Germany’s Löw names squad ahead of Russia friendly and Netherlands game!

Germany head coach Joachim Löw has announced his 24 players final squad ahead of their friendly against Russia (November 15) in Leipzig and their UEFA Nations League home match against the Netherlands (November 19) in Gelsenkirchen.

Due to different reasons missing from the squad are Marc-André ter Stegen (FC Barcelona), Jerome Boateng (FC Bayern München), and Ilkay Gündogan (Manchester City). All three are left out to give them time to recover keeping in mind their long seasons or injuries with especially the omission of Boateng coming as a surprise.

While the Russia friendly is a test match in which Toni Kroos will sit out, the Netherlands game will be the final match in the UEFA Nations League with a win a must for Germany to stay in the top tier, if the Netherlands do not win an earlier game against FIFA World Cup winners France.
