Lukas Nmecha by delivery of the U16 all Junior teams of the English football Association and shot at the European under-19 championship in 2017, the winning goal in the final. Recently, he appeared in the squad of the German U21 he played on Tuesday night against England. Nmecha was born in Hamburg, his family migrated in 2007 to England. The DFB had the footballer, who is currently on loan to Preston North End, for some time. the Dominik Wolf

In the summer of 2017 was reached Lukas Nmecha on the previous peak of his career. He had shot the English selection in the final of the European under-19 championship in Georgia, just the title and looked forward to a future, as she was given since that auspicious year, so many talents from the English Junior teams; even the jump in the A-selection seemed to be possible.

Even more surprising was that his Name was called around two weeks ago at a squad presentation of the German football Association (DFB): UEFA European under-21 coach Stefan Kuntz presented in Frankfurt will be the squad for the test matches against France and England, Nmecha was one of three newcomers.

Why should accrue the one who has to go through to the U16 all Junior teams of the English football Association, now suddenly for Germany and then, of all things, even against England? Nmecha was born in Hamburg, his mother is German, his father Nigerian. In 2007, moved the family to England when he was nine. After two years in England, the Scouts from Manchester City have been aware of him and took him in the youth Academy. Last year, he was under Pep Guardiola made his debut in the Premier League before he was loaned out in the summer on the second-tier club Preston North End.

At the U21 European Championships in two years may Nmecha

play Nigeria had hopes for Nmecha - similar to the German U21 national team players Jordan Torunarigha (Hertha BSC), Felix Uduokhai (VfL Wolfsburg) and Emmanuel Iyoha (Erzgebirge Aue), which also have roots in the African country. But suddenly, the 20-Year-old appeared on the squad list, as long as his nomination is scheduled. The DFB had it for quite some time, already in 2012, Nmecha was invited to an U15 training course.

His younger brother, Felix, is also at Manchester City under contract, and rehearsed already a cheerful interplay between Nations and their respective selections. After working in the English U16, he decided, in the meantime, for the German U18, a little later, but again for the English U18 aground. Lukas Nmecha, by contrast, seems to have set: "I see Germany as my homeland. Until I was nine years old, I lived in Hamburg. I also have a big relation to the city and the people."

The DFB had made to the world Association Fifa the application for a temporary injunction to a dressing change. For the game against France on Thursday (2:2) was the game's permission, on Tuesday shortly before the kickoff of the game against England, he received them; in 2:1 (1:1) in Bournemouth, he came in half an hour. "I know ten minutes before the game that I can play," said Nmecha. He had a goal-scoring opportunity, it remained inconspicuous. For his new coach, it was good that Nmecha was already in the team: "the Important thing is that we had him ten days with us," said Kuntz. The perspective that resonates therein, is specific: It could be used not only in the U-21 Championships in June, but would also be entitled in the tournament 2021 game. And maybe he stretches, then, Yes, a Cup in the air - this time in the Jersey of the DFB.
