Ger­man trio to miss clash with Brazil

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Sport - - SOCCER -

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.
