I don't think Germany have a chance of winning euro 2012 unless Ballack plays in the tournament.

MOST German players haven't even played with him or done so only a couple of times - Götze, Müller, Özil, Neuer, Hummels, the list is endless.

Two things. For one, Ballack is not good enough to be called up on his own merits anymore. And secondly, no need to retool a team that has been under development for a year now to accommodate on veteran who will not play more than a year anyway. Calling him up right now is just about the worst thing Löw can do short of calling up Ottl.

He is the most famous german player and it is not his fault that most german players are young. If Klose can make the squad then why the hell can Ballack not make the squad.
It upsets me to see pictures of Ballack's sons wearing germany shirt with "Ballack 13" on them and their father can't get in the national team due to a ba*tard like Jogi Loew. Get Loew sacked and get Ballack back in the german team.

No. Gerd Müller, Franz Beckenbauer, Oliver Kahn. These are the "most famous german player(s)". To call up a player because he's "famous" is, like I said, "the worst thing Löw can do".

And Klose is slowly but surely losing his spot too. Please, I know you're a gimmick poster, but give it a rest already. Ballack is becoming almost as bad as Beckham, way past his pride but completely unaware of it.

You must mean "way past their prime" because they certainly don't seem to be past their pride :lol:

Yea.
Und schon wieder Ballack. Offenbar will der 34-Jährige auf das angebotene Abschiedsspiel gegen Brasilien in Stuttgart am 10. August verzichten. Das würde bedeuten, die DFB-Karriere Ballacks ginge nach elf Jahren und 98 Spielen zu Ende

Here it goes on English:

Deutsche Welle wrote:
Löw gives Ballack the boot, ending 12-year international career

After months of speculation, former national team captain Michael Ballack has been told he is no longer wanted in the Germany setup following the impressive debut of several up-and-coming young stars.

The international football career of Germany stalwart Michael Ballack is officially over, national team coach Joachim Löw confirmed Thursday, ending months of speculation over the 34-year-old's playing future on the world stage.

The German Football Association (DFB) announced on its website that Ballack did not figure in Löw's plans for the Nationalelf, ending months of discussions over any role the former long-time national team captain may have played in the Germany setup.

"The last few months have shown that many young players have stepped into the spotlight and have good prospects," Löw said in a statement.

"After several phone conversations with Michael it is now the time, before the start of the European championship [next year], to have a clear position," Löw added.

Ballack, who re-signed last season with Bayer Leverkusen eight years after having left the club, will play his 99th and last game in national colors against Brazil on August 10.

The tall striker - whose accolades include featuring in the Germany team that finished second in the 2002 World Cup as well as in the 2008 European Championships - netted 42 times for the national team in all competitions and friendlies.

Ballack's career has been marked by injury, consigning him to the sidelines for long spells throughout his 12 years in the national setup. He has another year remaining on his contract with Leverkusen after missing a large chunk of the 2010-11 season due to a shin injury.

Loew should be ashamed of himself by showing no respect for Ballack.

Loew should be proud of himself by showing no respect for Ballack.

Seriously. I have nothing against the guy really, but his time is long past. With Kroos' recent decent performances to provide a proper backup to Khedirasteiger, there's just no reason to keep Ballack in limbo like this.
