Andre Schurrle bagged a hat-trick for Germany against Sweden on Tuesday night…
Germany coach Joachim Lowe has thanked Chelsea for Andre Schurrle’s recent development, reports the Mirror.
Lowe admits to being unhappy with the attacker’s form last season, but believes the move to England has revitalised the player, and reckons he’ll definitely be bringing Schurrle on the plane to next summer’s World Cup in Brazil.
“I told him recently that last year I wasn’t very happy with his development,” said Lowe, speaking after Schurrle bagged a memorable hat-trick against Sweden on Tuesday evening.
Germany had already secured their qualification at the top of the group, and will be one of the favourites next summer.
“But now, in some games with us and in England, he has shown again what he can do. He is dynamic, works back well and has a strong finish,” continued the longstanding German boss.
“His physical strength was also always an issue, but he has worked well. If he continues to play like that, the World Cup will certainly not pass him by.”
Schurrle’s hat-trick came in a 5-3 victory over second placed Sweden, and reminded Blues boss Jose Mourinho just what a talented individual he has at his disposal. Schurrle has featured in most games for Chelsea, but sometimes from the bench; and he has yet to score for his new side.
The 22-year-old has played the full 90 in Chelsea’s last two outings though, and looks as though he’s ousted the likes of Kevin De Bruyne from Mourinho’s current first-team plans.
