Germany team after plane forced to land in Edinburgh following Iceland match

It is not yet clear why the incident occurred.

The team Tweeted a message in German that read: “Safety first. Safe stopover as a precaution in Edinburgh. From there, individual onward and return journeys are planned.”

A second post confirmed the team were “fine”.  The team had to fly overnight due to German regulations that ban planes from landing during the night.

The plane that the Germany players were originally on did not take off again.

Work was still underway late on Thursday morning to find a replacement aircraft for those Germany players still stuck in Edinburgh.

There is a lot of pressure from Bayern Munich for this to happen quickly, as they play away at RB Leizpig on Saturday, live on Sky Sports.

Bayern Munich’s Jamal Musiala, Leon Goretzka, Niklas Suele and Leroy Sane are still in Edinburgh, while Manuel Neuer, Joshua Kimmich and Serge Gnarby flew straight from Reykjavik to Munich.

RB Leipzig’s Lukas Klostermann is also still waiting for onward travel.
