Lebanese-German professional football player Amin Younes has been invited to play with Germany‘s national football team.
Younes, who was born in the city of Düsseldorf in Germany to Lebanese parents from Tripoli, North Lebanon, was nominated on Friday by the coach of Die Mannschaft, Joachim Löw, to play in 3 upcoming international matches.
The 27-year-old plays as an offensive midfielder for the Frankfurt Eintracht, a professional sports club based in Frankfurt, Hesse, which competes in the Bundesliga, the German football league system’s top tier.
Younes had battled a coronavirus (COVID-19) infection before starting with Eintracht in 2020.
He has been highly praised for his performance with the club, especially during its recent match against FC Bayern Munich, during which Younes displayed spectacular offensive and scored a brilliant goal that broke the draw and led Eintracht to a 2-1 win.
“His technique and his orientation are great,” Coach Löw said about Younes at the time of the February match.
The skilled player is set to play with the national team in 3 games between 25 and 31 March against Iceland, Romania, and North Macedonia, in the qualifiers for next year’s world cup.
It’s noteworthy that Amin Younes played with Die Mannschaft against Denmark back in June 2017.
