Cologne (AP) – The German national football team plays in the test match against Turkey in Cologne with Gladbach debutant Florian Neuhaus in the starting line-up.
In the attack, national coach Joachim Löw gives Luca Waldschmidt, who moved to Benfica Lisbon in the summer, a new chance on Wednesday evening. The former Freiburg is actively supported by Kai Havertz and Julian Brandt. The generally inexperienced B-Team is led by Julian Draxler as captain. The city of Cologne has allowed a maximum of 300 spectators due to the corona contamination.
Low has voluntarily relinquished several service providers in the friendly game. For example, he saves the five players of FC Bayern for the Nations League matches next Saturday in Ukraine and another three days later in Cologne against Switzerland.
THE GERMAN STARTELF:
Leno – Can, Koch, Rüdiger – Henrichs, Neuhaus, Draxler, Schulz – Havertz, Brandt – Waldschmidt
