Low: Gotze has ‘all the qualities’ to force Germany return before World cup

Mario Gotze has all the qualities to return to the Germany squad ahead of the World Cup in Qatar, according to former Die Mannschaft coach Joachim Low.

Gotze has won 63 caps for his country and scored an extra-time winner against Argentina in the 2014 World Cup final as Germany lifted the trophy for the fourth time.

The creative midfielder has not appeared for the national side since November 2017.

Though, when he appeared as a second-half substitute in a friendly against France.

That is due to a lack of club success for the former Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich star.

He has traded PSV for Eintracht Frankfurt in a reported € 4 million move to the Europa League winners.

Appearing in the Champions League for Eintracht, alongside returning to the Bundesliga.

The 30-year-old will be hopeful of making his way back into the fold for Germany.

Low, who guided Germany to that World Cup triumph in the crowning achievement of his 15-year tenure, says Gotze has the talent to earn a place in Hansi Flick’s Die Mannschaft team before the 2022 tournament in Qatar in November.

Low told Sky in Germany:

“He has all the qualities for it.

“He will play in the Champions League again, he is the focus here in the Bundesliga and wants to impress for the World Cup.”

Gotze scored 12 goals and added 11 assists across all competitions for PSV in the 2021-22 season, playing in 52 games, with reports linking him to Serie A champions Milan.

Eintracht swooped in as Oliver Glasner looked to bolster his squad to compete in Europe.

But the German international’s arrival came as a surprise to Low.

“Of course, I didn’t expect Mario to return to Germany, not at this point in time,” he added.

“But I’m very happy for Mario and Eintracht. Mario is an exceptional player, very professional and with his great playing intelligence, he fits in very well with Eintracht.”
