Team and Selection News

Two of Germany’s most capped players are not available for this fixture. Bastian Schweinsteiger and Lukas Podolski, two centurions in cap terms, are both injured and thus won’t be part of Joachim Löw’s plans for this fixture. Otherwise Germany are at full strength. England have two uncapped players from Southampton in their squad, Adam Lallana and Jay Rodriguez, who are likely to feature at some point. Other young players such as Kieran Gibbs, Andros Townsend, Ross Barkley and Jordan Henderson may also figure.
