Gnabry also talked about the nickname given to Musiala, while also mentioning the recent stick given to Leroy Sane. The Bayern Munich star is looking forward to the clutch game against England and wants to deliver his best.
GNABRY ALL PRAISE FOR MUSIALA
Musiala played for the England U21 team but took the decision to join the German national team after talks with boss joachim Low. He has played 4 times for Germany already, including an impressive substitute performance against Hungary in the group stage of Euro 2020.
Gnabry was full of praise for Musiala’s performance and said that he expected a lot from the teenager. “There is no doubt that his qualities are exceptional. As you could see against Hungary, he can help the team a lot. I am completely convinced of him. His time will come, no matter when.”– said Gnabry.
He also mentioned the nickname Bambi given to Musiala. The Bayern Munich winger said that the name was given by Leroy Sane mainly due to his pleasant nature.
ON SANE AND CHANCES AGAINST ENGLAND
Gnabry also took time to talk about Leroy Sane, who came under lot of criticism for his recent performances. “Things haven’t gone so well yet. But when he gets his chance, he has to take it.– told the German international. He also told that whistling the player was not a good thing.
Germany will face England in a very tough round of 16 matchup in the Euro 2020. England have an upperhand as the game is played in their home stadium of Wembley.
