Nico Schlotterbeck is set to be included in the Germany squad for this summer's European Championship on the back of his strong performances for Borussia Dortmund.

Eight months on from his last appearance for the Germany national team, Nico Schlotterbeck is set to make his return to the DFB squad. As first revealed by Tagesschau and later confirmed by the DFB, the Borussia Dortmund centre-back will be included in the Germany squad for the European Championship this summer.

The Germany call-up is a well-deserved reward for Schlotterbeck, who has been one of Borussia Dortmund's most consistent performers since the turn of the year. The 24 year old has played a key role in BVB's run to the Champions League final, and will now head to the DFB camp after the crunch clash against Real Madrid at Wembley Stadium on June 1.

Julian Nagelsmann had decided against calling up Schlotterbeck since taking over in October, citing his proneness for making errors. But now the defender is back in the Germany squad as they look to win Euro 2024 on home soil.

The provisional Germany squad will be named on Thursday, and it will be interesting to see which Borussia Dortmund players make the cut. Niclas Füllkrug is set to be included, while the likes of Mats Hummels, Julian Brandt, and Karim Adeyemi will also hope to get called up for the European Championship.

Germany will begin their Euro 2024 campaign against Scotland on June 14. They will also face Hungary and Switzerland during the group stage.
