The Germany national team have donated €2.5 million to help tackle the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The world of football has come to a stop – people’s health and tacking this virus is without question the number one priority right now.
We realise that for so many of you, things have not come to a stop and must keep going.
We have all seen the effort and commitment that you have shown, how you have supported and helped one another – in hospitals, in nursing homes, in supermarkets and in your community, from one neighbour to another, and we as a team want to do our bit to help.
That is why we have decided to donate €2.5 million to the cause to help out immediately.
Every kind of act and offer of help counts, it’s up to all of us to make a difference. Stay healthy and look after each other and yourselves.”
