Patrick Herrmann will hope to make his Germany debut after earning a call-up for next month’s matches against United States and Gibraltar.
The Borussia Monchengladbach man – who scored 11 goals in 32 appearances this term – has been called up to the national team before, but has yet to make his senior bow.
That could change when the world champions host United States on June 10 before travelling to play Gibraltar in a Group D contest that should provide little danger.
Head coach Joachim Low has opted to rest Bayern Munich duo Manuel Neuer – who is struggling with an ankle injury – and Thomas Muller, as well as Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos.
“I have always been able to count on Thomas and Toni, they have given great service to the national team,” Low said.
“Manuel is a model of dedication. Everyone knows he is one of those players who always wants to play, but our team doctor informed me that Manuel is currently not training without pain.”
