Germany are short of another regular for their friendly match against Spain in Vigo on Tuesday. Jérôme Boateng is suffering from a left calf problem and will stay in Munich, where Germany are scheduled to meet up later today before flying to Spain tomorrow morning.
Coach Joachim Löw has already announced a replacement in Robin Knoche. The VfL Wolfsburg centre-back has never been called up by the senior team, although he has featured eight times for the Under-21 side.
Boateng is the latest absentee in a list that already includes Manuel Neuer, Mats Hummels, Mesut Özil, Marco Reus, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Christoph Kramer and André Schürrle.
With international goals No25 and No26 in Friday's 4-0 win against Gibraltar, Thomas Müller passed Mario Gomez in Germany's all-time scoring charts, the FC Bayern München forward now lies 17th.
