Former Everton defender Shkodran Mustafi has won a first call-up to the Germany squad.

Mustafi was released by Manchester United boss David Moyes while at Everton has been handed a surprise call up to the Germany squad by Joachim Low.

Shkodran Mustafi, now 21, was let go on a free transfer by Moyes in 2012 after making just one substitute appearance for the Goodison Park side.

But he has flourished at current club Sampdoria and has now been deemed good enough to make the Germany squad for their friendly with Chile on Wednesday.
