Germany coach Joachim Löw has called up uncapped midfielder Emre Can for the world champions' Group D qualifiers against Poland (4 September) and Scotland (7 September). "Emre's development at Liverpool has been good. He is a versatile player and we admire his presence and dynamism," said Löw.
Germany will be without midfielder Sami Khedira against Poland (4 September) and in Scotland (7 September) after the 28-year old tore muscle fibres in his right thigh in a 2-0 pre-season friendly defeat with his new club Juventus at Marseille on Saturday.
"I am very sorry for Sami, this new setback is bitter," said Germany coach Joachim Löw. "He had great intentions for his start at Juventus, he was full of ambition. We also were counting on him for our EURO qualifiers in September. But I am fully convinced we will be successful against Poland and Scotland nevertheless. Sami has a fighter's heart, firm will, he is disciplined, hardworking and mentally strong. I am sure he will be back really quickly."
