Germany defender Jonathan Tah admits that Joachim Low’s decision to not include him in the final 23-man squad for Germany has been hard for him to accept, but he has wished his teammates the best for the World Cup
The 22-year-old joins fellow young star Leroy Sane in being omitted from Germany’s World Cup.
Bayern Munich defenders Jérôme Boateng, Mats Hummels, Niklas Süle and Joshua Kimmich were selected over Tah.
The Bayer Leverkusen player made his debut for Die Mannschaft in March 2016 in a friendly against England, but has only earned two more caps since and has frequently been used in the youth teams instead.
Tah, who is widely regarded as the successor to Jérôme Boateng in Germany, nevertheless took the disappointing news well.
“Of course it’s hard for me & I’m disappointed not to go. The World Cup is a dream for every footballer. I still enjoyed every second of the training camp & I just take the positives with me! I wish you all a great tournament !! Get the title back” he wrote on Twitter.
Natürlich ist es hart für mich & ich bin enttäuscht, nicht mit zu fahren. Die WM ist für jeden Fussballer ein Traum. Habe trotzdem jede Sekunde im Camp genossen & nehme nur das Positive mit! wünsche allen von Herzen ein super Turnier!! Holt den Titel wieder nach D???????? pic.twitter.com/FEEEbXfPcj
