Golden trio lead Germany’s push for Euro glory


Share post:

With a combined age of 106, Germany’s three remaining 2014 World Cup-winners Manuel Neuer, Thomas Mueller and Toni Kroos are leading the hosts’ charge for 
Euro 2024 glory. 

Friends off the pitch, Neuer, Mueller and Kroos are the only players in the 26-man squad to have each played over 100 games for Germany. But not only are they the most experienced members of the squad, they can also remember a time when Germany were on top of the football world. Since a semi-final elimination to France at Euro 2016, the Germans have struggled in major tournaments, with two World Cup group stage exits bookending a last 16 elimination by England at Euro 2020.

Speaking on Monday, Neuer said the trio “bring a very good perspective” to the squad.

“We’ve already experienced a lot together. We’ve had times with good or bad first games and at the beginning you don’t always know where you stand.” Neuer said they would make sure Germany “keep our feet on the ground” despite blowing Scotland off the park.
