Liverpool star Emre Can makes Germany Euro 2016 squad

Liverpool v Everton Liverpool news Emre Can Liverpool star man of the match

Liverpool star Emre Can has made the cut for the 23-man Germany Euro 2016 squad.

The 22-year-old has however, been listed as a defender which suggests that he will probably remain as a full-back and not play as a midfielder like he does in the Premier League.

Can has played as a central-midfielder under the stewardship of Reds boss Jurgen Klopp but Germany manager Joaquim Low continues to play him as a defender – as did former Liverpool head coach Brendan Rodgers.

Can is one of two Germany international players of Turkish origin in the squad with the other being Mesut Ozil.

Full Germany 23-man squad:

Goalkeepers: Manuel Neuer (Bayern Munich), Bernd Leno (Bayer Leverkusen), Marc-Andre ter Stegen (Barcelona).

Defenders: Jérôme Boateng (Bayern Munich), Emre Can (Liverpool), Jonas Hector (Cologne), Benedikt Hoewedes (Schalke 04), Mats Hummels (Bayern Munich), Shkodran Mustafi (Valencia), Antonio Ruediger (Roma).

Midfielders: Julian Draxler (VfL Wolfsburg), Sami Khedira (Juventus), Joshua Kimmich (Bayern Munich), Toni Kroos (Real Madrid), Thomas Müller (Bayern Munich), Mesut Özil (Arsenal), Lukas Podolski (Galatasaray), Andre Schürrle (VfL Wolfsburg), Bastian Schweinsteiger (Manchester United), Julian Weigl (Borussia Dortmund).

Forwards: Mario Gomez (Besiktas), Mario Götze (Bayern Munich), Leroy Sane (Schalke 04).
