The nation last lifted the trophy in 2014

Germany will be looking to make amends for their performances at the 2018 World Cup when they travel to Qatar for this year's edition of the tournament as they surprisingly finished bottom of the group stage last time around in Russia. Germany will be entering this tournament under Hansi Flick and will like to outperform other teams in the tournament.

In Group E at the World Cup, Germany will face Spain, Japan and Costa Rica. Germany will play Oman in a warm-up match on November 16, but the game in Muscat is primarily to get the players acclimated to the Arabian Peninsula ahead of the tournament in Qatar.

Müller remains a key player for Flick, but Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos has retired, forcing the initiative on Bayern duo Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka, with İlkay Gündoğan another option.

Here's the 26 men's squad for the 2022 World Cup.

Goalkeepers: Manuel Neuer (Bayern Munich), Marc-Andre ter Stegen (Barcelona), Kevin Trapp (Eintracht Frankfurt).

Defenders: Thilo Kehrer (PSG); Niklas Sule (Borussia Dortmund); Lukas Klostermann (RB Leipzig); Antonio Rudiger (Real Madrid); Nico Schlotterbeck (Borussia Dortmund), Armel Bella Kotchap(Southamthon FC),Mattahias Ginter(SC Frieburg), David Raum(Rb Liepzig),Christian Gunter((SC Freiburg).

Midfielders: Joshua Kimmich (Bayern Munich); Jonas Hoffman (Borussia Monchengladbach); Julian Brandt (Borussia Dortmund); Leon Goretzka (Bayern Munich); Ilkay Gundogan (Manchester City); Jamal Musiala (Bayern Munich), Niclas Fullkurg((Werder Bremen),Mario Gotze(Eintracht Frankfurt).

Forwards: Leroy Sane (Bayern Munich), Thomas Muller (Bayern Munich),  Serge Gnabry (Bayern Munich), Kai Havertz (Chelsea), Youssoufa Moukoko (Dortmund),Karim Adeyemi(Borussia Dortmund).
