what I think is interesting about recent career progress. And I'm NOT talking about camps. Talking about real games. -99 GK Smarsch hasn't been called up by dfb for 2 years now -00 Ngankam hasn't been called up by dfb since 2018, over 2 years ago -00 Keitel hasn't been called up by dfb since U17 WC, 3 years ago. -00 Raschl hasn't been called up by dfb since September 2018, basically 2 years ago. Was never relevant at any point in time anyways. -00 Abouchabaka hasn't been called up since Sept 2018, almost 2 years ago. Moved to upper half of Portuguese 1st division club in Winter, already made debut, got praised by the coach and is a player for future dev at the club. Could get more game time once Europe question is settled. -01 Bozdogan hasn't been called up by dfb since Dec 2018, which was like 1 and a half years ago, fast approaching 2 years. -02 Borkowski hasn't played for dfb since Nov 2017. Almost 3 years ago. -02 Thielmann hasn't played for dfb since Feb 2019, was going to get recalled in March 2020, but that's over 1 full year later. -02 Egloff who Stuttgart rates highly has never been dfb relevant last call up was in 2017, 3 years in 1 U15 friendly. Could see him in 1BL next season. 02 Lemperle was last called up to the yearly Israel tour friendlies in Dec 2019 which calls up mostly lesser known players. Who most never play post that 3 team friendly tourney. But his last legit call up was over a year ago in like Feb 2019. It's why I didn't list him with others. But reason he got called up to Israel was basically to have another look at him type thing. I didn't list players like 01-Thiaw due to him not yet eligible for dfb even if he's born and German produced CB. am I missing anyone? More bizarre is the NUMEROUS instants where dfb is interested in players who aren't even that rated at their clubs. not a criticism post, emphasis on the 1st few words, "interesting". what I think is interesting.... that a lot of these players have been dfb MIA for between 1-3 years is interesting.
