Football News Update: Euro 2024, Champions League, and World Cup Highlights

Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer is hoping to make the perfect send-off to his illustrious international football career at the upcoming Euro 2024 tournament, which is set to take place in Germany.

The 38-year-old shot-stopper is aiming to complete his trophy collection by winning the European Championship, the only major title that has eluded him so far. Neuer, a World Cup winner in 2014, has made a miraculous comeback to the top following a near career-ending injury in December 2022.

Germany’s No. 1 goalkeeper spent almost an entire year on the sidelines after breaking his leg in a horrific skiing accident, but he has now returned to the pitch and will be between the sticks for his country at the Euros. This will be Neuer’s fourth European Championship appearance, having played in every major tournament for Germany since 2010.

“Neuer was too young to be part of Joachim Low’s squad for Euro 2008, but the retirement of Jens Lehmann after the tournament paved the way for him to be called up. He has since established himself as one of the greatest goalkeepers of his generation, with his performances at the 2014 World Cup, where Germany emerged victorious, etching his name in history.”

However, Neuer has yet to taste success at the European Championship, having faced semi-final exits in 2012 and 2016, as well as a last-16 defeat to England at Euro 2020. With the Euros taking place on home soil, the veteran goalkeeper has one final chance to claim the one trophy that has eluded him before he potentially hangs up his gloves.

Germany’s Euro 2024 campaign continues this afternoon with a match against Hungary, which will be broadcast live on talkSPORT. Fans can tune in to follow the action and support Neuer and the German national team as they aim to lift the coveted European Championship trophy.
