Ghana loses Bellarabi to Germany, as Loew invites him for Euro matches

first_imgGerman born Ghanaian Karim Bellarabi has been invited by Brazil 2014 winning  German coach Joachim Loew for the upcoming European Championship qualifying matches against Poland and Ireland.The Bayer Leverkusen attacking midfielder was born in Berlin but was also eligible to play for Ghana and Morocco because his father is a Ghanaian and his mother a Moroccan.Efforts by the Ghana FA to lure the youngster proved futile over the years and if he gets to play any of the lineup matches he then cements his nationality as a German.Bellarabi is enjoying a breakthrough season and Loew says he is an “excellent option for our attack.”Defender Mats Hummels returns, along with 15 other players who won the World Cup title in Brazil.Bastian Schweinsteiger, Sami Khedira, Benedikt Hoewedes, Marco Reus and Mario Gomez are all out with injuries and Kevin Grosskreutz was dropped. Max Kruse of Borussia Moenchengladbach returns to join Bayern Munich’s Mario Goetze as one of the two strikers nominated.Germany plays in Warsaw on Oct. 11 and hosts Ireland three days later in Gelsenkirchen.Germany squad to face Poland on October 11 and Republic of Ireland on October 14:Goalkeepers: Manuel Neuer (Bayern Munich), Roman Weidenfeller (Borussia Dortmund), Ron-Robert Zieler (Hannover)Defenders: Jerome Boateng (Bayern Munich), Erik Durm (Borussia Dortmund), Matthias Ginter (Borussia Dortmund), Mats Hummels (Borussia Dortmund), Shkodran Mustafi (Valencia), Antonio Rudiger (Stuttgart), Sebastian Rudy (Hoffenheim) Midfielders: Karim Bellarabi (Bayer Leverkusen), Julian Draxler (Schalke), Toni Kroos (Real Madrid), Christoph Kramer (Borussia Monchengladbach), Thomas Muller (Bayern Munich), Mesut Ozil (Arsenal), Lukas Podolski (Arsenal), Andre Schurrle (Chelsea)Forwards: Mario Gotze (Bayern Munich), Max Kruse (Borussia Monchengladbach)last_img read more
