Defenders: Markus Babbel (Bayern Munich), Thomas Helmer (Bayern Munich), Juergen Kohler (Borussia Dortmund), Lothar Matthaeus (Bayern Munich), Stefan Reuter (Borussia Dortmund), Olaf Thon (Schalke), Christian Woerns (Bayer Leverkusen).

Midfielders: Steffen Freund (Borussia Dortmund), Thomas Haessler (Karlsruhe), Dietmar Hamann (Bayern Munich), Joerg Heinrich (Borussia Dortmund), Jens Jeremies (1860 Munich), Andreas Moeller (Borussia Dortmund), Michael Tarnat (Bayern Munich), Christian Ziege (AC Milan).

Forwards: Oliver Bierhoff (Udinese), Ulf Kirsten (Bayer Leverkusen), Juergen Klinsmann , Captain, (Tottenham Hotspurs), Olaf Marschall (Kaiserslautern).

Who did not Make it: Borussia Dortmund's Matthias Sammer and Bayern Munich midfielder Mario Basler, both nursing knee injuries. Vogts named an extra list of 13 players on standby, who could still make it into the squad if injuries occurred. Among the 13 are Stuttgart striker Fredi Bobic, Leverkusen defender Jens Nowotny and Borussia Dortmund 21-year-old midfielder Lars Ricken. Nowotny would probably have been in the 22 if Matthaeus had not been recalled.

Eleven players on the list were members of the squad who won the 1996 European championship in England. Nine of the 22 were at the 1994 World Cup finals in the United States, where Germany was knocked out by Bulgaria in the quarterfinals.
