Arsenal star makes Germany’s Euro 2020 squad despite inconsistent form

Arsenal goalkeeper, Bernd Leno has been named in Germany’s squad for the Euros later this year.

The German has had an inconsistent season which started with a fight to remain Arsenal’s first choice.

They kept the former Bayer Leverkusen man on and cashed in on Emiliano Martinez, who joined Aston Villa.

The Argentinean has looked the better option as he stars for a Villa side that has impressed in the Premier League this season.

But Leno has been inconsistent and occasionally causing a goal with an error or even scoring an own goal against the Gunners himself.

Despite that, the German national team handlers have named him in their squad for Euro 2020.

They have released their team list for the competition which kicks off at the end of this season, through the DFB’s Twitter account.

Leno has been named alongside Bayern Munich’s Manuel Neuer and Kevin Trapp of Eintracht Frankfurt.

He is not the only Premier League player to make the cut with the likes of Timo Werner and Kai Havertz also getting into the squad.

Former Arsenal man, Serge Gnabry also made the cut and they will target glory in a competition that other top European teams like France and England will also compete in.

    “inconsistent”
    What a joke !

    Of course, everyone remember that he recently made a mistake by causing an own goal. But who doesn’t make a mistake ? It happens to all professional players, even the best.

    And it seems that you do not remember that most of the goals conceded, it wasn’t hist fault, but because our weak performances … even if they have showed a lot of improvements, they are still a lot of work to do.

    Without Leno, we would have probably conceded much more than we currently have.

    It’s a shame that you dare to blame Leno for that inconsistency, it’s all the team which has been inconsistent.

    The way Bernd Leno is being Painted by Most in dis Site is highly surprising or indescribable!!😒😒

    It is as if he is the Worst keeper in the EPL or Worst player@Arsenal!!
    For me, He’s better dan some of our past GK, Ospina, Sczeny, Almunia,2015/16 Cech, etc

    Currently, Leno is amongst d best keepers in d premier league!!
    Only Mendy, Jordan Pickford, De Gea, Allison, Ederson and d Young Leeds Utd keeper are better dan him!!
    He’s better dan Hugo Lloris!!

    So Pls, he should be attached, some RESPECT!!

    Article was just so negative. I got very uninterested relatively quickly. The writer seemed to be a fan of Martinez’s, hence the scathing criticism of Leno. Leno is being criticised unfairly. His good performances are often overlooked, while you all fixate on his bad performances. Leno is a top-class keeper. And you just gotta put some respect on his name

    I really wish they wouldtone down the dramatics

    Yes there is room for improvement but the idea that Leno is struggling having conceded about 5 goals fewer than Emi M who is declared as s brilliant for Villa is really a case for the media / press pursuing a narrative! They started to build it as Emi left and though Villa beat Arsenal home and Away, yet this narrative is not really true. Emi has not proven to be better than Leno despite numerous articles written stating this as a “fact”
