Gotze joined Eindhoven as a free agent. The German star said in an interview that he still has great ambitions, one of which is to return to the German national team.
Gotze said: "Of course I am still thinking about the national team. I'm only 28 years old this year. I still have big ambitions. One of them is to play for the national team again."
But Gotze also said: "My main goal now is to get back to health, playing here, everything else will follow."
Gotze has played for the German team in 63 international games, scoring 17 goals, and beat Argentina in the 2014 World Cup final. However, the last time he played for the German team was on November 14, 2017, when the German team drew 2-2 with the French team, and Gotze sent an assist.
