German trio to miss clash with Brazil
GERMANY striker Thomas Mueller along with midfielders Mesut Ozil and Emre Can will miss Tuesday’s friendly against Brazil in Berlin, the German Football Association (DFB) has said.
Mueller, 28, and Arsenal playmaker Ozil featured in Germany’s high-tempo 1-1 friendly draw with Spain on Friday, with the Bayern Munich forward scoring the equaliser to cancel out Rodrigo Moreno’s early opener.
“Thomas Mueller and Mesut Ozil will not travel with the squad to Berlin,” the DFB said on their official Twitter account.
Can, 24, was ruled out of the Spain match with a back injury and has returned to Premier League side Liverpool after failing to recover in time for the Brazil clash.
