Bernd Leno is aiming to impress with Germany and stake his claim for a spot in the squad should they make it to Euro 2016.
The Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper, called up for the first time for the current round of international fixtures, watched from the bench as Joachim Low’s men were beaten 1-0 by Republic of Ireland last Thursday.
He hopes that by working hard in training he can garner favour with the coaching staff and be considered for a spot in the squad at the finals in France next year, with Germany needing a point at home to Georgia on Sunday to seal their place.
“We’ll have to wait and see. My task here is to make the best possible impression and to put in some convincing performances during training,” Leno told the DFB’s official website
