Rudi Voller, speaking at a news conference ahead of Germany’s short training camp in Thuringia, expressed confidence in the team’s progress under coach Julian Nagelsmann.

Voller highlighted two friendly matches in March as a pivotal moment in their development, where convincing wins signaled a turning point in the team’s performance and morale.

Sitting beside Nagelsmann, Voller tempered his optimism, stating, “We don’t need to get carried away, but we should maintain a positive outlook.”

Germany, the three-time European champions, have endured a drought in international tournaments since their 2014 World Cup victory. They are eager to make a strong comeback and impress their home fans.

Their recent track record includes early exits from the World Cup and a disappointing round-of-16 finish in the 2021 European Championship. However, Voller believes that with their home-field advantage, the team has the potential to go all the way to Berlin for the final.

The preliminary squad for their first training camp is not yet complete, with players from domestic double winners Bayer Leverkusen expected to join in the coming days. The Champions League finalists from Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund will also be late arrivals, reporting for duty next week.

Voller and German FA President Bernd Neuendorf have their sights set on the title, and Nagelsmann assures that the team aims to thrill fans with exciting football. “We want to play entertaining football and give fans their money’s worth,” he said.

Germany kicks off their campaign on June 14 against Scotland and will also face Hungary and Switzerland in Group A. Before the tournament, they have two friendly matches scheduled, against Ukraine and Greece, to fine-tune their performance.

More than 15,000 fans are anticipated to attend their first open training session, showcasing the team’s popularity and the nation’s enthusiasm for the upcoming tournament.
