Timo Werner, Lukas Klostermann and Marcel Halstenberg were all called up to the Germany senior team again as they collected maximum points on the journey to Euro 2020 qualification. Seven other Leipzig players were also involved in Euro qualifying. Meanwhile, Matheus Cunha had his shooting boots on in the Maurice Revello tournament, finishing as top scorer with four goals as Brazil won the trophy.

Marcelo Saracchi and Uruguay have their eyes set on lifting the Copa América trophy, while Amadou Haidara will look to win the Africa Cup of Nations with Mali. Lukas Klostermann is looking to win the U21 European Championship trophy playing for the Germany U21s.
