Werder Bremen’s Serge Gnabry: I nearly rejected Germany chance
German coach Joachim Low is happy with his 'inexperienced' side, which played out a scoreless draw against Italy.
Werder Bremen winger Serge Gnabry says he nearly turned down his Germany call-up for the 2016 Olympics.
Gnabry, 21, ended up as the top scorer at the Olympics over the summer as Germany won the silver medal in Rio de Janeiro.
His form led to a move from Arsenal to Werder Bremen and last week he made his senior international debut in the 8-0 win over San Marino, becoming the first German to score a hat trick in his first appearance for the country since Dieter Muller against Yugoslavia in 1976.
