Joachim Low has recalled Bayern Munich forward Thomas Muller and Borussia Dortmund centre-back Mats Hummels to the Germany squad for the Euro tournament.
The tournament will take place from June 11 to July 11, after being delayed by a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Muller has scored 11 goals and weighed in 18 assists in helping his side win the Bundesliga this season, while Hummels has won the German Cup with Dortmund.
In 2019, Low told the duo that he do not intend to select them again to the national team, but to our surprise, he has gone against his own words.
On the socials, Muller, who’s 31, said “back again”, while Hummels, 32, wrote he was “glad to be back” and “really up for the new chapter”.
Ich bin sehr glücklich und stolz wieder dabei zu sein @DFB_Team

The side succumbed to an embarrassing 6-0 defeat at the expense of Spain in their Nations League back in November 2020.
“You can interrupt an overhaul under the circumstances,” said Low.
“In the defence, we did not have the desired stability. Mats is a player who influences other players and brings experience.”
The 61-year-old mentor will be leaving his post following the tournament this summer.
