Why Mats Hummels is not selected in Germany World Cup 2022 Squad?

Coach Hansi Flick has announced the Germany’s squad for the upcoming FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar. The veteran defender of Dortmund failed to get a place in the squad of 26 players for the 2022 World Cup. Germany have gone through a transition change after former coach Low’s exit from the national team. In choosing the current team, the former Bayern Munich coach has overlooked one of the best defenders. Mats Hummels, who played a very crucial in the winning run of Germany at Brazil 2014 World Cup, has not been included in Germany Squad. Here’s why Mats Hummels is not selected in Germany World Cup 2022 Squad?

Mats Hummels was a part of Germany National Team since 2010. He represented his nation in two World Cup tournaments, in 2014 and 2018. He played an important role in the World Cup as he was named to the Best XI for the 2014 World Cup. Hummels has 76 caps for Germany.

Why Mats Hummels is not selected in Germany World Cup 2022 Squad?

The reason behind Mats Hummels omission from the Germany’s World Cup squad is that the coach preferred to go with younger players. New players like Nico Schlotterbeck and Niklas Süle, have been called up by Hansi Flick over Hummels. The coach has been trying to build the team again with replacement of veterans. This time, they have a squad with the mixture of experienced and youth players in it.

Thomas Muller and Mats Hummels were dropped after Germany’s disappointing run in 2018 World Cup and a poor Nations League performance later that year. However, the coach called them back for Euro 2020. But this time, Hansi Flick called only Muller for Qatar World Cup and left Hummels. Former coach Joachim Low also told him that he would no longer be considered for selection for Die Mannschaft. 

Mats Hummels left Bayern Munich in 2019 to join his former club Borussia Dortmund.
