The centre-back has just won the treble with Bayern München and senses a similar hunger for success within the national team.
"We can definitely compete for the trophy with this team. We have the same hunger as FC Bayern," Süle said at a press conference ahead of Germany's UEFA Nations League encounter with Spain on Thursday.
"Spain will provide incredibly tough opposition on Thursday. I think it will be a fierce contest. We miss the fans a lot, but you have to try and make the best of the situation as a player," he said on Germany's upcoming opponent.
The 24-year-old is delighted to be back in the national team set-up for the first time since he suffered a cruciate ligament rupture in October.
"It wasn't an easy time for me. I really missed being out on the pitch with the boys because we have such a great bunch of players," said the centre-back.
