hosting Estonia in Mainz three days later.
