Germany announce World Cup 2022 squad with Dortmund wonderkid Youssoufa Moukoko, 17, earning dream call-up

YOU DA MAN GERMANY have named their 26-man World Cup squad – with uncapped teenage star Youssoufa Moukoko earning his first call-up.

The Borussia Dortmund star has been in sensational form this season and has been rewarded by Hansi Flick.

Uncapped Moussoufa Moukoko has been named in the squad.
Marco Reus has once again missed out through injury.

The 17-year-old has scored six goals in 13 Bundesliga games and will link up with the senior squad for the very first time in Qatar.

2014 World Cup winning goalscorer Mario Gotze has also made the cut despite not playing for his country since 2017.

Gotze, who has won 63 caps, has resurrected his career with PSV and Eintracht Frankfurt in the last few seasons and will be on the plane.

But ex-Dortmund teammate Marco Reus has had no such luck.

That’s because the attacker has been left out of the squad due to an ankle injury.

He did make a couple of appearances recently, but he hasn’t started a game since September and has therefore been overlooked by Flick.

Meanwhile, Southampton youngster Armel Bella-Kotchap, who recently made his international debut against England, is also in the 26, as is West Ham man Thilo Kehrer.

Fellow Premier League players Ilkay Gundogan and Kai Havertz are there, but there’s no Timo Werner following a recent ankle injury.
