Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer was overwhelmed by the warm welcome the squad received from fans as they arrived at their Euro 2024 headquarters in Herzogenaurach on Friday evening.

Some 2,000 supporters gave the team an enthusiastic reception despite pouring rain at an event organized by equipment supplier Adidas.

"The reception was amazing, so many people came to the small arena and welcomed us like that in this miserable weather. That's ery promising for the euphoria at the Euros," Neuer said.

Coach Julian Nagelsmann and his players signed autographs and posed for pictures.

"It's great that you're all here," Neuer told the fans as he threw them shirts from a cannon.

Germany are playing the June 14-July 14 tournament on home soil and start their campaign against Scotland on June 14 in Munich.

Ahead of the Euros, they will play two friendly games against Ukraine on Monday and against Greece on June 7.
