The exceptionally talented Bayern Munich player is eagerly anticipating the upcoming European Championship, where he will wear the iconic No. 10 jersey. This promotion to the national team fulfills a lifelong dream, inspired by legendary players like Lionel Messi, Ronaldinho, and Neymar, who have all proudly worn the same number for their countries.

Musiala first donned Germany’s No. 10 shirt in a friendly match against France in March. The 21-year-old midfielder received this honor following an impressive season with Bayern Munich, where he scored 12 goals and provided eight assists in 38 games across all competitions, despite the team not securing any trophies.

Although Musiala played only nine minutes in the previous European Championship, he made a notable impact during the 2022 World Cup. Despite Germany’s disappointing group stage exit, his performances were a highlight, showcasing his potential as a future star for the national team.

In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Musiala discussed the significance of wearing the No. 10 jersey for Germany. “The No. 10 is a great honor,” Musiala stated. “It has been a dream since I was a little kid. Whenever I saw Messi, Ronaldinho, or Neymar playing football with the No. 10 as a child, it was my wish to be able to wear that number one day.”

“So I am very proud that I can play for Germany with the No. 10, but I won’t let it go to my head. I will continue to play just as I did before with the No. 14 in the national team, or with the No. 42 at Bayern. It actually motivates me even more.”

In football, the No. 10 jersey is more than just a number—it is historically worn by some of the game’s greatest players, such as Pele and Diego Maradona, and is often associated with the team’s most skilled and influential player. Musiala’s acquisition of this number reflects the German national team’s confidence in his abilities and potential, which he aims to fully realize when they kick off their Euro 2024 campaign against Scotland on June 14.
