Holger Badstuber

Badstuber has long been tipped to make a breakthrough at the highest level of German football and after establishing himself in the Bayern Munich side, he will be keen to make the most of his second shot in a major international tournament this summer.


He started the 2010 World Cup finals as Germany’s first choice left back, only to lose that spot in the team by the end of the competition and Badstuber will doubtless view Euro 2012 as his chance to make a more positive impression in the heat of a tournament scrap.


A public battle with then Bayern coach Louis van Gaal last season saw this young defender hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons, but he has learned from that experience and established himself in Joachim Low’s Germany side, playing in nine of their Euro 2012 qualifiers and emerging as a more mature performer ready for the challenges ahead.
