Germany Youngster Jamal Musiala Could Make the Difference for His Country in Qatar

Germany youngster Jamal Musiala

Some drums can often be beaten too much, but that is not the case with the Bayern Munich star in question. As is similarly the case with Jude Bellingham, the ability that Germany youngster Jamal Musiala possesses is other-worldly. He basically has done already, but Musiala can now announce himself to the world once and for all.

Germany Youngster Jamal Musiala to Hit New Heights 

Can Hansi Flick’s Men Go All the Way?

The landscape when it comes to the German national team has shifted a lot over the last decade or so. 2014 World Cup glory was the peak of this, whereas crashing out in the following tournament’s group stages was the trough. Hirving Lozano starred for Mexico and Son Heung-min led South Korea in the German’s group, meaning they finished bottom and went out at the first hurdle for the first time since 1938.

Expectations are tempered somewhere in between these two outcomes with the emergence of excellent young talents moving the needle towards the former. Borussia Dortmund duo Youssoufa Moukoko and Karim Adeyemi are amongst those, as is Southampton defender Armel Bella-Kotchap. Bayern Munich man Jamal Musiala is at the fore of all of this though, breaking into a world-class midfield for both club and country.

Germany youngster Jamal Musiala has stiff competition when it comes to Flick’s midfield selections. His two club teammate’s Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka are complete enigmas plus Ilkay Gundogan of Manchester City is a particularly special player. In their final Nations League game against England, Musiala did get the nod but the caveat from that is the absence of Goretzka from the matchday squad entirely. One has to remember too that the man in charge is a former Bayern Munich manager!

Going forward, they aren’t as blessed with options. If Flick opts to play with a number 10 then Musiala is the prime candidate – his potential linkup with Serge Gnabry and Leroy Sane on the wings being a scary thought for anyone not of a German persuasion. Spain are the other big-hitter in group E but their squad pales in comparison to the well-rounded unit that is Die Mannschaft.

All About Bayern Munich and Germany Youngster Jamal Musiala

Zeroing in on Musiala in particular and the levels at which he is performing at, such a young age, is staggering. There is a wealth of midfielders in their late teens or early 20s setting the world alight. Jude Bellingham, Pedri, Gavi, Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni are just some of the competitors alongside Musiala.

The 19-year-old snubbed England so as to represent Germany and hasn’t looked back since. He made his national team debut in March 2021 and went on to make the squad for the European Championships. He picked up minutes against Hungary and this made him the youngest-ever German to play at a major tournament. It wasn’t just a case of playing either, he made a difference, assisting the decisive goal scored by Goretzka.

His resume is just as impressive when it comes to club football – he has 71 league appearances to date for the giants of the Bundesliga. Germany youngster Jamal Musiala continues to reach new heights and there is no sign of him letting up either. The comparisons between him and Bellingham are inevitable given their paths from England to Germany but they are very different players and can affect this tournament in very different ways.
