Leno & Gnabry added to Germany squad

Bernd Leno and Serge Gnabry have been added to the Germany squad for the Nations League fixtures against Netherlands and France.

The duo was called up on Tuesday after Kevin Trapp and Leon Goretzka were ruled out of Joachim Low’s plans due to injury.

Bayern Munich confirmed in a brief medical update posted on social media that muscle tightness led to midfielder Goretzka’s withdrawal.

Leno and Gnabry were not part of the Germany squad that flopped at the World Cup, where Low’s men were surprisingly dumped out in the group stage.

Marco Reus, Antonio Rudiger and Kai Havertz had already pulled out through injury, with Emre Can having been called in as a replacement.

Schalke striker Mark Uth was the only surprise name on the original call-up list as Low has turned to a veteran side in advance of two tough tests in the Nations League.
