[MUSIC PLAYING] - Yeah, I think the last season was a season to learn about because it was not that good. But yeah, I think I knew also last season we had the quality to be up there, but we didn't show it on the field. And I think we've learned a lot last season, and we don't want to be in that situation anymore. That's why this season is different. Mentally, we're completely different on the pitch. We play together. The team spirit is different. And yeah, I try my best to give everything for the team.

If I'm on a pitch, I want to win no matter who we play against, and I think that's also the mindset of the team.

Yeah, of course it would be great if he would call me there. But I know it's hard because there are also other players in that position, many other players on that position, that play international and play on good teams and also play good seasons. It's hard, I know. Maybe it's going to be a hard decision for him. But I'm trying my best, giving my best in every game, at first for our team Leverkusen and, of course, also for me personally to show myself for the national team. And we'll see in four or five weeks if he calls me or not.
