Germany have announced their 26-man squad for the upcoming European Championships, and Borussia Dortmund duo Mats Hummels and Emre Can have been included.

Mats Hummels makes his return to the Germany squad two years after being made unavailable for selection by Joachim Löw. The Germany head coach heaped praise on Hummels, and said that the decision to recall him was made with “absolute conviction.”

Hummels has earned 70 caps for the German national team, and helped them win the FIFA World Cup in 2014. The Borussia Dortmund defender will now be aiming to bring some stability to the Germany defence, as they look to make a deep run in the Euros.

Emre Can is the other Borussia Dortmund player in the squad. He has been a regular part of the Germany squad in recent years, and has been used in a variety of different roles.

Marco Reus announced on Tuesday that he will not be taking part in the Euros in order to give his body some time to recover from what has been an exhausting season. While Borussia Dortmund trio Julian Brandt, Nico Schulz and Mahmoud Dahoud have not made the cut.

Thomas Müller has also been recalled by Joachim Löw. And the Germany squad also features former Borussia Dortmund players Ilkay Gündogan and Matthias Ginter.
