İlkay Gündoğan ‘happy’ following return to the German national team
İlkay Gündoğan has expressed his happiness on returning to the German national team. The Borussia Dortmund midfielder started his first game for Germany since August 2013 and played the full 90 minutes.
Lukas Podolski and Marco Reus found the back of the net as Germany record a 2-2 draw against Australia in Kaiserslautern.
Gündoğan posted a picture on Instagram along with the caption, “Unfortunately it wasn’t enough for a win today at #GERAUS. Really happy I could play the full 90 minutes for the @dfb_team. Thanks for your support!”
The hard working midfielder was one of the central figures of the Dortmund side that reached the final of the UEFA Champions League in the 2012-13 season.
Germany take on Georgia in a Euro 2016 qualification clash on Sunday. Gündoğan has four assists and two goals in 23 appearances for Dortmund this season.
