Wondering if your favorite BVB player is on holiday or got called up to their National Team? Here’s a round-up of players on National Team duty:
Germany: Julian Weigl
Julian Weigl with his first call up for the German National team. As Marco Reus had to head home early due to injury, Julian Weigl is the only Dortmund player in the Germany Squad for the Euros 2016.
Switzerland: Roman Bürki
Roman Bürki will feature for the Swiss national team at the Euros, but will probably remain only the second choice goalkeeper behind Gladbach’s Yann Sommer.
Poland: Lukasz Piszczek (and Jakub Blaszczykowski)
Lukasz Piszczek will most likely be Dortmund’s only regular starter at the Euros. He will team up with his peer Jakub Blaszczykowski on Poland’s right flank.
Turkey: Nuri Sahin
The Euros will be a great opportunity for Nuri Sahin to pick up some vital match fitness with Turkey. Though probably not as regular start.
Spain: Marc Bartra
Borussia Dortmund fans will make sure to watch their latest signing closely. Though he might only appear as the backup for Gerard Pique and Sergio Ramos.
Copa América Centenario
United States: Christian Pulisic
Christian Pulisic just wrote history by scoring as the youngest goalscorer for the USMNT in the 4-0 friendly win over Bolivia. He will certainly grab a a couple of minutes at the Copa América Centenario. Though he won’t meet his teammate Adrian Ramos in the first match against Colombia. The Dortmund striker was left out of the squad.
Japan: Shinji Kagawa
Dortmund fans will breathe a sigh of relief that Shinji Kagawa won’t have to undergo the strains of the Asian Cup. Though he will feature in the Kirin Cup which is a small tournament hosted by Japan. There will be only be a semi-final and a final, so Kagawa should report back fit next summer.
