Originally, Kuntz decided for 21 players who belong to the vintages 2000 to 2004 to tackle the upcoming qualifiers for EM 2023 in Romania and Georgia. Whether all can contribute, but is not fixed yet. Two players still have to undergo a MRI study on Monday. Only then will it be decided whether to travel to the countries of the U 21. Who is that exactly, the DFB did not join. For this reason, too, Kuntz has nominated a talent as a precaution: Kilian Ludewig (21) RB Salzburg may hope for his debut. Besides him, Keeper Nico Mantl was another Salzburg hope for the first time for the German U 21.
