Germany take on Slovakia in their Euro 2016 preparation game at the WWK Arena today.

Arsenal star Mesut Ozil will be on the bench going into the game and is probably due a rest after touring the middle east.

Liverpool midfielder Emre Can will also be on the bench but Besiktas star striker Mario Gomez will start.

Gomez scored 28 times in all competitions last season becoming the highest foreign player scorer ever in the history of the club.

Fellow Super Lig player Galatasaray striker Lukas Podolski will be on the bench.
