Ter Stegen called up for Germany, but will he play?
- Marc-Andre has been called up for Germany's upcoming matches against the Netherlands and Northern Ireland.
- The 27-year-old is yet to become the first-choice shot-stopper for the first team.
The international break starts next week and Barcelona are already sweating over their players' fitness. Given their current injury crisis, the Catalans would totally hate to lose another key player to an unfortunate injury, especially one so important as Marc-Andre ter Stegen.
The 27-year-old has been included in Joachim Low's 23-man squad for the upcoming two Euro qualifications matches. The Germans are set to take on the Netherlands and Northern Ireland on September 6 and September 9 respectively.
However, it's unclear how many chances our shot-stopper will have to actually play a single minute for the national team. Despite his impressive form for Blaugrana, he is yet to become the undisputed starting goalkeeper for Die Mannschaft.
Currently, Marc-Andre has registered only 22 appearances for Germany's senior team. However, he has played 49 games in total for Germany's youth teams (from U16 to U21). Currently, Bayern Munich's Manuel Neuer is still the Low's first choice despite his not-so-good displays at last summer's World Cup as well as his most recent injuries.
Currently, Germany sit in second position with 9 points, 3 points behind Northern Ireland.
Do you think Ter Stegen is currently better than Neuer?
