Mario Götze, Youssoufa Moukoko and Niclas Füllkrug make Germany 2022 World Cup squad

Heading for the World Cup (l-r): Joshua Kimmich, Jamal Musiala, Mario Götze, Youssoufa Moukoko and Niclas Füllkrug were all named in Germany's squad for the tournament.

Mario Götze, an offensive midfielder for Eintracht Frankfurt, was called up to the German national team for this month's FIFA World Cup, while Youssoufa Moukoko and Niclas Füllkrug, strikers for Borussia Dortmund and Werder Bremen, received their first calls.

Despite being famous for scoring the game-winning goal in the 2014 World Cup final against Argentina, Götze's career was hampered by illness and injuries, and in 2017 he received his final 63 caps for his nation.

The 30-year-old has helped the Eagles reach the top four in the Bundesliga and qualify for the round of 16 in the UEFA Champions League since his return to Germany with UEFA Europa League champion Eintracht this season.

Flick, who was Germany's assistant manager when they last won the World Cup eight years ago, recognized Götze's performance by including him in the team he will take to Qatar this month.

"Mario is a brilliant footballer - you can see in the last few matches that he's performing at a very high level," said Flick after revealing his 26-man squad on Thursday.

"You can see in every game that he's in great shape and he can go three times a week for 90 minutes. He's simply a brilliant player and a great person."

Füllkrug and Moukoko have both been in super form this term, and they were called up to compensate for injured attackers Timo Werner (RB Leipzig) and Lukas Nmecha (Wolfsburg).

Füllkrug stuck 19 times in Bundesliga 2 last season as Werder Bremen earned promotion and the 29-year-old has been exceptional on his return to the top flight with 10 goals in 13 matches.

"Niclas has 10 goals and has momentum on his side," said Flick. "I spoke with [Werder Bremen coach] Ole Werner for a long time about what he can bring to the team.

"You can see from the goals that he's working hard. The feedback I got from Ole is that he's someone who's constantly working on himself to try and get better."

Moukoko, meanwhile, has six goals and three assists for Dortmund, with the 17-year-old netting both a winner in the Revierderby against Schalke and in a 2-2 draw with Bayern Munich.

A regular starter for his club this season as a result of his performances, the Germany U21 cap became the youngest player to score 10 Bundesliga goals against Bochum last weekend with a double.

"His development has been good," Flick explained. "He brings a lot to a team. He's quick and lively, and he scored two great goals at the weekend. We're looking forward to working with him."

Flick also took time to express sympathy for Dortmund captain Marco Reus, who will miss yet another major tournament for his country due to an ankle problem.

"I've often said how I much I appreciate him," the former Bayern coach said. "We'll miss his talent in the final third. He tried everything to get to the World Cup but an injury like that takes time."

Germany play a final warm-up game against Oman on 16 November. Their first group-stage game in the World Cup is against Japan (23 November), before they take on Spain (27 November) and Costa Rica (1 December).

Key player: Manuel Neuer

When Manuel Neuer is discussed, it is typically in terms of how his playing style has revolutionized the game by allowing him to place himself closely behind the center backs and aid in constructing play from the back rather than simply sweeping up behind the defense. He is still regarded as one of the top goalkeepers in the world, and at age 36, he has won every football title there is.

As a result, less should be written about his duties as a sweeper-keeper and more should be stated about his leadership characteristics. His honesty, dependability, and ability to communicate both on and off the field genuinely set him apart. Since 2016, Neuer has served as the team's captain, and he will be crucial in preserving unity within the group at the World Cup.

Germany’s World Cup record

Germany's World Cup experience has had its share of highs and lows, evoking strong feelings in everyone involved. Germany, which has won the competition's championship four times (1954, 1974, 1990, and 2014), placed second four times (1966, 1982, 1986, and 2002), and third three times, is the nation that has had the most success overall. As a result, it is not unexpected that some of the most productive strikers in World Cup history are German. Gerd Muller (13 goals) and Miroslav Klose (13) both cemented their places in history with their World Cup heroics.
