Germany have appointed Julian Nagelsmann as manager on a contract until July 2024.
The 36-year-old succeeds Hansi Flick, who was sacked after a poor run of results, culminating in a 4-1 friendly defeat by Japan earlier this month.
Nagelsmann has been out of work since he was sacked by Bayern Munich in March after less than two years in charge.
Germany are hosts of next summer’s European Championship finals, which run from 14 June to 14 July 2024.
“We have a European Championship in our own country. That’s something special – something that happens every few decades,” said Nagelsmann.
“I have a great desire to take on this challenge. We will be a close-knit group next year.”
Nagelsmann’s first match in charge will be a friendly against United States in Connecticut on 14 October before facing Mexico in Philadelphia three days later.
