Lucas Beraldo and Wendell are two pleasant surprises (even though I don't expect them to get actual caps). Let's say their inclusion balances Emerson Royal's exclusion.

Richarlison's injury means that I'll have just one forward. For the man who picked Firmino, Gabriel Jesus and Everton, this is something that hasn't happened in a while. I wonder: if Malcom hadn't gone to Saudi Arabia, would have he been selected?

Good to see that Dorival was clear-headed enough not to pick absymal Casemiro. He selected Marquinhos, though?!

You know Pogba stopped playing in the NT when he moved back to Juventus, right?

There are four goalkeepers but no Leno, Hummels has been excluded but no Suele, it's 2024 but no Moukoko... ter Stegen and Musiala will feel lonely.

(notice how not even I can find a way to select Timo Werner :D )

Suele,
Süle is following in Walter's footsteps

Seriously, his ongoing and quite open struggles to maintain his weight
have negatively impacted his standing in Dortmund, too.

Ciao,
Werner

And Higuain, Drenthe, Anderson, Goetze... I definitely have a type.

(BTW, this list is incomplete. If you need more examples, Futbolmetrix would be happy to provide them.)

I hope he gets well. (Not only because he could get back in the NT...)

I need Muller to score two points to overtake MH, 4 to overtake Jesus (Neymar will eventually be back, but I'll take the temporary second place...). Come on, you Mannschaft!

Let's ignore all the rest of the 25-man squad...

Long live pre-tournament friendlies where all players get a few minutes

"Thomas Müller did not play yesterday, but Julian Nagelsmann repeatedly
consulted him during the game and both discussed and exchanged ideas.
Müller acted as an assistant coach instead of a substitute"

Second place in Cycle 1 sixteen years after it started, you'll never
sing that!

Pleasant surprise that Henrichs and Koch are in. They won't play much
if at all. But no Klostermann.

The problem is not the selection, but that my three players will warm the bench.

Kante... ROTFL!

How can one not be happy with Kante on the team? He is the epitome, the platonic ideal of happiness!
