Bayern Munich teenager Jamal opts for Germany over Nigeria

Bayern Munich teenager Jamal Musiala has decided to play for the Germany national team instead of England after a talk with head coach Joachim Low, he said on Wednesday.

The 17-year-old attacking midfielder became the youngest English scorer in the Champions League when he netted for Bayern in Tuesday’s 4-1 win over Lazio in Rome. Hours later he announced his decision to play for Germany.

“I have a heart for Germany and a heart for England,” Musiala told Germany’s ARD Television. “I thought about it a lot but at the end I listened to the feeling that it is the right decision to play for Germany.”

The Stuttgart-born Musiala played almost his entire youth career at Chelsea from 2011 before joining Bayern in 2019 and thus was eligible to also play for England.

He has also represented both Germany and England at national youth level but said a chat with coach Low helped swing the decision in Germany’s favour.

“I had a very good an honest discussion with Joachim Low. We met in Munich and he showed me clearly my way to the national team,” Musiala said.
