New-Look Germany Set for Holland Test

Marco Reus has called on Germany to win back the trust of their fans when they launch their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign against old rivals the Netherlands on Sunday.

Germany were booed by fans in Wolfsburg during their 1-1 friendly draw against Serbia last Wednesday, and Reus has said that it is up to the players to change the mood.

“We need patience from the fans, but it is our job to make sure the atmosphere improves,” he said on Friday.

Germany have not won a competitive game since they beat Sweden at the World Cup last summer. They crashed out of the World Cup shortly after that game, and were relegated from the top tier of the Uefa Nations League in the autumn.

Coach Joachim Loew declared the beginning of a “new era” last week, having brought in several young players and made the controversial call to drop three experienced stars in Thomas Mueller, Mats Hummels and Jerome Boateng.

Yet Reus warned that the new-look Germany would take time to reach their full potential.

“We are all ambitious enough to want to win every game, but it won't just start working from one day to the next,” he said.

The change of personnel means that Reus, 29, is among the most senior players in the team.

“I am at an age where I have to take on leadership roles, both here and at my club,” said the Borussia Dortmund star.

“Everything will take time, we have a lot of young players who need to find their feet.”
