Mario Gotze Has Been Recalled To The Germany Squad

Mario Gotze Has Been Recalled To The Germany Squad

Mario Gotze has been recalled to the Germany national team for upcoming games against England and France.

The Borussia Dortmund star has been absent from the Die Mannschaft squad for almost a year because of a rare metabolic illness.

At the start of this year, Gotze was sidelined after being diagnosed with myopathy - a rare muscle disorder which is predominantly why the World Cup winning midfielder struggled for fitness, in the 2016/17 campaign, where he made just 16 appearances and had an underwhelming tally of two goals and two assists.

But he returned to full fitness for pre-season in July and after getting back to 100 per cent, has gone on to make 11 appearances in all competitions for Dortmund.

The last time the duo played for Joachim Low was in a 0-0 draw against Italy on November 15 2016. Gotze has been capped 62 times by Germany, scoring 17 times. His most important goal was undoubtedly the dramatic winner against Argentina to win the World Cup in 2014.

Seeing Gotze back in the Germany squad is absolutely brilliant. Here's the squad in full:

Goalkeepers: Kevin Trapp; Bernd Leno; Marc-Andre ter Stegen.
