Löw nominates rookies Hunt and Müller, Adler calls off

German headcoach Joachim Löw has nominated rookie Aaron Hunt into the squad for the two final friendlies of the year against Chile in Cologne on November 14th and against Ivory Coast in Gelsenkirchen on November 18th.

Against Ivory Coast, Löw has also nominated another rookie. Thomas Müller will complete the squad for the match in Gelsenkirchen. Ahead of this encounter, striker Müller from Bayern München is a member of the German Under 21 team that faces Northern Ireland in a EURO qualifier in Belfast on November 13th.

“I want Thomas to get a glimpse of the atmosphere in the ‘Mannschaft’. This is part of our concept which has also been arranged with Under 21 coach Rainer Adrion. Thus, Müller first has to take responsibility in the important Under 21 match in Belfast”, says Löw.

Bundesliga topscorer Stefan Kießling from Bayer Leverkusen returns to the squad that meets in Bonn on Tuesday to start preparation.

Keeper Tim Wiese will start the match against Chile as Manuel Neuer will make his debut on homesoil against the Ivory Coast.

Rene Adler who was nominated as third keeper called off on Friday due to a keratitis in his eye. Löw announced, he won’t nominate another third keeper.

Simon Rolfes and Cacau will also be missing due to injuries.
