Ozil ruled out of Germany squad for England clash

Ozil ruled out of Germany squad for England clash

Germany will be without injured midfielder Mesut Ozil, winger Julian Draxler and forward Mario Gomez when they host England in a friendly worldwide on Wednesday, coach Joachim Loew said.

Germany had already confirmed goalkeeper Manuel Neuer would play no part in Wednesday's match at the Westfalenstadion due to a calf complaint. Julian Draxler has the same injury, an upper thigh muscle, ' Low said on Tuesday.

"They have minor hamstring injuries but it is too much of a risk to play them".

'Mario Gomez has an adductor muscle injury and may need a few days'.

Gomez's absence is especially disappointing with the striker appearing to have rediscovered his form having netted in his last three Bundesliga games for Wolfsburg.

Low also confirmed that in addition to Ozil Julian Draxler (hamstring) and Mario Gomez (groin) would "definitely not feature tomorrow".
