    Will Emre Can and Jantschke be called up as they deserve?

    This season, Bundesliga havent produced enough talents at our needed positions : fullbacks and strikers.

    Even Jantschke plays mostly at CB for Gladbach nowadays, he is a natural RB in his early career and he is having an encouraging season thus far; Emre Can is playing very well for Liverpool mostly.

    this is my squad for the two games:

    GK) Neuer, Zieler

    RB) Jantschke, Emre Can
    CB) Jereome Boateng, Hummels, Howedes, Mustafi
    LB) Schmelzer, Hector

    DM/CM) Kroos, Schweinsteiger, Kramer, Gundogan, Lars Bender
    AM/Wingers) Mueller, Reus, Oezil, Bellarabi, Goetze, Volland

    Forwards) Max Kruse, Alex Meier

    I would include Badstuber... and Loew already said Podolski will get a chance so I also think Khedira will be included for the same reason.
    Meier is to old ... although he is in great form

    I am from Cologne, but this Podolski thing is getting more and more ridicolous. I know that he is important for the team chemistry, but this can't be an argument. Weidenfeller, Zieler? There are three better goalies nominated in the U-21. Some other quationable nominations. That the U-21 shouldn't be weakened before the EC is no argument for me. Can, Geis, Volland should be with the A-team. I hope that there were talks with Can that he actually is already material for Löw and just stays with the U-21 for the EC-preparation. Turkey is no strong contender right now, but you never know.

    I think Loew will consider Can, Geis, Volland, Leno, Stegen after Euro U21
    And Loew still don't have good replacement for Poldi and Weidenfeller now

    But Jantschke? May be the most deserved RB in the country even he plays mostly at CB, at RB he's still superb

    We all know it's not easy to convince Loew, not like Vincente del Bosque, who like to try new player, and maybe Loew think Mustafi / Hoewedes / Rudy are still better RB than Jantschke / Jung / Sorg

    Would have loved to see Can get a call-up. He is deserving of it, but like marcellsas said, maybe he is waiting u21 tournament is over.

    Is Jantschke much better than Sebastian Jung, Oliver Sorg, Andreas Beck?

    "4CBs + strikerless" combo sometimes works and sometimes doesnt

    But its interesting that Loew didnt even bother to bring in different elements for this team. Max Kruse as a plan B? I dont know whats the difference he can bring to this team. Max Kruse is too simialr too Goetze, Meuller and Reus.

    U need options, someone who can make a difference off the bench. we have one tactic, limited by the personnel

    Badstuber/Howedes/Mustafi as fullbacks will have serious problems in dealing with pacey and skilled wingers.

    If Goetze or Mueller cant make impact as false 9, i have no idea what Max Kruse can bring to this team.



    Conclusion:

    Someone like Jantschke, Beck, Castro and targetmen like Mario Gomez, Alex Meier, Davie Selke or a in-form Lasogga is needed in the team.

    A targetman off the bench allow us to play more direct. As i said, we need options

    Mario Gomez is injured, Selke is prepared for WC U20, Lassoga is out of form, now bench warmer at Hamburg, Meier maybe is too old, not in Loew's long-term plan
    Beck was called up for WC 2010 preparation, but didn't satisfy Loew, like Jung and Sorg
    I don't know about Jantschke and Castro, maybe they are not RB at their club, and Loew think Rudy, Rudiger, Mustafi are better than them

    ------------Bellarabi----------------Kroos-------
    ------Oezil-----------------------------------Reus

    Hector and Noscorerabi? If we stick to the 3-5-2 then Emre Can should be called up for LB.
