Liverpool's midfielder spurred on by German squad competition

10 Nov 2017, 20:30

Midfielder Emre Can believes the high number of talented players eligible for the German national team is keeping the squad sharp ahead of the 2018 World Cup.

Can, who has 18 caps for Germany, was part of the team that won the Confederations Cup this year and is competing with established players like Toni Kroos and Sami Khedira, who were in the 2014 World Cup-winning squad.

The 23-year-old Liverpool player also has to compete with Germany’s youngsters including a host of players from the Under-21 squad that won this year’s Under-21 European Championship.

-The competition for places helps because you always have to be ready, always giving 100 percent,” Can said.

Germany plays England in a friendly later on Friday and France on Tuesday.
