Has the German Football Association lost the battle for Bayern talent Jamal Musiala? As the “BILD Zeitung” reports, the 17-year-old youngster tends to play for the English national team in the future.
Just a few days ago, Serge Gnabry emphasized in an interview with the Daily Mail that “such a talent will not be let go” and that he personally will give everything to ensure that Musiala plays for the DFB team. Oliver Bierhoff had also recently stressed that they are intensively looking at the attacking midfielder. However, it seems that the DFB has bad cards in the Musiala poker.
DFB efforts have all been unsuccessful so far
In October 2018, Musiala played two international matches for the German U16. However he decided to play for England again. In November last year, the Bayern youngster made his debut for the Three Lions’ U21s. According to rumors, Gareth Southgate could already nominate Musiala for the senior national team in March.
According to the German “BILD Zeitung”, the 17-year-old has not yet made a final decision, but the trend is clearly toward England. However, it is clear that as long as he has not played a senior international match for England, there is still a chance that the Stuttgart native can still play for Germany.
