First choice goalie Manuel Neuer has been ruled out of games against Hungary and England in the Nations League after testing positive for Covid-19.
Germany have called up Hoffenheim’s Oliver Baumann to replace the Bayern Munich man in the squad but it’s Ter Stegen who will take his place on the pitch
“Marc will replace Neuer in goal. We called Oliver Baumann up, but Bernd Leno is also still an option for us,” he said.
“It was important for him to get playing time after his move to Fulham. Trapp is doing very well. I’m happy with the options we have in goal.”
Ter Stegen has been in excellent form for La Blaugrana in the early part of the season, conceding just once in La Liga and going 444 minutes without conceding a goal in the Spanish top flight

Gerard Pique has had to get used to life on the bench this season and it could even end up being the defender’s last campaign at Barcelona.
The 35-year-old is contracted to the Catalan giants until 2024 but reports in Spain reckon there’s a clause in his deal which means he could go early.
Mundo Deportivo reckon that Pique’s contract can be terminated if he plays less then 35% of Barcelona’s games this season.
