Gun­do­gan out, Sane in as Loew names Ger­many squad

Observer on Saturday - - Sport -

- Manch­ester City mid­fielder Ilkay Gun­do­gan was left out as Ger­many coach Joachim Loew named a 23man squad for up­com­ing Na­tions League matches against the Nether­lands and France.

Gun­do­gan hob­bled off clutch­ing his ham­string in the 2-1 Cham­pi­ons League win at Hof­fen­heim mid­week.

But club-mate Leroy Sane, sen­sa­tion­ally left at home by Loew for the World Cup, re­turns to the fold af­ter pulling out of the squad for the first round of Na­tions Cup matches af­ter his part­ner gave birth to their baby daugh­ter.

Sane came off the bench to­wards the end of a 0-0 draw with France in Mu­nich in Ger­many's first game in the in­au­gu­ral UEFA Na­tions League last month, but with­drew prior to a sched­uled friendly with Peru.

Ger­many play the Nether­lands at Am­s­ter­dam Arena next week Sat­ur­day be­fore trav­el­ling to the Stade de France for their re­turn fix­ture with France three days later.

The only new face in Loew's squad is Schalke striker Mark Uth, 27.
