Niclas Füllkrug talks about being nominated for DFB games

What changes did national coach Julian Nagelsmann make in the first international matches of the European Championship year? Niclas Füllkrug is also excited about this.

Borussia Dortmund’s national player Niclas Füllkrug is also looking forward to his first international nomination by national coach Julian Nagelsmann in the European Championship year next Thursday.

“Nobody should feel too safe in this squad. I think it’s really cool to have such a competitive situation. That the boys all really want to prove themselves in order to play in the national team. That’s going to be important.” said the 31-year-old after BVB’s 2-1 away win at his former club Werder Bremen on Saturday evening.

Füllkrug has been placed as a center forward under Nagelsmann, all other Dortmund national players have to worry about their place in the squad for the home European Championship, said Sky expert Lothar Matthäus: “At the moment I would say that Niclas is the safest player from Borussia Dortmund who will be there .”

Füllkrug did not want to demand that Mats Hummels, Emre Can, Julian Brandt, Niklas Süle or Nico Schlotterbeck should also be nominated for the international matches on March 23rd in France and three days later against the Netherlands. “I don’t want to comment on that at all,” said Füllkrug: “I know that they all have their quality, that they are now gradually getting more and more into shape, and in the end it is up to them to be an option for the European Championships to be.”
