Ahead of Euro 2020 set to kick off this Friday, we take a look at some of the most glaring omissions from this summer’s squads, from Bundesliga outfits only.
Roman Burki and Marwin Hitz, Borussia Dortmund were in desperate need of a stable set of hands in goal. Marco Rose will be hoping that 23 year-old Swiss international Gregor Kobel will be that man, and bring the same level of success and durability the club enjoyed during Roman Weidenfeller’s 16 year spell at the club.
In a move that appeared to be inevitable for months, Borussia Dortmund have now officially secured the signature of VFB Stuttgart goalkeeper Gregor Kobel. The 23-year-old signs a five-year-contract with the Black & Yellows, for a fee reported to be around €15 million.

One of the best forwards to ever play the game, Robert Lewandowski has had a career that many could only ever dream of. But the Polish striker’s career could have been very different had he signed for Blackburn Rovers as planned back in 2010. Luckily for Borussia Dortmund and Bundesliga fans alike, a volcano changed his fortunes around.
After a rocky season, Borussia Dortmund have finished strong and finished in style, officially securing top four this Sunday with a win over FSV Mainz 05. The win earns the Black & Yellows a place in next season’s UEFA Champions League, just days after they won the DFB Pokal over RB Leipzig.
After the majestic performance in the DFB Pokal final against RB Leipzig, Dortmund CEO Hans Joachim Watzke announced that only a few days prior to the match, Edin Terzić signed a new contract with the club. With the appointment of Gladbach’s Marco Rose for next season, Terzić was not expected to stay, and many top-tier teams had their eyes on the 38-year-old manager. Luckily for Dortmund fans and players alike, it appears the German manager is perfectly happy to return to his role as the assistant once the season comes to an end. Despite that, several Bundesliga clubs will be keeping a close eye on the 38-year-old, after his triumphant cup win.
Although Bayern Munich won the UEFA Champions League in 2019-20, the days of Bayern and Dortmund squaring up in a European final as they did in 2013 appear to be over. This past year Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund were both knocked out of the UEFA Champions League in the quarter-finals, with Leipzig failing to make it past the Round of 16. So if Germany wants to get themselves onto the level of England and Spain, what needs to change?
