Germany coach Joachim Low still says "nothing has changed." Also, he is inflexible on his idea for not choosing Thomas Muller, Jerome Boateng and Mats Hummels. He disqualifies the players.
These players are sent to the international wilderness in March 2019 by Low when he was trying to build up the promising future after Germany’s fall at the 2018 World Cup.
Unlike their defence, Germany have been approved as qualified for Euro 2020 conceding seven goals in their last three competitions. This lead to call-ups for Boateng and Hummels to be reconsidered.
"We basically decided not to pick these players, nothing has changed that now," Low told Kicker.
"If a completely new situation arises for us next year due to the failure of key players, I will evaluate it accordingly and think about alternative scenarios."
Oliver Bierhoff forced the country to join and get behind Die Mannschaft again. He is the national team manager of the German Football Association.
On Wednesday, Germany host the Czech Republic before Nations League battle against Ukraine and Spain.
Ex-Germany striker Bierhoff said: "We are no longer Germany's favourite child but the national team is still Germany's most important football team. Support and a positive spirit would help the boys."
He added: "You have to be honest - when it comes to money and fame none of the players really need the national team.
"The boys earn a lot of money, but they are also people. It hurts that we no longer support and honor them. The boys really deserve our trust. The players want to be closer to the fans."
