Germany national team manager Joachim Low has named his squad for the upcoming games against bitter rivals the Netherlands and 2018 FIFA World Cup winners France.

Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan has been left out of the squad after picking up a hamstring injury in the Champions League Match Day 2 clash against Hoffenheim.

Freiburg striker Nils Petersen will also miss out through a shoulder injury.

Low has made a few changes to the squad giving Schalke striker Mark Uth a maiden call-up.
