VfL Bochum centre-back Maxim Leitsch has been ruled out of the UEFA European U-21 Championship finals due to injury. Lars Lukas Mai, who is on loan at SV Darmstadt 98 from FC Bayern Munich, has been called up to replace him.
Mai has made four appearances for the Germany U-21s to date, last appearing for Stefan Kuntz’s side in November 2020. He is now part of the 23-man squad that will take on Denmark in the U-21 EURO quarterfinals this coming Monday, May 31 (21:00 CEST).
The Germany U-21 are currently preparing for the knockout stages at a training camp in South Tyrol.
