Manuel Neuer and Toni Kroos could each attend their fourth European Championships after being named in host nation Germany’s provisional Euro 2024 squad.

Midfielder Kroos, 34, announced his international retirement in July 2021 but reversed the decision in March following talks with head coach Julian Nagelsmann.

Goalkeeper Neuer, 38, has not played for his country since 2022, after breaking his leg following the Qatar World Cup.

Bayern Munich duo Leon Goretzka and Serge Gnabry miss out while Tottenham striker Timo Werner is absent with a hamstring injury.

Mats Hummels and Julian Brandt have been key figures in Borussia Dortmund’s run to the Champions League final but are omitted from the 27-man squad, which will be reduced to 26 after Germany’s friendly matches against Ukraine and Greece in June.

Fulham goalkeeper Bernd Leno is included along with former Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan, Chelsea forward Kai Havertz and Brighton midfielder Pascal Gross.

Germany were eliminated at the group stage of the past two World Cups and in the last 16 at Euro 2020, but go into this summer’s tournament as one of the favourites.

The 2014 World Cup winners begin their campaign on 14 June against Scotland in Munich.
