Germany's Serge Gnabry: "I want to score a goal in every game"

Bayern Munich's Serge Gnabry is aiming to fill his boots for Germany at this summer's UEFA Euro 2020.

The tournament is the 25-year-old's first at senior level for Die Mannschaft after missing the 2018 FIFA World Cup through injury, and he's looking to build on his impressive record of 15 goals in 20 appearances for his country when unleashed on the international stage this summer.

"I want to score a goal in every game. That wouldn't be bad," Gnabry told journalists at a press conference from Germany's training camp in Seefeld when asked of his intentions for the Euros, which start for the three-time European champions at Munich's Allianz Arena against world champions France on 15 June.

The former VfB Stuttgart, Arsenal, Werder Bremen and Hoffenheim forward is likely to be the focal point in attack for Joachim Löw's side and expressed his desire to improve on - what he considers - a less satisfactory scoring campaign in 2020/21 with 10 Bundesliga goals.

"I want to score goals. I didn't quite manage that like I'd imagined with Bayern last season, but this is a different stage, a different team," Gnabry added. "We've got no [Robert] Lewandowski or [Erling] Haaland in our team, but we have massive quality up front and on the wings."

That quality comes in the shape of club teammates Leroy Sane, Jamal Musiala and Thomas Müller - returning to the Germany setup for the first time since the 2018 World Cup and in fact also seeking his first European Championship goal - as well as UEFA Champions League winners Kai Havertz and Timo Werner.

Die Mannschaft's remaining group games, again both at the Allianz Arena, are against holders Portugal (19 June) and then Hungary (23 June) as they look to progress from a difficult Group F in search of a first continental title since 1996, when the final of the Euros was last played at Wembley.
