Low axes Bayern trio from Germany squad

Mats Hummels Thomas Muller Jerome Boateng Germany

Germany boss Joachim Low has confirmed that Boateng, along with Bayern Munich teammates Thomas Muller and Mats Hummels, will no longer be considered for worldwide selection.

Saying it was time "to make changes for the future", Low added: "With the Euro 2020 qualifying campaign about to begin, we wanted to make it clear that this is a new start".

Muller made his 100th appearance for Die Mannschaft in their 2-2 Nations League draw with Netherlands in November - a game that Hummels started - while Boateng has not appeared since the 3-0 defeat to Ronald Koeman's side in October.

2014 World Cup winners Jerome Boateng, Mats Hummels and Thomas Mueller are no longer in his plans.

'It was important for me to personally explain my decision to the players and the FC Bayern management'.

Muller's goal scoring record in World Cups left many with the expectation that he would overtake fellow countryman Miroslav Klose as the tournament's all time top scorer but he failed to bag in Russian Federation. We want to give the team a new face.

Germany's next match is a friendly against Serbia in Wolfsburg on 20 March before their first Euro 2020 qualifier against the Netherlands four days later. I'm convinced that that is the correct step.

"They are big players who stand for a big time in the national team".

My thoughts and prayers go out to him and his loved ones". "I pray for them to heal and find peace in this devastating loss". Leslie Grossman, who worked with Perry on the show What I Like About You , shared her own humorous encounter with the actor.

Low won the World Cup with Germany in 2014 and thrashed hosts Brazil by 7-1 in the semi finals en route to their cup glory.

"The young national players will have the space they need to fully develop, and now they have to take responsibility".

Low, who was permitted to stay on despite the World Cup failure and is under contract through 2022, had his decision backed by federation president Reinhard Grindel and DFB director Oliver Bierhoff.

'I am sad about this news because it has always been the greatest thing for me to represent my country. Nevertheless, I respect the new course and understand the decision of the national coach.

'I was always extremely proud to wear the national team top and I will never forget the summer of 2014.

"They have spent countless years for Germany and the national team. But I would have obviously wished for a different departure". I was once young myself and depended on older players making room for me.
