Rüdiger's Euro ticket confirmed by his childhood döner place

Antonio Rüdiger's place in Germany's Euro 2024 squad has been confirmed by a döner restaurant in Berlin that he used to visit on a regular basis when he was a child.

Real Madrid centre-back Antonio Rüdiger's spot in Germany's squad for Euro 2024 has been officially confirmed. 

‘Hisar’ - a döner restaurant in Berlin where Rüdiger used to eat regularly when he was a child - made the announcement on Wednesday. 

"Hi Antonio, my brother. I wanted to let you know that you've been called up for the European Championship," said owner Arif Keles in a video posted by the German Football Association. 

"Because you were a guest of mine as a school pupil, the first 50 pupils will get a free döner on the house today," explained Keles.

Julian Nagelsmann's full squad will be announced on Thursday, but a number of the included players have already been announced in different ways.
