"I have decided together with the medical team of the club that I will do a complementary intervention on my knee. I'm sad that I will miss the Euro 2020 this summer with Germany," Ter Stegen wrote on Instagram.

 

"For the first time in many years I will be a fan at home supporting my country, I hope we win it."

Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer is expected to start at the Euros where Germany is in Group F along with Hungary, Portugal and world champion France. Germany will take on France in its first game on June 15 in Munich.
