One goes, one stays: Luis Hartwig has been called up by DFB U20 coach Christian Wörns for the international matches against Italy (March 24 in Ascoli Piceno) and England (March 29 in Colchester). For the VfL Bochum 1848 attacker, it is his first U20 call up. To date, Hartwig has played two U19 internationals. Konstantinos Stafylidis will have to stay at home. Due to slight knee problems, the Greek international has cancelled for his team’s friendly international tour.
Patrick Osterhage and Armel Bella Kotchap will also not play in any international matches this week or next week. The two VfL players had to leave the training camp of the German U21 national team due to positive Covid-19 tests and immediately go into domestic isolation. We wish the players a continued mild course and a good recovery.
