The leap between too good for us vs good enough for Germany is huge. He can posture and hope. He's probably good enough for their youth teams but senior national is a whole other kettle of fish. He's 17 and just getting his first start in the 3.Liga. The sheer number of German centerbacks starting in the Bundesliga who are in front of him is staggering. Especially since German fans would tell you 98% of them aren't good enough for the national team anyway.
