It's not a disadvantage for Germany's title chances that the Euros have been moved to 2021, says Leroy Sané.

Leroy Sané believes Germany have a 'good chance' of going all the way at next year's European Championship.
"We have a young team, but we still have experienced players, who have won the World Cup or the Champions League. It's a very good mix. Now, we have another year to play together and get to know each other. I think we have a good chance of winning the trophy in 2021," Sané told Sport Bild.
The fact that the tournament has been postponed until next year due to the coronavirus pandemic means that Sané and Niklas Süle, who have both struggled with long-term injuries, will have plenty of time to get back to their best.
"Because of the suspension due to the corona crisis, players like Niklas Süle and I will have more time to get back into top form. That shouldn't be a disadvantage for the German title chances," Sané said.
Germany last won the European Championship in 1996, beating Czech Republic in the final.
