Julian Nagelsmann extends contract with Germany’s national team until 2026

In a surprising twist of events, Julian Nagelsmann has renewed his contract and will remain at the helm of Germany’s national team until 2026 World Cup. The 36 year old specialist has been strongly linked to Bayern Munich in recent days but obviously Nagelsmann has decided to extend his existing deal for another 2 years.

He was appointed in September of last year and so far has led the team in 6 friendly games, registering 3 victories, 2 defeats, and a draw. Nagelsmann is yet to taste comptetitive international football but it will change in June, when Germany hosts the European championship. Having automatically qualified as the host-country, Germany has not been involved in the qualifications or UEFA’s Nations League and their last competitive match remains the 4:2 win over Costa Rica at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Back then, the team crashed out at the group stage and Julian Nagelsmann will have the mission to restore the nation’s pride at Euro 2024.

Germany has played 2 games in 2024, winning both meetings. Last month, in the space of 4 days, Nagelsmann’s men recorded 2 highly respectable victories. First they registered a solid 0:2 triumph away to France and then prevailed 2:1 over the Netherlands on home soil.
