CONFIRMED: Germany line-up - Arsenal & Chelsea stars start but no Ozil

Here is how Germany will line up for this evening’s friendly against Armenia including players from Arsenal and Chelsea.

Germany starting XI: Weidenfeller, Boateng, Mertesacker, Hummels, Howedes, Lahm, Khedira, Reus, Kroos, Schurrle, Muller

Germany take on Armenia this evening in their final warm-up match before this summer’s World Cup.

Joachim Low was critical of his side’s last outing – a 2-2 draw with Cameroon – that saw Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil among those in the firing line for a below-par performance.

The German boss has until Monday to decide which three players currently in his 26-man squad will not be travelling to Brazil, so tonight’s match could be vital to someone’s hopes of securing a place on the plane.

Germany face a relatively tough group once they arrive in South America, with Portugal, USA and Ghana standing between them and a place in the first knock-out round.

Armenia will not be taking part in this summer’s tournament, but will see tonight as a great opportunity to cause an upset against one of the favourites.
