I dont also see Germany's and Portugal's squads yet

German team: 

Goalkeepers: 

Timo Horn (1. FC Köln), Jannik Huth (FSV Mainz 05)

Defenders:

Robert Bauer (FC Ingolstadt), Matthias Ginter (Borussia Dortmund), Lukas Klostermann (RB Leipzig), Philipp Max (FC Augsburg), Niklas Süle (TSG 1899 Hoffenheim), Jeremy Toljan (TSG 1899 Hoffenheim)

Midfielders: 

Lars Bender (Bayer Leverkusen), Sven Bender (Borussia Dortmund), Julian Brandt (Bayer Leverkusen), Max Christiansen (FC Ingolstadt), Serge Gnabry (FC Arsenal), Leon Goretzka (FC Schalke 04), Max Meyer (FC Schalke 04)

Forwards:

Nils Petersen (FC Freiburg), Grischa Prömel (Karlsruher SC), Davie Selke (RB Leipzig)

 

Horn, Ginter, Klostermann, Süle, Toljan, Lars Bender, Brandt, Goretzka, Meyer and Selke are good selections. All other players dont belong in this team. I am missing at least one out of Weiser/Gerhardt, a second good goalkeeper (Karius), Dahoud, a second good striker (Volland) and a second good winger (Bellarabi).

German women's team:

Goalkeepers:

Almuth Schult (VfL Wolfsburg), Laura Benkarth (SC Freiburg)

Defenders:

Josephine Henning (FC Arsenal), Saskia Bartusiak (1.FFC Frankfurt), Leonie Mayer (Bayern München), Annike Krahn (Bayer Leverkusen), Tabea Kemme (Turbine Potsdam), Babett Peter (VfL Wolfsburg)

Midfielders:

Simone Laudehr (Bayern München), Melanie Behringer (Bayern München), Lena Goeßling (VfL Wolfsburg), Sara Däbritz (Bayern München), Melanie Leupolz (Bayern München), Isabel Kerschowski (VfL Wolfsburg)

Forwards:

Alexandra Popp (VfL Wolfsburg), Dzsenifer Marozsan (Olympique Lyon), Anja Mittag (Paris Saint-Germain), Mandy Islacker (1.FFC Frankfurt)

 

Reserves:

Lisa Weiß (SGS Essen), Kathrin Hendrich (1.FFC Frankfurt), Lina Magull (SC Freiburg), Svenja Huth (Turbine Potsdam)

 

Haha ... haha ... haha ...

 

I cant believe that Pauline Bremer, who won the champions league with Paris Saint-Germain, wasnt nominated, obviously Neid wants to be eliminated as quick as possible, to give our players longer holidays. We are also clearly missing Lena Lotzen due to injury, not to mention Sasic, Kessler and Angerer who all retired.

With players like Bartusiak, Krahn, Laudehr and Behringer we could as well just give our spot to a team that really wants to win a medal. Mayer, Däbritz and Leupolz are the only interesting players in this team.

 

Edit: If there is an other reason why Bremer wasnt nominated, then i cant blame our coach.

Germany men's team is pretty decent, lots of players who are growing well on football, women's team still good too, even without some important players

LOL. That makes more sense, although I got that story from a Sporting fan friend of mine.

 

Coincidentally there was a related news about this Teo topic on today's newspaper :)

In men I think Brazil, Colombia, Mexico/Germany have the best squads.

Yes, he did.

 

Olympics is seen as a minor competition for male footballers, it's never going to be the priority for them unless there isn't any other international tournament the same summer.
