Striker Deniz Undav, 27, has received a call-up to the German national team and will play at the 2024 European Football Championship in Germany.

Bundestim head coach Julian Nagelsmann has called up many debutants and new faces for the home UEFA EURO 2024, including Yazidi-born footballer Deniz Undav.

Deniz Undav is a striker for Stuttgart, he had an outstanding season and helped the club to a second place in the Bundesliga, ahead of Bayern Munich. In the 2023/24 season, Deniz Undav scored 18 goals and made 10 assists. Undav had previously played for Brighton (England), Union St Gillois (Belgium) and in the lower leagues in Germany. He was still playing in the Third Bundesliga until the age of 23, but a move to Belgian side Union St-Gillois changed his career, with Undav scoring 25 goals and making 10 assists in the Belgian league in the 2021/22 season.

Yazidzidi footballer Deniz Undav made his debut for Germany on 23 March in a friendly against France, his only match for the Bundestim, but now he has a chance to play at UEFA EURO 2024.

Deniz Undav was born in Germany in 1996 to Yazidi parents who were forced to leave Turkey in 1980 due to persecution. Undav's family comes from the province of Şanlıurfa in south-eastern Turkey.
