This Saturday evening at 8:45 pm, Germany will host Turkey before going to Austria on November 21st. While the Mannschaft is obviously qualified for the Euro 2024 which they will be hosting, these two matches remain important for Julian Nagelsmann’s new team. Especially for Marc-André ter Stegen who hoped to gain points before the return of Manuel Neuer at 100%.
Unfortunately, the FC Barcelona goalkeeper will miss the next two games due to a back injury. A minor injury, but one that comes at the worst possible time for someone who will have to fight hard with Manuel Neuer to keep the German goal at the next Euro. It is Nagelsmann himself who confirmed the absence of ter Stegen on Sky Sports, while the Bayern Munich goalkeeper is still a bit short. A real stroke of bad luck for the 31-year-old player who finally had the opportunity to shine with his country.
Ter Stegen’s absence is a blow to the German national team, as he is one of the best goalkeepers in the world. He has been a key player for Barcelona for years, and his performances in La Liga and the Champions League have been outstanding. He is known for his excellent reflexes, agility and ability to make crucial saves at important moments. His absence will be felt by the German team, who will have to rely on other players to fill the void.
For ter Stegen, this injury is a setback as he was hoping to prove himself to Nagelsmann and secure his place in the starting lineup for the Euro. He has been in excellent form for Barcelona this season, and his absence from the German team will be a disappointment for him. However, he will have to focus on his recovery and come back stronger for his club and country.
