Gnabry during final training – 24 players on the field – dpa

hEducatedaurach (dpa) – Serge Gnabry has managed to take part in the team coaching of the national football team in time for the European Championship duel against Portugal.

On Friday, the striker from Bayern Munich was in his last training session under national coach Joachim Loew before leaving for Munich at the Ade Dassler Arena in Herzogenaurach.

The day before, the 25-year-old was only able to complete individual stress management training. Now a support bar on the left knee indicates potential problems in the Gnabrys. Nothing seems to stand in the way of the striker’s publication on Saturday (6pm/ARD and Magenta TV).

Klostermann and Hoffmann are missing

Thus, Low had 24 players on the field again during his last training session in the heat. As expected, Lukas Klostermann from Leipzig was not there, and he is currently with a torn muscle fiber. Jonas Hoffmann was only able to continue training individually due to a knee injury. This time, Löw moved the final training from the EM Arena in Munich to the team’s quarters in Herzogenaurach.

The German Football Association is already under pressure in the second championship match after initially 0:1 against France. Another defeat could worsen the situation ahead of the group final against Hungary on Wednesday.

Love announced that he wanted to work specifically on the penetrating power of the attack. In the evening (7.45 pm), national coach Joshua Kimmich will comment on the match against Portugal at the UEFA press conference after the bus travels to Munich.

Possible lineups:

Portugal: 1 Rui Patricio – 2 Nelson Semedo, 3 Pepe, 4 Robin Dias, 5 Rafael Guerrero – 13 Danilo Pereira, 14 William Carvalho – 11 Bruno Fernandez – 10 Bernardo Silva, 7 Cristiano Ronaldo, 21 Diego Jota

Germany: 1 Neuer – 4 Ginter, 5 Hummels, 2 Rüdiger – 6 Kimmich, 21 Gündogan, 8 Kroos, 20 Gosens – 7 Havertz, 10 Gnabry, 25 Müller

Referee: Anthony Taylor (England)
