After being named in Joachim Low's provisional squad for Euro 2016, the young midfielder admitted it was a dream to be selected

Julian Weigl admitted receiving the news of his inclusion in Germany's provisional Euro 2016 squad on Tuesday was "impossible to describe".

The Borussia Dortmund midfielder was one of an initial 27 players selected by Low, and, along with Joshua Kimmich and Julian Brandt, one of three players to earn first time call-ups.

Weigl has established himself in the Dortmund first team under Thomas Tuchel, and his form was enough to convince Low to call him into the national team.

"The moment when Joachim Low called me is impossible to describe," Weigl told a press conference. "I was very, very happy and I jumped around a little at home.

"It was a dream to be with the national team, so I am looking forward to that."

Before then, however, Weigl still has one game left of the current campaign to play, when Borussia Dortmund taken on Bayern Munich in the DFB-Pokal final this Saturday.

"I'm really looking forward to my first final," he said. "We started with the preparation and you could feel everyone’s excited. 

"Everyone will give their best, so that the final will be successful. Everyone’s excited for the game against Bayern."
