BERLIN (AP) — Thomas Müller and Mats Hummels were recalled by Germany coach Joachim Löw on Wednesday for the European Championship.
Löw had dropped both players as part of his shakeup following the disappointing early exit from the 2018 World Cup, but the team failed to shine in their absence and the coach hopes their return will provide a boost for Euro 2020.
The 31-year-old Müller, who hasn’t played for Germany since Nov. 19, 2018, scored 11 goals and set up 21 more to help Bayern Munich win its ninth straight Bundesliga title this season. It was Müller’s 10th league title.
Hummels, 32, has marshalled Borussia Dortmund’s defense to help it win the German Cup and qualify for the Champions League.
