What a shock! Marko Marin called by Joachim Low. Timo Hildebrand not.

Marko Marin, who was born in Bosnia Herzegovina, admitted he was shocked by the inclusion in the Germany Squad for the EURO 2008.

But who is Marko Marin? Although he played In the U-21 team last year, this midfielder who is 19 years old didn’t play any cap with the “A” squad. By the way his performances in the Second Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach attracted Timo Hildebrand to be called surrounded by the 26 players that were chosen.

See the best of Marko here.

In the other hand, the Valencia goalkeeper Timo Hildebrand also felt a shock and he is surprised but because he wasn’t elected to play the EURO 2008. We are waiting his official speech in his blog.

Así que Hildebrand quedó fuera de convocatoria? No me extraña del todo. Sí que no esté Neuer, el buen portero del Schalke.

Qué manía que tienen los alemanes con esto de citar jugadores extranjeros, como en este caso!

Saludos Tom!
